The American Gaming Association announced that it will host a roundtable discussion by major gaming industry CEOs at the Global Gaming Expo, to be held September 28 to October 1 in Las Vegas.
The panel will feature Caesars Entertainment CEO Mark Frissora in one of his first public forums since taking the reins of Caesars from Gary Loveman July 1. He will be joined by Scientific Games CEO Gavin Isaacs and Rush Street Gaming CEO Greg Carlin in a panel debating pertinent issues in the gaming industry.
“Gaming is a quarter-of-a-trillion-dollar industry that is constantly evolving and finding new ways to provide a world-class entertainment experience,” said Geoff Freeman, AGA’s president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to gather some of the most important voices in gaming for a compelling forum that will shed light on the future of the industry.”
Bo Bernhard, executive director of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ (UNLV) International Gaming Institute, will moderate the discussion. Among the topics to be discussed:
• Legalized sports betting and daily fantasy sports
• United States vs. Asian markets
• Gaming expansion vs. oversaturated markets
• Regulations that affect the growth of gaming
The CEOs will be available for one-on-one interviews with media immediately following the roundtable.
The roundtable will be the first in a series of high-profile keynote speakers featuring the most influential voices within the industry as well as powerful personalities in sports, hospitality and entertainment. More details will be announced at a later date.
As part of its new organizational structure, the AGA in May organized the first-ever CEO Roundtable, which provided an exclusive opportunity for the industry’s most senior leaders to coalesce in a closed-door forum to debate and consider current and future issues. The discussion at G2E continues the conversation in a public forum.
