Has anyone heard from Brent aka mrsuit31 lately? I've noticed his games are no longer available at WOO. Now I see his Money$uit31 website is offline. This thread seems to contain his last post.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I hope won't mind me saying that he asked me to take the demos off WoO. That is as far as I'll take it.

Can anyone give me an update on the June conference? Is it still happening?

Yes it is. He recently (~2 weeks ago) enlisted Bear River Casino + Resort as the field trial location for the best new table games winner, I assume that means everything is still as planned...

Any past attendees who can tell me what the foot traffic is like during the conference itself? I am a first time exhibitor and planning to hire a dealer for the opening reception, but debating whether it is necessary for the rest of the conference, or if the booths typically just get mild traffic during session breaks? Any thoughts from past years...?

Obviously, the booths are close to dead while sessions are happening.

But the breaks, as well as the reception, is time to check the booths, grab a bite / drink, and general networking.

While there are some attendees that only go for the opening reception, I think most go for the entire duration.

Additionally, attendees are encouraged to visit each booth and try every game. They need to get their bingo card stamped at every game booth to qualify for the raffle prizes. I also think the reception time tends to be less of a booth visit time, and more of a catching up with acquaintances time.

So, do you need a dealer each day? Frankly, if you think you need one for the reception, you probably need one each day. But do you really need, specifically, a dealer? Or do you just need another person in your booth, ready to demo the game while you talk about it?

That could be anybody. Even one of us. Not that I'm volunteering, but I'm not saying I wouldn't be interested either.

Very informative! I'd already decided against a dedicated dealer myself in favor of someone coming along with me to operate, but it's nice to have an idea of what that traffic will look like. Exciting stuff!

I am wondering what the odds are that this conference will not happen (again).

Well at this point cases in Vegas are very low, and were low in June last year as well. That combined with the minimized state restrictions compared to last year and even to February this year, seems like for better or worse, everyone is done hiding from COVID at least as far as events and indoor activities go. Plus many people (myself included) have gotten up to two vaccinations plus a booster, so unless there's a significant unexpected spike or new variant, it's unlikely to be pushed again.

I'm more interested in when the next conference will be, given the timeline. Would be unfortunate for it to be November of next year as was originally scheduled, only because that would be a long time to wait, but having it in June is already uncomfortable just due to the heat. Maybe February again.

According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, there have been only three field trials since June and the last one was in November. Is it possible that the pathway to business success, for the little guy, in inventing new table games is over? The market for doing math on such games has certainly dried up, except for those who do it for free.

I'm not saying this conference has no value for the typical attendee, but I wouldn't recommend paying to exhibit a game there any longer.
