This year's East Coast Gaming Congress features one of the strongest conference programs ever presented in the industry, culminating with the signature "Industry Leaders Forum."
The conference kicks off with an evening cocktail reception in the famous House of Blues Foundation Room. The following day, the conference features compelling sessions with Wall Street gaming analysts, prominent figures in nongaming development, New Jersey regulators and legislators, and operators, legislators and regulators from the East Coast.
The "Industry Leaders Forum" provides a unique format in which the CEOs address attendees on a key topic of their choice, then engage in a roundtable moderated by American Gaming Association President Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr. Participating in this special event are:
-- James Allen, CEO, Seminole Gaming
-- Peter M. Carlino, Chairman & CEO, Penn National Gaming
-- Gary Loveman, Chairman, CEO & President, Harrah's Entertainment
-- James B. Perry, CEO & President, Trump Entertainment Resorts

"The East Coast Gaming Congress is the premier forum outside of Nevada for the gaming industry," said Lloyd Levenson, CEO of conference co-producer Cooper Levenson law firm.
New this year, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in alliance with Spectrum Gaming Group will launch SIGMA. SIGMA is a nationwide certification program that teaches the skills needed to succeed as a manager in the gaming industry.
