Reading time 1:52 min

The 25th Annual East Coast Gaming Congress & NexGen Gaming Forum (ECGC), which will be held on September 21-23 at Hard Rock Atlantic City, will discuss the challenges regulators face in keeping up with new technology. A panel of state gaming regulators will discuss the issue at the yearly summit.

"There is a continuous influx of new games, new ways to play those games, and new ways to transact money, and gaming operators and suppliers want to be able to use the new technology right away. Ultimately, state gaming regulators determine whether – or how fast – such technology can be offered to the consumer," the organizers said when explaining the importance of this topic. 

The panel will tackle questions such as "Are the regulators doing this quickly enough?" or "Do they have the physical and human resources needed to keep pace in the rapidly evolving gaming industry?"

Cyrus Pitre, Chief Enforcement Counsel of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, will moderate "State Regulators: Keeping Their Promise to Keep Pace?", a panel discussion that will include:

  • Stephen Cook, Chief Counsel, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board
  • Cathy Judd-Stein, Chair, Massachusetts Gaming Commission
  • John Martin, Executive Director, Maryland Lottery
  • David Rebuck, Director, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement
  • June E. Taylor, Chair, Ohio Casino Control Commission

The conference will kick off with an opening reception on Wednesday, additionally, on Thursday evening there will be a networking cocktail party. The event will feature three keynote addresses and several panel discussions on issues facing the industry, including:

  • Sports Betting: Which Model is Working Best?
  • Is Gaming Growing Responsibly?
  • The Best Things in Gaming Right Now Are …
  • The Northeast Cauldron
  • Whither Igaming?
  • Creating One Industry: Lotteries, Gaming

Phil Murphy

Last month, the event's organizers confirmed that New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will deliver a luncheon keynote at the congress. This will mark the fourth time that Murphy addresses the conference. 

The full two-day conference schedule and registration is available online. Group discounts and sponsorship opportunities are also available. ECGC is organized and produced by Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law, Spectrum Gaming GroupEsports Entertainment Group, and Sports Illustrated Sportsbook
