Now in its 8th year, the Florida Gaming Congress will continue to spotlight current trends and future developments concerning all aspects of legal gambling throughout the state. Throughout the conference, an array of speakers with varying viewpoints and expertise will shed light on gaming and tourism-related issues that are being debated from Tallahassee to Miami. Speakers from state and local government, industry, the legal profession, professional associations, and academia will put forth ideas, express concerns and respond to proposals about the future of gaming and tourism in Florida.

The Florida Gaming Congress, produced by Spectrum Gaming Group, 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 Florida’s gaming industry. The Congress provides outstanding opportunities for networking, professional development and business-to-business discussions.
