With more than 3,000 attendees, dozens of exhibitors, and a jam-packed conference schedule, SBC Summit North America can be overwhelming at times. Thankfully, there are several networking events that create opportunities for communities within the industry to connect.
Such is the case with the Tribal Gaming Breakfast Meetup sponsored by GeoComply. The Thursday morning breakfast returns for a second year to give those who are part of tribal gaming or have an interest in tribal gaming to connect. And if that weren’t appealing enough, there will be free coffee and breakfast.
Tribal gaming is an intergral part of the industry, with hundreds of tribes and over 500 gaming properties. They are also an important player in the growing sports betting industry. While Oklahoma will wait until 2024 to push for sports betting again, states like Minnesota are still pursuing a path to legalization that would include licenses for tribal properties.
“Exciting developments in digital gaming are sweeping across the country. SBC’s Tribal Gaming Breakfast Meetup is a great chance for us to listen and learn from tribal gaming leaders so we can better understand their view of the omnichannel gaming opportunity. This shared experience will better inform how we develop our solutions so we can continue to meet the demands and challenges facing the Indian gaming community, said GeoComply Senior Vice President of Government and Public Affairs John Pappas.
The breakfast will not be the only opportunity to learn more about tribal gaming. There will be an entire panel focused on tribal tech innovations as well as one comparing tribal and commercial operators. National Tribal Gaming Commissioners and Regulators Chairman Jamie Hummingbird and National Indian Gaming Commission Vice Chair Jeannie Hovland will also be a part of the Regulatory Roundtable event on Thursday afternoon.
Those interested in joining the breakfast can register online here. In order to attend, participants must be registered participants of the conference.
