Global Gaming Expo (G2E) honored as one of the 50 fastest growing Trade Shows in North America by Tradeshow Week Magazine

Third Consecutive Year for the Gaming Industry’s Premier Event

Global Gaming Expo (G2E) has received recognition as one of the “Fastest 50 Growing Tradeshows in North America,” by Tradeshow Week magazine. This is the third consecutive year that G2E has attained this status. Organized jointly by the American Gaming Association (AGA) and Reed Exhibitions, G2E is the pre-eminent event for the worldwide gaming-entertainment industry.

TSW Fastest 50 shows are selected based on the total net square footage growth and number of exhibiting companies between the years of 2003-2006. The judging team comprised of the editorial and research staff at Tradeshow Week. In addition to honoring the top 50 shows, TSW Fastest 50 will honor the fastest growing trade, association and consumer shows, as well as fastest growing show overall.

According to Tradeshow Week’s Top 50 list of shows, Reed Exhibitions has earned recognition not only for its G2E, but for two other market-leading events: The SHOT SHOW, an outdoor sports, shooting and hunting exhibition and conference, sponsored by the NSSF; and ISC West, the preeminent physical security event, sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA). Reed Exhibitions has also earned recognition as having the highest number of winners.

“The 2006 winners demonstrate the rapid growth and continued success of the exhibition industry,” explained Adam Schaffer, Publisher of Tradeshow Week.

“We are quite pleased to have attained this recognition again,” said Courtney Muller, Group Industry Vice President, Show Manager. “Such growth is the result of delivering premium value to our customers which is our commitment and focus for every event we produce.”
