AMERICAN GAMING ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT AND CEO GEOFF FREEMAN TO DELIVER KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT 19TH ANNUAL EAST COAST GAMING CONGRESS

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (May 5, 2015) – American Gaming Association president and CEO Geoff Freeman will deliver the Luncheon Keynote Address at the 19th annual East Coast Gaming Congress & iGaming Institute on May 28, 2015, at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

In his role as chief executive of the AGA, Freeman is the leading advocate for the casino gaming industry and is responsible for positioning the association to address regulatory, political and educational challenges and opportunities. 

"The East Coast Gaming Congress (ECGC) provides a great opportunity for the gaming industry to coalesce on a wide range of issues during their 19th annual meeting in Atlantic City,” said Freeman. “I look forward to sharing some of the exciting initiatives that the American Gaming Association (AGA) is currently working on to build an appreciated, innovative and inclusive gaming industry.”

Michael Pollock, managing director of conference co-producer Spectrum Gaming Group added, “For 19 years, this conference has served as an essential forum for thoughtful leaders to put forth new ideas, and lay out clear visions. Geoff Freeman carries the tradition forward. His vision – and his views – matter.”

ECGC & iGaming Institute brings prominent industry leaders – from industry, government, Wall Street, law and other sectors – who collectively set the policies and make the critical decisions into one forum where their ideas can be cross-pollinated and placed in the broadest context. With the many forms of legalized gambling beginning to converge – from land-based casinos to Internet gaming to lotteries – ECGC & iGaming Institute provides attendees with the critical insights necessary to understand where, when and how the gaming will be reshaped.

More than 600 gaming operators, equipment manufacturers, regulators, attorneys, architects, analysts, public officials, investors and other gaming-related professionals are expected to attend ECGC & iGaming Institute. The full conference schedule and registration are available at www.ecgc.us.

Taking place at the spectacular Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa, ECGC & iGaming Institute provides attendees with not only valuable insight and education by those most knowledgeable about this evolving industry, but also outstanding opportunities for networking, professional development and business-to-business discussions.

The iGaming Institute launches the conference on May 27, followed by the always popular and well-attended Welcome Reception.
