With legislators in jurisdictions across the Midwest region ponder ways to optimize gaming revenues for their stats, it’s worth noting the real-world opportunity for gaming and the risks associated with changes in gaming taxation, regulations and supply. This will be the topic of a session at the Midwest Gaming Summit entitled Midwest Gaming by the Numbers, which will be moderated by Alex Picou, Managing Director and Senior Banker, J.P. Morgan Private Banking.

Picou will lead a lively question-and-answer discussion featuring the following gaming analysts:

  • Dennis Farrell, Senior Casino Debt Analyst, Wells Fargo Securities
  • John Kempf, Managing Director, RBC Capital Markets
  • Brian T. McGill, Managing Director, Casino Gaming & Lodging, Janney Montgomery Scott
  • Matt Sodl, Managing Director, Innovation Capital

Among the topics to be covered will be the current Midwest supply and demand picture, which operators are best positioned for financial success, an impact assessment of the latest legislative and regulatory changes and how much room there is for growth going forward.
