Global Gaming Expo 2022 (G2E) – presented by the American Gaming Association – returned to Las Vegas this week for a fully in-person event, with visitor numbers almost back to their 2019 level.
Nearly 25,000 global gaming professionals including suppliers, operators and media gathered at The Venetian Expo for four days of product exhibitions and debuts, networking events, keynotes and education sessions. The attendance was nearly double G2E 2021’s 13,000 and just shy of 2019’s total of about 27,000.
“Our industry is experiencing record-setting growth because of the innovation and technology that is fueling our world-class entertainment offerings,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller.
“After leading the return of tradeshows to Las Vegas last year, Global Gaming Expo 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 252,000sq.ft, up 42 per cent compared to 2021. G2E education featured six dynamic keynote conversations and more than 80 education sessions 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, 2023, at The Venetian Expo.
