GLI hosts North American Regulators Roundtable in Las Vegas

11 March 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) proudly hosted its 16th annual North American Regulators Roundtable, welcoming over 200 regulators from 31 jurisdictions across North America and the Caribbean. This year’s theme, “Strategically Embracing Innovation,” was fitting, with discussions centered on topics like iGaming and fantasy sports.

GLI President & CEO James Maida said, “We are honored by the support that our regulator clients provide for our Regulators Roundtables. GLI is proud to host networking and learning opportunities for our guests. Every aspect of our 16th annual North American Regulators Roundtable was a success – the keynote addresses, the various high-level sessions, and the brand new event mobile application.”

The annual, two-day event, held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, is a unique opportunity for regulators to absorb high-level information from thought-leaders and discuss or share ideas about various topics with their peers.

Brand new to this year’s Regulators Roundtable was the event mobile application, accessible to attendees via their smart phones. Regulators were encouraged to use the application for submitting questions throughout the event, which were answered either during respective sessions or the “What’s On Your Mind? An Interactive Forum,” also new to the event.

Other popular sessions included “Detecting Cheaters and Minimizing Fraud,” which featured live demonstrations of techniques thieves use to gain access to sensitive information and compromise the integrity of a gaming operation; and “What is the Call for Fantasy Sports?”, which opened up discussion about Daily Fantasy Sports and the legal and policy issues related to the debate.

The exciting keynote address was delivered by Lt. Colonel Kevin Sweeney, a motivational speaker, author and decorated combat pilot. Sweeney’s presentation, “Pressure Cooker Confidence: How To Lead When the Heat Is On,” focused on his life or death experience as a pilot during a night combat mission and allowed the audience to mentally live through the challenges he faced.

Concluding this year’s event, we were pleased to announce that next year’s Regulators Roundtable will be held March 15 and 16, 2017 at Luxor Las Vegas. GLI will produce the Latin American Regulators Roundtable August 24 and 25, 2016 in Curacao. The North American Regulators Roundtable was presented free of charge to regulators.
