As mGamingWatch has been reporting in recent days, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the nation’s premier exposition for the casino gaming industry, has just announced new members of its team.
Ed Several, senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions, has been named to lead all aspects of G2E. Kevin McDonald has joined G2E as industry vice president.
The G2E trade show and conference is held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. G2E is organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA), a U.S.-based lobbying and advocacy group working on behalf of the industry. The event is managed by Reed Exhibitions.
Several has 11 years of senior event management, including work on the PGA (Professional Golf Association) Show and the National Hardware Show. He also has prior experience of gaming, having developed and marketed a keno-style racing game and multiple scratch lottery concepts in several U.S. states.
McDonald brings more than 15 years of experience as an event, sales, and marketing executive for the entertainment, professional sports, and casino gaming industries. He most recently led hotel and conference operations and special events at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona, Iowa.
