Tech Summit to return to Vegas

Mar 23, 2004 5:36 AM

Gaming Technology Summit (GTS), which debuted to rave reviews last year, returns to the Green Valley Ranch Station, May 25-26.

Last year’s inaugural GTS was a resounding success, drawing more than 300 gaming and technology professionals from across North America.

The Summit was created to address the critical role of technology throughout casino hotels and the demands it places on gaming professionals to learn new skills, integrate systems and make hardware and software investment decisions.

As it did last year, the Summit will bring together gaming industry professionals to network, learn about new technologies and their applications in the industry, and confer about the successes and failures of these technologies.

Gary Loveman, CEO of Harrah’s Entertainment, will be the featured keynote speaker, providing the remarks at the opening day general session.

Glenn Bonner, CIO (chief information officer) of MGM MIRAGE, will provide the luncheon keynote address on May 25; and Bob Boughner, CEO of the Borgata in Atlantic City, will provide the keynote address on May 26.

In addition, the Summit will offer a 27-seminar program, which will address technology in three tracks: strategy, operations and technology.

The programs are expected to provide important information to date processing professionals, gaming executives, and operation personnel from key areas including casino, hotel, marketing, human resources, food and beverage and finance.

The Summit sessions are unique among gaming conferences in that most of them will be led by one or two knowledgeable professionals, allowing the presenters more time to delve deeper into issues and solutions than is possible with a more traditional speaker/panelist format.

The sessions will include presenters with a diverse cross-section of leading gaming manufacturers, operators, and technology and information companies.

Registration for the Gaming Technology Summit is now available at gametechsummit.com.
