Las Vegas, NV (July 24, 2014) — WhiteSand Gaming will allow all casino employees to attend the Gaming Technology Summit free of charge this November. 

“We feel very strongly that this important educational event and trade show should be available to everyone in our industry,” said Saverio Scheri, president and CEO of WhiteSand Gaming. “With so many conferences, it’s hard to allocate budget dollars to attend more than one or two.”

The Gaming Technology Forum, a conference and trade show now in its 12th year, will be held November 3-5 at the Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas.  The conference provides workshops and 27 different sessions that deal with technology in the gaming industry and the impact on marketing, operations, online gaming, finance and analysis.  The trade show floor is dedicated to innovative technology used in the gaming industry as well as other industries that apply to gaming.

Registration is normally $995 but attendees that pre-register and present a valid casino employee ID badge will be admitted free of charge.  Vendors and non-casino employees will still be required to meet the registration payment requirements.

“We realize the fee waiver will dramatically increase our attendance, but we know Green Valley Ranch is well suited to handle the numbers.  We’re excited and looking forward to a trade show floor that will buzz with activity, as well as informative and interactive conference sessions that will focus on innovative technology solutions for the entire casino resort,” said Scheri.

Attendance is expected to rise dramatically to between 500 - 600 IT leaders from across the US and around the globe.

You must register by October 31 and present a valid casino employee ID at the time they pick up their registration packet. Registrations after October 31 and attendees without a valid casino employee ID must pay the full registration fee. No exceptions. Visit www.gamingtechnologyforum.com to register now!
