GSA at G2E 2014: Creating the Standards That Drive the Gaming Industry

GSA Holds Annual Meeting During G2E

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - For more than 16 years, the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) has been creating standards for the benefit of the gaming industry. At the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2014, GSA will highlight its award-winning standards that are being implemented around the world, and also speak to its mission of continual standards development.

GSA will be in booth #2709 at G2E.

GSA has a wealth of completed standards. GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, "We have many established standards that are in use around the world. In fact, the G2E tradeshow floor will be populated with games and systems built on GSA standards to deliver the interoperability operators demand. However, we are never satisfied, and we will continue to develop and refine standards to best suit the industry's critical business and development needs."

GSA's major focus over the last year has been to identify the need of standards to support the online gaming community. Since then the Online Gaming Committee (OGC) have moved forward at a rapid pace and made significant progress.

"Our progress on the online gaming standard is moving ahead quickly. We promised the industry that we would make progress on this important standard, and we have met each milestone. We expect to release the initial draft of the 3rd Party Interface standard to our membership for review in the next few weeks," said Ethan Tower, GSA's Protocol Director.

GSA will also hold its annual meeting during G2E on Wednesday, October 1 at 1:00 p.m. in the Casanova Room 604 in the Sands Convention Center. Bruce Rowe, President of Renaissance Casino Solutions, will present the very latest on the worldwide success of the current GSA standards with "Creating Standards that Drive the Industry." Dr. Gavin Clarkson, Professor at New Mexico State University, will address "The State of Adoption of GSA Standards."

This important event is free and open to the public, and registration is required. Visit www.gamingstandards.com to reserve your place.

GSA membership continues to grow in all aspects of the gaming industry and from all corners of the globe. Only GSA members can participate in standards development. GSA membership has many benefits, and there is a level of membership to meet any organization's size, budget and business goals. GSA representatives can help you decide which level is best for you.
