G2E 101 NEW!: 9:00am – 4:15pm

The most successful casino executives have a deep understanding of all segments of the gaming industry. While some start as dealers or in similar entry-level jobs, others join the industry at mid-level positions after graduating from college with a degree in a specific discipline. Still others transfer from related industries into more senior roles. No matter the route to the top, it often includes detours to get experience in other areas of the industry, allowing the executive to understand how the entirety of an operation works. G2E 101 was inspired by this successful model, offering management-level casino executives the opportunity to cross-train and learn more about other areas of the gaming business. These intensive Monday workshops will explain the duties, responsibilities and basics of a specific department and examine how it works in synergy with the overall operation.G2E 101 will highlight the following industry fields: Casino Marketing, Food & Beverage, Human Resources, Finance and Casino Operations.
