It’s really important for us to learn and understand and to make good business decisions based on what we think legislation should reflect or what regulation should say, and this kind of conference allows someone like me or my staff in just a couple of days, in one location, at relatively very little expense as opposed to visiting them all, get a great deal of information.
Michael Jones, Superintendent, Illinois Lottery

GiGse gets better and better every year. The quality of the line-up of speakers was unparalleled.

What a great show. The room was packed and there was a strong networking presence much of the time.
Andrew Zarnett, Lodging and Leisure High Yield Debt Analyst, Co-Head of High Yield Research, Deutsche Bank
