BingoWorld set for South Point

Dec 10, 2007 3:20 AM

Building on a successful 2007 edition, BingoWorld Conference & Expo returns to the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa, March 4-6, 2008. The world’s largest bingo conference and trade show, which experienced double-digit growth in 2007, is poised to attract an even stronger international crowd for its 12th renewal.

"The 2008 edition of BingoWorld promises to be another winner, with an expanded international program, in-depth sessions for tribal and charitable bingo operators, and hands-on workshops for marketing and human resources specialists," said Charles Anderer, Senior Events Manager for BNP Media Gaming Group, the show’s producer. "We are happy to be back at South Point, which is a wonderful facility offering an endless array of amenities and beautiful rooms for our attendees at a very reasonable rate."

One of the highlights of the three-day conference is Bingo Mexico & Americas on March 4, which will focus on some of the world’s most vibrant and fastest growing bingo markets. The inaugural Bingo Mexico debuted to a packed house in 2007, and for 2008 the program will expand its view throughout Latin America. Simultaneous translation in English and Spanish will be provided, and it promises to be a uniquely international educational and networking event. Bingo Mexico & Americas is co-presented with Latin American gaming experts Harrison & Montoya Associates.

Also on March 4 is "Sellin’ Paper and Callin’ Balls," a customer service workshop that has attracted standing-room only crowds for presenter Steve Browne of Raving Consulting during its first two years.

After a welcome reception the evening of March 4, the main BingoWorld conference program is set for March 5, followed by Bingo University on March 6, intensive workshops that debuted with great success in 2007.
