Mid-America Gaming Congress

Spectrum Gaming Group and Dickinson Wright will host the inaugural Mid-America Gaming Congress, April 8-9, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus in Columbus, OH. Attendees will include state legislators, gaming regulators, tribal and commercial gaming operators, and Internet gaming experts from around the world.

The Mid-America Gaming Congress will address the critical issues facing the gaming industry in the Midwestern United States. The Congress kicks off with a welcome reception on the evening of April 8. The following day, industry experts will explore topics such as:

  • Competition: What is happening with gaming expansion and how will it play out?  Where is there saturation and where is there opportunity?
  • Internet Gaming: What can be learned from jurisdictions where Internet gaming is currently legal?  What can be expected in the short term and in the long term?
  • Exploring Other Gaming Options:  What are the various forms of non-casino, non-lottery gambling and other for-money games that are available to states?  Where are the success stories – and the failures?
  • Regulatory: As states crave more gaming revenue, are regulations and regulators becoming more relaxed?  To what extent is there – or should there be – cooperation among regulators in different states?
  • Wall Street: Which Mid-America gaming markets have the best near-term outlooks?  Which gaming operators are best positioned for growth?

The Mid-America Gaming Congress is a must-attend event for corporate executives, gaming operators, elected officials, regulators, vendors, developers, investors, analysts, and anyone else who is — or wishes to be — involved in the future of gaming in the growing mid-western market. The Congress provides outstanding opportunities for networking, professional development and business-to-business discussions.
