The two executives will share the stage with American Gaming Association President and CEO Bill Miller on Oct. 12, according to a G2E statement on Friday. Morgan, former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and former board member of Caesars Entertainment, will lead a discussion on the changing relationship between sports and gaming.

Nardini, a former chief marketing officer at AOL, Yahoo and Microsoft, will speak with Miller about Barstool’s relationship with Penn Entertainment, which now owns 100% of the Gen Z and Millennial-focused sports media outlet, and how Barstool interacts with fans.

The G2E Main Stage has a heritage of showcasing dynamic leaders and inspiring conversations, and this year is no different,” Miller said in a statement. “I look forward to welcoming the global gaming community to G2E 2022 with a vibrant exhibit hall, pre-pandemic attendee demand and a compelling conference program.”

G2E takes place October 10-13 at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.

Also announced on Friday, Indian Gaming Association President Ernie Stevens will host a discussion on tribal gaming on the opening day of the expo, which also coincides with Indigenous Peoples Day.

Joining Stevens on stage will be former United States Senator from Colorado Ben Nighthorse Campbell, the last Native American elected to the Senate; Reid D. Milanovich, President of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians; and the Mille Lacs Band of Melanie Benjamin Ojibway Indians.
