Video exclusive: Jim Allen reviews 2020 on the GI Huddle

By Tim Poole

Seminole Gaming CEO and Hard Rock International chairman Jim Allen is the latest high-profile CEO to appear on the GI Huddle.

In our new episode, sponsored by Ainsworth, Allen reflects on a challenging 2020 with Gambling Insider and is candid about which areas of the business offer less encouragement than others.

On a more positive note, however, Allen also discusses the Guitar Hotel in Florida, which won the Property of the Year Award at the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas (where Seminole Gaming was voted Land-Based Operator of the Year, too).

Previewing 2021 both for the Guitar Hotel and other areas of the gaming and tourism sectors, the CEO is urging caution, although that does not necessarily mean there aren't signs of optimism for the industry.

So click play below to hear exactly what Allen had to say about a year like no other, as well as his thoughts on the future:
