Announcing her exit is the senior vice president of Reed Exhibitions, an events organizer, and Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the premier tradeshow and conference events for the international gaming entertainment industry.
Employed at Reed Exhibitions for nearly 20 years, Courtney Muller is stepping down from her post to spend more time with her family.
Having led the Reed Exhibitions team at Global Gaming Expo for the past 10 years, Muller has seen the show through good times and bad, finishing her final days with the recent successful completion of G2E 2013.
“I heard a lot of people saying this was the best G2E yet,” said Muller. “I couldn’t be happier to be leaving on such a high note.”
Speaking with Global Gaming Business Publisher Roger Gros about her resignation, Muller expressed her appreciation of the gaming industry.
“It’s very, very bittersweet,” said Muller. “It’s an industry full of really, really smart and great people, and it’s been fantastic.”
Muller plans on completing this year’s show before her departure, and she wishes to return to the gaming industry in the future.
“[Reed Exhibitions has] very close partnerships with AGA, the American Gaming Association, so we work very closely with them, and the AGA is obviously in touch with their board,” said Muller. “Everyone from the exhibitor to someone who speaks at the conference to someone who sits on our conference advisory board – they all played a part in making [G2E] great, and that’s why we really feel this show is by the industry, for the industry.”
Reed Exhibitions will not be replacing Muller. Mike Johnson, industry vice president, G2E and G2E Asia, will continue to run all G2E events.
