Development Never Stops
Development has no life cycle. For gaming operators, it's an ongoing process across every element of their business. At G2E 2017, The Innovation Group (TIG) team will be looking at the topic through three important lenses -- business, property and employee development - at the following sessions:
Tuesday, October 3 | G2E Education (Veronese 2403)
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
A decade ago, the topic of international development dominated the G2E conference. Today, with more limited development opportunities, the conversation has turned to addressing the myths vs. the realities of our industry and how a collective effort is being made to help governments communicate those realities to constituents, notably the public. This session, led by TIG President Michael Soll , will bring together key contribu
tors to the international growth discussion for a look at the issues and opportunities that lie ahead.

3:00 - 3:15 p.m.
