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.
