The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) comes to the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas from October 1-4 (exhibits open on the 2nd). In the gaming industry, nothing comes close to G2E – it’s the world’s biggest, most comprehensive educational event of its kind. G2E is designed to keep your business and career on track in tough economic times, offering a huge variety of workshops, keynotes, and breakout sessions.
We have numerous blogs detailing green conference strategies and innovative ways to present your firm to conference attendees. And we do a lot more than just offer the most cost-effective plasma display rentals and other trade show equipment (the most comprehensive selection anywhere, by the way). We also investigate and make possible numerous creative ways to turn passersby into visitors, and visitors into prospects.
G2E conference sessions promise to pack ‘em in, as topics range from Casino Design, Gaming Technology, and Marketing, to Security & Surveillance, Social Media Boot Camp, and an invitation-only Gaming Investment Forum. Still, there will be plenty of exhibit floor wanderers that you can snag if you are exhibiting, and if you are well prepared and equipped.

The International Festival of Independent Games (IndieCade) will be held in multiple locations in CRE’s own hometown of Culver City (Greater Los Angeles to you out-of-staters) from October 4-7, with Festival Day itself set for October 6th. This action-packed event will feature game play, product previews, workshops and sessions, networking, an awards presentation, and much more. (Watch the IndieCade Festival video at YouTube.)
This year’s event will feature the IndieCade Village, a central indoor/outdoor “headquarters” location, at the corner of Main Street and Culver Blvd. (9300 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232 if you want to map it). With Wi-Fi for your iPad rentals and the promise of great weather, the IndieCade Festival is open to the industry and the general public, and is the one and only standalone, independent-focused game event.
Events include festival workshops, keynotes, hands-on play, a GameWalk and family-focused activities. Whether you’ve arranged to be there with the appropriate trade show equipment rentals, or plan to swoop in with a few co-workers and some notebook PC rentals for note-taking and emails, you will doubtless enjoy the event that the Los Angeles Times in 2009 called “the video game industry’s Sundance.”
