The 21st annual East Coast Gaming Congress will take place May 24-25, 2017, at Harrah’s Resort Casino Waterfront Conference Center. The popular two-day conference includes the new NexGen Gaming Forum, which will focus on emerging forms of gaming such as online, fantasy sports, e-sports, skill-based gaming, etc. “This conference was founded as an antidote to complacency, as a forum where new ideas can be put forth, examined and challenged,” said Michael Pollock, managing director of Spectrum Gaming Group, which co-founded the East Coast Gaming Congress in 1997. “That goal is more vital now than it ever was, as the pace of change continues to accelerate – and as new technologies and emerging generations create new challenges and demands.” ECGC recognizes that attendees have a limited time and limited budget and has priced and scheduled this conference with this in mind. We designed our event to make sure that all the critical issues are dealt with in the same forum. We bring all the leaders – from government, suppliers and operators – who will collectively set the policies and make the decisions, into one place where their ideas can be cross-pollenated and placed in the broadest context. Most of the ECGC & NexGen Gaming Forum panel discussions, presentations and roundtables will be provided in concurrent blocks, offering attendees the largest choice and greatest breadth of content in the conference’s history.

Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
