Las Vegas Sands & Caesars Leaders to Debate Future of Online Gaming in the US
From March 19-21, iGaming North America will host its fourth annual conference at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. The conference, which is designed to introduce the land-based gaming businesses of North America to the global iGaming industry, will kick off with their annual Visionaries Session, which will feature two titans of the industry — Andy Abboud, Vice President of Government Relations for Las Vegas Sands Corporation, and Mitch Garber, CEO and Director of Caesars Interactive Entertainment — discussing the question “Is iGaming the Problem or the Solution?”
“Our goal for iGaming North America is to provide debates on a number of critical issues to the iGaming industry. Hearing these visionaries discuss the rationales for their differing views offers an appropriate launch to several of those debates which will be featured on the program,” commented Sue Schneider, Founder of eGaming Brokerage and a partner in the conference.
Abboud recently testified in front of Congress regarding the risks of online gambling and the need for prohibition, sentiments echoed by his boss Sheldon Adelson. Meanwhile, Garber will weigh in as a proponent of the legalization and regulation of iGaming as a necessary means to proactively address potential concerns.
Steve Lipscomb, Founder of the World Poker Tour, will moderate the lively debate.
