The GPI American Poker Awards and Conference are coming back to Beverly Hills in February, 2017

The 3rd Annual GPI American Poker Awards are nearly back again, celebrating the game’s brightest stars, breakout players, as well as standout industry influencers and media persons throughout the Americas. With 2016 marking another dynamic year for poker’s growth we’re excited to reward every facet of the poker world which has worked together to ensure the game keeps evolving.

This years awards will continue many of the same categories begun through the first two iterations of the awards – though its important to note that specific nominees and awards have not yet been selected. This said, all honors will be chosen by the same voting process: a nomination panel of 70+ people from the industry, media and players community will vote through January to set a final shortlist of nominees that will be released at the beginning of February. A final jury will then vote for the winners on the day of the ceremony. As per tradition the GPI Player of the Year will also be rewarded on that day.

Hosted at the Sofitel Hotel in central Beverly Hills, California the American Poker Awards will again be preceded by it’s namesake Conference. The American Poker conference is set to run from 2 PM until 6 PM on February 23rd, 2017 – the day of the Awards – with for separate panels designed with players’ needs, industry collaboration in mind & ‘town hall’ formats to ensure every constituency from the American poker landscape can connect and work together moving forward into the new year.
