Registration is officially open for Global Gaming Expo 2018 (G2E), the world’s premier international gaming trade show and educational event presented by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and organised by Reed Exhibitions. G2E will return to the Sands Expo and Convention Center 8 – 11 October (Education: October 8-11 | Expo Hall: October 9-11) for a “high-powered event showcasing all aspects of the gaming industry”, including the show’s first-ever Sports Betting Symposium.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that deemed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) unconstitutional, G2E’s Sports Betting Symposium will gather experts from around the world to prepare gaming professionals at all levels for unprecedented growth opportunities in the sports betting sector across the U.S. Symposium participants will also receive an expert-led tour of sports betting solutions providers in the comprehensive expo hall.

“In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision, there is no better place than G2E to launch this Sports Betting Symposium,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association. “The conversation around sports betting will continue to evolve in the coming months, and the symposium will allow G2E attendees to engage in interactive sessions on this unprecedented growth opportunity for the U.S. gaming industry.”

Korbi Carrison, Reed Exhibitions/G2E Event Director said the show floor will also support this initiative with an expanded presence from companies supporting sports betting.

He said: “We’ve put a major focus on the evolution of G2E to ensure it is staying ahead of the curve as the gaming industry changes. The expo hall will feature highly anticipated offerings from across the core gaming sector, along with exhibitors presenting their products in sports betting technology, iGaming, integrated resort products and other non-gaming amenities.”
