G2E convergence in the LVBP

I wrote up some of my thoughts on the new tech stuff at G2E for the Las Vegas Business Press. Take a look:

The official theme of the Global Gaming Expo, held Oct. 3-6 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, was “innovation,”; but it could have been, more specifically, “convergence.”

As always, there were plenty of new products on display on the exhibit floor. International Game Technology alone demonstrated 400 new games for potential casino clients (and the occasional industry rival), and the other large manufacturers boasted similarly large offerings. But the real story was how the casino industry is converging, on several axes, with popular culture the latest technology, and, in the end, itself.

I’m mulling a piece right now that will consider the consequences of all that new tech. How will casinos use it, and how should they use it?
