Haye goes all in with Grosvenor

Global Gaming Expo announces Las Vegas event cancellation

The American Gaming Association (AGA), with partner Reed Exhibitions, has formally announced the cancellation of the Global Gaming Expo (G2E). The show’s organisers are committed to facilitating economic, education, and networking opportunities for the global gaming industry through a series of virtual G2E events throughout the rest of the year to better refl ect the current environment. G2E was scheduled to take place October 5-8, 2020; the next in-person edition of the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) will take place October 4-7, 2021 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. “In light of continued uncertainty around a viable

Former world boxing champion David Haye has offi cially signed his fi rst deal to become a sponsored poker player. David, who won the respect of many in the

poker community after his epic performance at Goliath 2019 which saw The Hayemaker fi nish 40th out of 9,300 players, will now join Grosvenor Casinos’ roster of professional poker players such as Joe Beevers, Jeff Kimber and Katie Swift. The next stage in the former Unifi ed World

Cruiserweight and WBA World Heavyweight Boxing Champion’s poker journey will see him competing against amateur and professional poker players on the live and online circuit. Speaking about how it feels to sign up as a

sponsored poker player, David Haye said: “Taking on Goliath last year was the culmination of a steep 12 month learning curve! When I first took on the challenge, I had no idea of the scale of the game, the skill and strategy involved. In pursuit of success I travelled the world and played with the world’s best and soon fell in love with the game. I went to Goliath to win and whilst fell short finishing 40th of 9,300 I’m proud to continue to work with Grosvenor, now sitting shoulder to shoulder with my former mentors as a sponsored player. I’m excited to continue to grow and test my ability on the circuit.” Russell Tamplin, Head of Poker for Grosvenor

Casinos, said: “There’s no doubting David has found a new passion for poker and now has the skills to back this up. Goliath is one of the most gruelling tournaments to compete in and David did himself proud last year. “We’re looking forward to seeing that same

determination and competitiveness that made him such a successful boxer being applied to his new role as a sponsored poker player. We’re all excited to see what he does next on the live and online circuit.”

marketplace at a physical G2E show, global travel restrictions, and currently unknown guidance on large public gatherings this fall, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that we simply cannot hold an in-person G2E this year,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller. “Health and safety have always been our top priority and the uncertainty created by the ongoing pandemic makes this the prudent decision ahead of critical deadlines for exhibitors planning to participate.” For 20 years, G2E has welcomed nearly 30,000

attendees annually from across the globe, including executives representing key industry partners such as the Association of Gaming Equipment

Manufacturers, as well as the world’s top casino operators, sports betting companies, and FinTech and digital payments facilitators, among others. “We arrived at this decision after thoughtfully

engaging with national, state, and local public health authorities, as well as exhibitors and buyers who have shared industry observations and priorities. Ultimately, it became clear that proceeding with an in-person gathering simply was not feasible,” said Hervé Sedky, Reed Exhibitions Americas President. “It is our commitment to use G2E’s platform, as the leading convener of the global gaming community, to continue to deliver unparalleled education content, inspiring collaboration, and innovative ideas as the industry readies for continued growth,” added Sedky. “As the country works to reopen, the American gaming industry continues to adapt and provide the safest possible experience for our employees and customers while continuing to support the communities in which we operate. We look forward to the moment when we can convene together again with our colleagues from across the world and celebrate the resilience that our industry is known for,” concluded Miller. The event organisers will announce plans for virtual events and education in the near future.
