The Southern Gaming Summit (“SGS”) announced January 9, 2019, that Sara Slane would be the keynote speaker for Day 2 of the SGS.  In the press release issued by the Mississippi Gaming & Hospitality Association it praised Ms. Slane’s accomplishments:

“As a key industry strategist and spokesperson, Slane has helped enhance the gaming industry’s reputation and build favorable perceptions among critical stakeholders, including regulators, legislators, the media, and the broader public. Most recently, Slane managed the most important advocacy victory in AGA history, a campaign to repeal the federal ban on sports betting known as the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Slane was integral to planning the campaign’s strategy and leading key aspects, including building alliances with sports leagues and policymakers; handling the association’s day-to-day grassroots and communications efforts; and overseeing the development of original research that demonstrated the overwhelming support for legal, regulated sports betting among fans and quantified the economic opportunities for American businesses. Slane and AGA’s efforts culminated in the 14 May 2018 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn PASPA and clear the way for the gaming industry to offer sports betting under state regulation.”

Larry Gregory, the executive director of the Mississippi Gaming & Hospitality Association, said: “We’re very excited that Ms. Slane will be attending our conference as a keynote speaker. As our industry’s foremost expert on sports betting, she’ll bring key insights and knowledge that will be of interest to, and benefit, all of our attendees.”  The SGS will be held May 7-9, 2019, in Biloxi, MS.  It will include an opening golf tournament  and Welcome Reception at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on May 7.  On May 8, the day will include four educational sessions and the Global Gaming Women Luncheon.  The SGS will close on May 9 with another six educational sessions and will be followed by the Hall of Fame Gala for the Mississippi Gaming Hall of Fame.  More information and registration can be found at http://www.sgsummit.com/
