The East Coast Gaming Congress & NexGen Gaming Forum (EGCG) announced Friday it is moving back to its original place on the gaming calendar “in response to overwhelming demand." The gaming industry event will be returning to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City on April 19-20.
The conference is the second oldest in the United States and of the largest outside Nevada, and has been a forum for hundreds of presentations by industry CEOs. Next year’s conference, the organization’s 26th event, will feature a wide range of invited industry leaders and top public officials who “will chart the future of gaming in all aspects,” ECGC said in a statement.
"For more than 25 years, ECGC has stood alone as the event that focuses on the highest level of leadership among gaming operators, suppliers, regulators, and elected officials, commanding speaking roles from six sitting and former governors of New Jersey, as well as all three CEOs who have led the American Gaming Association," organizers stated in advance to the next edition.
The event’s invited CEOs will provide individual keynote addresses, and the event itself is expected to pave the way for sponsorships, networking, professional development, and business-to-business discussions.
ECGC is organized and produced by Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law; Spectrum Gaming Group; and Sports Illustrated Sportsbook.
The latest edition of the forum took place this past September, where attendees, CEOs and industry experts shared their views on the new trends, and the impact of the pandemic in the gambling world.
The event was held against a backdrop of Atlantic City casino workers protesting outside of Hard Rock, demanding a bill banning indoor casino smoking to be passed in the state.
