GLOBAL GAMING BUSINESS PODCAST: Brett Ewing, Principal Resort Hospitality, Cuningham Group

When it comes to casino design, Brett Ewing has seen it all. From the themed casinos of the 1990s to boutique hotels and ever-changing trends, he has been on top of them all. But then when Covid 19 forced the casinos to close, he opened his mind and has assisted clients in re-thinking the very operations of their casino resorts. Although more distance between slot machines was already being considered before the virus, Ewing believes that social distancing will allow designers to make the casino experience more fun and efficient, and the entire resort experience will bring a new and brighter palate for operators to consider. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the GGB offices in Las Vegas in July.
