On behalf of the GAMA Board of Directors, the GAMA Retail Division, and the GAMA staff, we want to thank all our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors for another successful GAMA Trade Show!
Thanks to the support of our sponsors and all attendees, we had yet another year of record-breaking numbers.
Attendance 2016 2017 Increase
Total Attendance 1400 1684 +20.2%
Unique Retail Stores 362 469 +29.5%
Unique Retail Badges 613 784 +27.8%
The seminar programming grew again this year. It’s especially exciting to see this portion of the show flourish as it’s really a great opportunity to gain valuable knowledge within the industry.
- The Premier Presentations were well attended, with rooms passing capacity much of the time.
- The New Store and Manufacturer Orientations continue to be a benefit to new attendees with over 75 new stores getting to know the GAMA Trade Show.
- The new addition of Monday Games Night was wildly successful and the room buzzed with activity throughout the entire night.
The exhibit hall had a great vibe and provided a great chance for networking and establishing new business contacts, which we know is important and exciting for our members and attendees!
We are looking forward to a fantastic GAMA 2018 in Reno! Up to two nights free, Wi-Fi included, larger seminar rooms, less smoke and all the resort amenities with no resort fee. Even with additional travel costs, Reno is still an overall better deal than Vegas. Double down and join us in Reno- March 12-16, 2018!
