2020 Global Gaming Expo Has Been Called Off in the reflection of the current situation. We can expect virtual educational events in the near future according to the American Gaming Association (AGA).
By taking a quick glimpse at the latest gambling news, you can see how the pandemic rewrote the plans of the gambling industry and sports events organizers. However, we must be open-minded to the solutions and live with the opportunity of virtual conferences. A great example was the 2020 AffiliateCon Virtually Live which not just shared essential business advice for this year but also watched by thousands. You can still watch the whole conference via YouTube.
The 2020 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) would take place from the 5th to the 8th of October. The event exists for nearly 20 years and it was visited by ten thousands of the industry each year.
Even if the 2020 Global Gaming Expo Has Been Called Off, We must Share our Experiences
The cancellation of the 2020 G2E can be a tragedy for a lot of firms. Since these networking events were the best chance for new companies to enter to the market. While for the big and well-known firms shared their vision and knowledge at these expos. And in the 21st-century information is the most valuable resource for online businesses.
Thus, we must find a solution and we must move to a digital platform. To be true, this is our best chance. So, if you receive an invitation for a conference like this, and you care about the future of you business, attend since it takes nothing but a little cramp of your day.
Bill Miller, The President of the American Gaming Association also shared his satisfaction, but he is also highlighted the importance of these measurements:
” In light of continued uncertainty around a viable marketplace at a physical G2E show, global travel restrictions, and currently unknown guidance on large public gatherings this fall, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that we simply cannot hold an in-person G2E this year… Health and safety have always been our top priority and the uncertainty created by the ongoing pandemic makes this the prudent decision ahead of critical deadlines for exhibitors planning to participate… We arrived at this decision after thoughtfully engaging with national, state, and local public health authorities, as well as exhibitors and buyers who have shared industry observations and priorities,” said Hervé Sedky, Reed Exhibitions Americas President. “Ultimately, it became clear that proceeding with an in-person gathering simply was not feasible. It is our commitment to use G2E’s platform, as the leading convener of the global gaming community, to continue to deliver unparalleled education content, inspiring collaboration, and innovative ideas as the industry ready for continued growth.”
In summary, as the 2020 Global Gaming Expo has been called off, we will miss our favorite gambling conference. Also, the biggest event of its kind. Anyhow, we must be ready for the changes, as we are part of an always changing industry. Stay tuned, to get informed about the upcoming virtual forums, where you can learn all the actualities of the gambling and affiliate industry.
