Short Term Plays with Lasting Impacts: Our Recent Insights on Gaming in the COVID Era and Beyond
During the first half of this year, The Innovation Group (TIG) team has examined the COVID-era gaming industry with particular perspective. History suggests that the dynamic changes seen over these past 15 months are likely to impact the industry for the long term. And, as those changes dovetail with industry-shifting structural developments and partnerships, the entire industry ecosystem may see a shift unlike it has for more than two decades. Take a look at the following pieces for more on this outlook.
In this piece from the May/June issue of Gaming America, TIG Executive Vice President Tom Zitt examines the industry's ongoing path to recovery and whether the Roaring 20s are really around the corner.
In the June issue of Global Gaming Business magazine, TIG President Michael Soll and Senior Vice President Michael Zhu collaborated on a broader piece that considers how expansions, efficiencies, and acquisitions may signify a new industry ecosystem.
This week, Gambling Insider posted our team's conversation with their editor, Tim Poole, for the GI Huddle. Hear more about the factors contributing to industry-shifting change for gaming from TIG President Michael Soll and Senior Vice President Brian Wyman.
