Wednesday January 22,2014 : PROMINENT LEADERS TO DUKE IT OUT AT IGAMING NORTH AMERICA
Las Vegas Sands and Caesars Leaders to Debate the Future of Online Gaming in the US
The iGaming North America Conference 2014 will host what is sure to be a lively debate at a session titled "Is iGaming the Problem or the Solution?"
The session will feature Andy Abboud, vice president of Government Relations for Las Vegas Sands Corporation who will "expound upon his recent Congressional testimony regarding the risks of online gambling and the need for prohibition", organisers said.
Mitch Garber, chief executive officer and Director of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, will weigh in as a proponent of the legalization and regulation of iGaming as a necessary means to proactively address potential concerns.
The debate will be moderated by Steve Lipscomb, Founder of the World Poker Tour, and is expected to offer a 360 degree view of the industry in the US.
“Our goal for iGaming North America is to provide debates on a number of critical issues to the iGaming industry. Hearing these visionaries discuss the rationales for their differing views offers an appropriate launch to several of those debates which will be featured on the program," said Sue Schneider, Founder of eGaming Brokerage and a partner in the conference.
iGaming North America's 4th annual conference will be held March 19-21 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
