The 10th Florida Gaming Congress will be the must-attend conference for all gaming-related professionals to examine the status and outlook of one of the most dynamic gaming jurisdictions in the country.

Michael Pollock, Managing Director of Spectrum Gaming Group.


The Florida Gaming Congress, the premier forum for professionals involved with the state’s rapidly expanding gaming industry, will take place January 6-7, 2016, at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, FL.

Now in its 10th 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.
