Regulators gathered in Las Vegas for GLI's 10th annual North American Roundtable
March 3, 2011
For the past decade, Gaming Laboratories International has produced global roundtables, where regulators from the 455 jurisdictions that GLI serves are invited to come together for intense, in-depth training. GLI this week celebrated its 10th North American Roundtable with a call to regulators to “Find Your Seat, Find Your Future.” More than 200 regulators were expected to attend the conference held Wednesday and Thursday at the Treasure Island Casino & Resort in Las Vegas. Presented by the company’s unique training program, GLI University, the event featured a stellar lineup of speakers comprised of the industry’s leading experts. \ “We are thrilled with the support we receive from regulators across the entire continent for this Roundtable,” said GLI President and CEO James R. Maida. “We plan months in advance to ensure that we are delivering the absolutely most critical information and the most relevant topics, and I am very confident that attendees will receive a tremendous learning benefit from this year’s event.” Among the timely topics slated at this year’s roundtable were “Interactive Gaming: The Evolution Continues,” “Adaptive/Social Networking: Gaming in Cyberspace,” “Policy Meets New Technology: What’s the Next Step,” “Responsible Gaming: New Technology, New Changes,” “Security Insights: Identifying Your Weakest Link,” “Internet/Intranet Gaming: The Future is Now” and “The Political Scene in 2011: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.” In addition to the presentations at Treasure Island, regulators also had the opportunity for a close-up tour of GLI’s Las Vegas lab and in-depth training modules at the lab. GLI’s annual Roundtable is a one-of-a-kind event in the gaming industry, where regulators gather to learn about the latest technological developments and their potential regulatory impact, and to openly discuss regulations with one another in a private setting. GLI offers the conference to regulators free of charge. Last year’s event drew more than 200 regulators from across North America. The event is part of the company’s GLI University, which offers continuing education and training to regulators around the world. Each year, GLI produces roundtable events around the globe. GLI University will stage its European Regulators Roundtable in April, and expects to announce plans for its Latin American Roundtable later this year. For more than 20 years, Gaming Laboratories International, LLC has been providing independent testing, inspection and certification services to the gaming industry.
