18th Annual East Coast Gaming Congress Will Focus, Coordinate Both i-Gaming, Land-Based Casino Issues, May 19-20

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - The 18th Annual East Coast Gaming Congress, the gaming industry's longest-running conference, will take place May 19-20, 2014, at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, and promises to be an essential forum for examining and coordinating ideas regarding the future of online and land-based gaming.

"Coming challenges require a synchronized, holistic approach, and our conference has risen to meet that challenge. That coordinated approach is simply the best way to address i-gaming, land-based gaming and all gaming-related issues," said Michael Pollock, managing director of Spectrum Gaming Group, which co-founded the East Coast Gaming Congress back in 1997.

The East Coast Gaming Congress recognizes that attendees have a limited time and limited budget and has priced and scheduled this conference with this in mind. We designed our event to make sure that all the critical issues -- starting with Internet wagering -- are dealt with in the same forum. We bring all the leaders -- from government, suppliers and operators -- who will collectively set the policies and make the decisions, into one place where their ideas can be cross-pollinated and placed in the broadest context.

The East Coast Gaming Congress is the premier forum for gaming experts to share ideas, express concerns and articulate visions about the past, present and future of the gaming industry. Hot topics discussed at past congresses include market over-saturation, online gaming and the latest regulatory changes.

More than 600 gaming operators, equipment manufacturers, regulators, attorneys, architects, analysts, public officials, investors and other gaming-related professionals are attending the East Coast Gaming Congress. The full conference schedule and registration are available at www.ecgc.us. Early-bird registration savings are in effect through April 25.

Taking place at the spectacular Borgata Hotel & Casino, the East Coast Gaming Congress will provide attendees with valuable insight and education by those most knowledgeable about this evolving industry -- as well as outstanding opportunities for networking, professional development and business-to-business discussions.

The East Coast Gaming Congress & Hospitality Forum is organized and produced by Spectrum Gaming Group, an independent research and regulatory consulting firm, Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law, and SOSH Architects.
