|The 15th annual World Gaming Congress and Expo (WGCE) have created a new, free seminar especially for redundant industry workers. The move demonstrates WGCE’s ability to respond to the ever-changing need of the casino industry.|
WGCE takes place October 17-19, 2001, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. The seminar, which is called ‘Bouncing Back From Being Laid Off’, is to be presented on Wednesday October 17 between 1:00-3:00pm. Every casino industry worker is invited to attend the seminar, free of charge. There will be no pre-registration requirements and those interested need simply to go to Room 203 for admission.
Shelly Field, a nationally known career consultant, stress management expert and author of over twenty-five books, is to facilitate the seminar.
Brian Vargas, Senior Vice President trade shows for GEM Communications, producer of WGCE, commented, “clearly there is an urgent need to address the needs of the thousands of casino industry workers who have recently lost their jobs. To not act proactively on this crisis would be a disservice to these people and to the industry as a whole”. He continued, “We are very pleased to offer this seminar as a community service, free of charge, with no gimmicks of work books or services to buy. And let me give special thanks to Shelly Field for donating her services for this seminar”.
Field herself said, “Almost everyone has lost a job at one time or another. The recent events in the nation have affected everyone, with many in the casino industry losing their jobs. This seminar was developed especially for those in the casino industry and will help increase your chances of success”.
