The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2022, presented by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and organized by RX, returned to Las Vegas this week for a fully in-person event, highlighting the gaming industry’s current strength and dynamic future.
Nearly 25,000 global gaming professionals, including suppliers, operators, and media, gathered at The Venetian Expo for four days of product exhibitions and debuts, education sessions, keynote speeches and discussions, and networking events. The attendance nearly doubled G2E 2021’s 13,000 and came in just shy of 2019’s total of about 27,000.
“Our industry is experiencing record-setting growth, thanks to the innovation and technology our entertainment offerings,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller. “After leading the return of tradeshows to Las Vegas last year, G2E 2022’s pre-pandemic atmosphere is a milestone for our industry and a testament to our collective excitement around gaming’s future.”
The 22nd edition of G2E, this year’s show featured more than 350 exhibitors and participating companies spread across 252,000 square feet, up 42 percent compared to 2021. The education program featured six keynote conversations and more than 80 seminars and panels on the latest industry trends and ideas.
“It was fantastic to bring the full global gaming community back together to reconnect and drive business,” said Korbi Carrison, G2E’s event vice president. “The energy and excitement at this year’s show announced that gaming is all the way back and made it the most impactful G2E yet.”
G2E 2023 will return to Las Vegas on October 9-12 (Education October 9-12; Expo Hall October 10-12), 2023, at The Venetian Expo.
