Today, our team is going to give a quick breakdown of what to expect for this year’s conference. If you can’t make the trip to Atlantic City, don’t sweat it! We’ll be giving a recap of this year’s event after it concludes.
What is the Atlantic City Gambling Conference?
The Atlantic City Gambling Conference, or perhaps more commonly known as the East Coast Gaming Congress, is an annual conference that focuses on emerging forms of online gambling, fantasy sports, e-sports, and more. It’s one of the most popular gaming meetups in the country. This year’s conference takes place at Harrah’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino.
From June 12th to the 13th, many of the iGaming industry’s top experts will be speaking on the current industry trends. Throughout both days, there are speeches, Q&A’s, networking sessions, and even a cocktail hour. For those in the online gambling industry, it’s one of the best ways to learn more about where the gambling market is heading.
This is the second-longest running gambling conference in the country. Last year’s event was hugely successful. Even the Governor of New Jersey, Phil Murphy, attended! 2019’s conference is shaping up to be just as good.
