Sheldon Adelson Keynote Speaker at Global Gaming Expo

Adelson AssPoker Fuse – Once again this year the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, but this time their host, Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson, will also be a keynote speaker.

Adelson will be giving one of two keynote speeches at the trade show which runs from September 30 to October 2, and with an audience composed of the illuminati of the land based and online gambling industry, he is expected to expound on his opposition to online poker in the US.

The Coalition to Stop Internet Gaming (CSIG) was established last November to lobby against online gambling. It has been funded by Adelson and the Las Vegas Sands to the tune of $460,000 in its first six months.

The other keynote speaker will be Steve Wynn, Chairman of Wynn Resorts Ltd, a friend of Adelson, and a convert to his opinions on online gambling.
