G2E has denied my press pass request again.

Quote: Global Gaming Expo

Hi Michael,

Thank you for applying as press for Global Gaming Expo 2016. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide you with media credentials for this yearís show.

If you have registered erroneously as media and would like to register as a G2E attendee, please register at http://www.globalgamingexpo.com/Register-Now/.

Best,

Lovely Mempin | Account Coordinator



The industry gets a lot of mileage out of the free coverage I give to new games that I see there. Exhibitors pay to go there in part for the publicity generated to new games from people like me. But, as usual, I get no respect at all.

At this point a floor pass costs $225. I usually get a lot of offers for a free pass under a corporate sponsor as the show draws close, but none so far.

So, consider this a spot for people like me to beg for a free pass. I know the forum has a lot of starving game inventors who are probably in the same boat as me.

Please PM me if you can get me into the show.

The question for the poll is do you have/need a pass? (S.G. = Scientific Games)
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Why did they deny you?

I'm pretty positive you have more composite views than any other gambling publication.

They didn't say. It probably comes down to whether the person making the decision that year has heard of me. I get approved some years and denied others.

What I don't get is why some of my competitors like CasinoMeister seem to get approved every year? The press lounge is always full of them eating free food.

Oh, they would pay if I asked. As a good employee, I'm trying to save them the money and trouble.

Do you just accept it or get a little indignant with them? I am not a big fan of people asking "do you know who I am?" for better service or favors, but you really are someone that they should be giving a press pass.

Go on the offense...if you haven't already!

I'll hop on the wagon... Really not sure how they denied you. Did you provide them with any site statistics such as searches, views, members here, etc, etc? I don't get how they don't see you have a big audience and clearly should be able to enter as press. What a moronic move on their part.

I'd love to go to G2E too... When is it again?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I just accept it without argument. I'm a defensive kind of guy. I really would like to know how much smaller affiliate sites get approved though.

Wow that is crazy. There is no reason for them to deny you. I would definitely make a call or try to talk to a higher up.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT PART OF GWAE RADIO SHOW
