What to Know Before Going to Global Gaming Expo 2017
Global Gaming Expo (G2E) is one of the top trade shows in the gambling industry. A Global Gaming Expo 2017 conference guide can help attendees fully benefit from their visit.
Making the most out of the trip to this year’s Global Gaming Expo Las Vegas usually involves prioritizing valuable sessions and presentations. Another is finding the right time and place in order to veer away from the crowds. Here are three useful tips to help you make the most of your time in this Reed Exhibitions event.
Categorize sessions according to importance
G2E has more than a hundred educational seminars set for four days. However, it is not feasible to spend the entire expo on every seminar. There are many opportunities present in the expo apart from the sessions.
An attendee can weigh the importance of a session to him by knowing what he can get out of it. This could either be a chance to catch up with the latest trends or learn a new skill for his business.
It is a good idea to have three categories for every session in the event. The first category is priority sessions that an attendee will not want to miss. The second type of session is the kind that interests a visitor but can afford to miss if he needs to. The last type is the one he can skip entirely.
Base the schedule on valuable sessions
One of the common mistakes of first-time attendees is to prioritize meetings in a schedule instead of the sessions. Almost every attendee in G2E will also have his own set of meetings or schedule to fulfill. There is a high probability that many might cancel their meeting which will leave an attendee with many open schedules throughout the event.
It is a good idea to plan meetings during sessions in the second category. This ensures that an attendee has something to fill any open schedules should one or more of their meetings get canceled.
Bring the necessary networking gear
Global Gaming Expo is a good opportunity to form a strong network with people in the iGaming industry or like-minded individuals. To make a good impression with other people—including those from the Bitcoin casino market—attendees need to have three important gears for networking.
The first is a large stack of business cards. Attendees may need to have a sizable deck to give away during the event. It is better to walk home with 20 cards instead of coming short of business cards when meeting with 10 people.
The second gear is an effective sales pitch. This should give people a good picture of an attendee’s work and his company in just one to two sentences.
The other important gear to have is a couple of pens, notepad, a tablet, or anything to write notes with. Taking down any important points when talking to someone can show that an attendee is paying close attention to them.
