In light of 2020’s events, the creators of the Executive Development Program (EDP) adjusted the format of the 2020 program to ensure the safety and health of all EDP students, faculty, and the global gaming community at large.

In November 2020, the International Gaming Institute, along with colleagues from the University of Nevada, Reno College of Business and Extended Studies, presented the first-ever “EDP Presents: All the Crises, All the Time.” This weeklong, live, entirely online experience, spanned multiple time zones and brought together today’s leaders in crisis management to teach a future generation. The premise behind the program: if something like a pandemic can happen in 2020, another disaster is likely looming around the corner. By the nature of our industry, hospitality and gaming professionals not only need to be prepared for “the next COVID,” but they are also uniquely positioned to provide leadership, insights, and ideas to other industries.
