The long-awaited comeback of the Global Gaming Expo, which was postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, is now set for October 4–7 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas. Since announcing that it would be hosted in person, the G2E 2021 staff has been upgrading its health and safety standards to keep up with the constantly changing federal, state, and venue laws on the subject.
As the gaming community, including professionals, fans, and reputable gaming operators from around the world, prepares to meet in Las Vegas for the Global Gaming Expo, Considering the health and safety of so many people, the event organizers have released a health and safety update for attendees, describing it as the event’s “top concern” in a new press release – Face masks are required for all participants during the four-day event.
This decision was made due to the resurgence of COVID cases in Nevada, and organizers do not want this event to become a hub-spreader of the coronavirus, which is why strict rules and regulations have been adopted to ensure the event’s flawless operation. G2E said on Wednesday that all participants would be obliged to wear face covers during the four-day event, in accordance with Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s emergency directive issued in July.
Face covering will not be the only precaution taken by the event crew; they will also be considering protocols that may be enforced at the conference, including advice from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. To be admitted to the G2E, attendees, exhibitors, journalists, personnel, and other event participants may be asked to produce valid proof of immunizations or a negative COVID-19 test.
In July, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued an emergency directive requiring everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, to wear a mask indoors in public places in counties with substantial or high transmission rates, including Las Vegas.
We understand that providing a safe atmosphere in which to conduct business is critical to the show’s success, adds the event organizer.
As a result, it should be obvious that if you are found without a mask in this event, you will be denied access, making masks a must for everyone attending the expo.
In the world of gaming, G2E is a hugely prominent and exciting event. Thousands of people gather to hear from gaming experts and get cutting-edge information on how to stay ahead in the industry. G2E has also worked with The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo & Convention Center to implement cleaning and sanitization standards that meet or exceed the CDC’s recommendations, and the layout has been adjusted to implement directional and distance markings.
As there are still two months until the event, any new information will be posted on the G2E health and safety page if you are interested.
