The winners of this year's Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas will be announced one week from today, with all preparations now in place for this year's luncheon ceremony.
More than 500 industry professionals will be present at the Sands Expo Convention Center on Monday 14 October to see the winners confirmed in all 12 categories, in an event to kick off the G2E show.
Now in their sixth year, the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas have quickly become the most trusted awards in the industry, and being nominated is a clear sign that an industry company belongs among the world's best.
Proceedings for this year's show will begin at 12pm in the Bellini room, where lunch will be served before the official presentation gets underway.
The winners have been decided by an expert panel of 100 Judges, and the voting process was independently adjudicated by KPMG Isle of Man.
Aristocrat and Scientific Games were the standout winners at last year's ceremony, taking home five Awards between them.
Julian Perry, Gambling Insider COO, said: "I can't wait to get going on this year's ceremony, and it will be great to once again see so many of the industry's biggest names in the same room at the same time.
"The fact we had so many Judges voting this year is testament to how many important executives want to be a part of the Awards."
All nominations in all categories are detailed in this year's Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas Shortlist magazine, which is available here and will be distributed in print at G2E.
The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas are powered by Gambling Insider and the Lead Partner is BetConstruct.
