G2E’s opening keynote panel will feature three important gaming industry leaders.

The Las Vegas conference Thursday announced that Churchill Downs CEO Bill Carstanjen, Entain CEO Jette Nygaard-Andersen, and Bill Hornbuckle, CEO and President of MGM Resorts, will be the featured speakers at “View from the Top: CEO Outlook 2023”. CNBC reporter Contessa Brewer will moderate the panel.

“We are thrilled to welcome some of the biggest names in gaming to the G2E 2023 keynote stage, each bringing decades of experience and unique perspectives as they discuss the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for our industry,” said American Gaming Association President and CEO Bill Miller in a statement. “Each year, these conversations chart the future of gaming, and this year will be no exception.”

The panel is scheduled for Oct. 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Venetian Ballroom F at the Venetian Expo. The grand opening of G2E’s expo floor will take place after the keynote.

“From keynotes and conference sessions to the expo floor, G2E 2023 will be the catalyst for the deals and ideas that propel our industry forward,” Miller said. “We can’t wait to host the global gaming community in Las Vegas this October.”
