Solid Show

G2E 2017 got off to a rough start, but the heart and soul of the gaming industry made it a success

Although tragedy shadowed Global Gaming Expo 2017, the show turned out to be one of the most memorable of 16 years of G2E. The industry rallied together to demonstrate that nothing can stop progress, while paying homage to the victims of the Route 91 shooting.

Every slot manufacturer rolled out new and innovative products, while welcoming clients from around the globe. Other exhibitors with products and services for all aspects of the gaming industry were able to generate new business.

The conference program was altered slightly to focus on the events of the previous Sunday, but thousands of delegates heard cutting-edge solutions to topics of interest to the entire industry.

And of course, the networking events were second to none. Signature events, from the Chairman’s Reception where four new members were inducted to the AGA Gaming Hall of Fame to the Casino Entertainment Awards that featured stars such as Carlos Santana, the Isley Brothers and Clint Holmes, entertained and connected gaming people from all regions of the globe.

Save the date for next year’s G2E on October 8-11, 2018, and get prepared for the next “big show” for the industry, ICE Totally Gaming in London February 6-8, 2018.
