G2E 2011 is to take place 4 - 6 October, reflecting a newly adjusted schedule that moves the annual trade show and conference ahead by more than one month.

Also beginning in 2011, G2E will move from the Las Vegas Convention Center to the Sands Expo and Convention Center. The dates of G2E Asia, held annually in Macau, will also shift in order to create a more evenly spaced global calendar of events.

“G2E is the only international event developed ‘by the industry, for the industry,’” said Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., president and CEO of the American Gaming Association (AGA). “These changes, which were made with the needs of both exhibitors and attendees in mind, are concrete proof of our commitment to that creed. We expect the revised schedule to result in increased attendance and sales at all of our events.”

According to show organizers, the revised schedule brings with it numerous advantages, including allowing exhibitors more breathing room between major international gaming events. It also will help purchasing decision-makers at gaming companies plan for the year ahead with greater ease and, ultimately, enhance exhibitors’ bottom lines.

“As a Las Vegas-based casino operator, I know well how crucial G2E’s flagship show is to both the gaming industry and to this city,” said Michael Leven, president and COO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. “The Sands Expo and Convention Center is honored to host such an important annual event, and we are eager to do our part to help it grow in the coming years.”

In 2012, G2E Asia will begin taking place in late May, several weeks earlier than previous shows. The show will continue to be held at convention facilities at The Venetian Macau.

“Developing shows that address the needs of our participants always has been our top priority, and their feedback was the key driver of these changes,” said Courtney Muller, senior vice president at Reed Exhibitions. “We have had a tremendous run at the Las Vegas Convention Center and thank the team there for their tireless efforts on behalf of the industry. We look forward to this next chapter with great anticipation for continued success in G2E’s next decade.”

In November 2010, G2E, this year themed - The New Casino: Operating at Maximum Efficiency for Today’s World - will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The 2010 conference and trade show will offer several new programs, including the inaugural iGaming Congress at G2E, which will provide important insights and information about current and future prospects for online gaming companies. G2E 2010 will take place 16 - 18 November at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

G2E attracts nearly 26,000 industry professionals from around the world.
