The ECGC recognizes attendees have limited time & budget, and priced & scheduled this conference with these factors in mind. This event ensures all critical issues are covered within the same forum.

Day 1
Joe Pappano, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Vantiv Entertainment Solutions
The casino industry has historically used other sports to bring patrons to the casinos from hosting fantasy football drafts, to sponsoring boxing matches and hosting events around the Super Bowl or March Madness. eSports are extremely popular among Millennials and casinos are struggling to find methods to capitalize on this opportunity. In this panel, we will discuss the various methods casinos can get involved in eSports.
After the consumer advertising blitz of Fall 2015 and the ensuing state-by-state fight for legalization and/or regulation, daily fantasy sports operators face an uncertain outlook. Meanwhile, the American Gaming Association is pushing to legalize sports betting beyond its Nevada base. What is the outlook for both of these forms of sports betting ... and could they coexist if both were offered legally across the country? How much of a game changer would legalized sports betting be?
As casinos struggle with the generational shift to Generation X and Millennials, casinos must learn to compete with mobile and social games. In this panel, we discuss the use of new digital gaming formats to attract the casino customer of the future.
