(Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation hospitality software solutions and services, today announced that Ramesh Srinivasan, President and CEO, and Robert Rebholz, Director of Product Management, will be featured on industry panels at the upcoming Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas.
Mr. Srinivasan will be a featured panelist for the: ‘Hand in Hand - How Gaming and Non-Gaming Work Together” session, an open forum discussion centered on helping operators understand the big picture and why gaming and resort teams need to be in sync to accommodate the changing demands of guests and support business growth. The Panel will be moderated by Bob Boughner, Senior Partner, Global Market Advisors, and Mr. Srinivasan will be joined by Holly Gagnon, President & CEO, Seneca Gaming Corporation, Thomas Soukup, Chief Systems Product Officer, Konami Gaming, Inc., and Alan Feldman, Executive V.P., MGM Resorts International.

Srinivasan was appointed president and chief executive officer at Agilysys in January 2017. He is an accomplished CEO with demonstrated leadership success in gaming technology and enterprise software, and brings an impressive track record of sustainable long-term growth and significant increases in shareholder value.
“The gaming industry’s growth story is not only in gaming spend, but also in the increasing non-gaming spend per visitor”, says Srinivasan. “Operators want to know how to collect and use the right information, both to ensure that the property maximizes profitability from each guest visit and to deliver a memorable experience.”
Mr. Rebholz will be a panelist in the: ‘Extraordinary Customer Experiences - There's an App for That’ session, to discuss the increasing reliance on mobile technology and how operators can turn a mobile phone into a revenue generating device.

He will share his insights on how to leverage the latest technologies to enhance the customer experience beyond the casino floor and beyond the walls of the resort, how to provide a personalized and engaging strategy to keep the conversation going, and discuss the tools operators need to maximize convenience for customers and the hospitality tech solutions that will help.
