|Gaming professionals from more than 70 countries and tribal nations have registered in their thousands for this years World Gaming Congress and Expo (WGCE). The figures for registration now show a 27 percent increase from last year, when the WGCE played host to 28,000 people from 103 countries.|
The WGCE, which will be held Oct 17th- 19th at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, is an industry conference for the gambling fraternity, which includes over 80 seminars and panel discussions and three keynote addresses.
Speakers at the event will include casino mogul Steve Wynn and award winning environmentalist Erin Brockovich.
“We are thrilled with the early response WGCE has received from gaming professionals around the world,” said Brian Vargas, Sr. Vice President Trade Shows for GEM Communications, who run the WGCE. “The strong registration numbers are especially gratifying in light of the slowing economy and the growing number of gaming-related events springing up around the globe.”
