Florida Gaming Congress meets this week

As Tallahassee gears up to discuss the upcoming Seminole compact, and the collateral effects, here’s a way to get a head start on things: Top casino legislators, operators and other experts will be discussing the possibilities at the annual Florida Gaming Congress.

The conference is usually held in South Florida, but this year, it’s in Orlando Jan. 6-7 (about the time this site goes public).

Speakers this year include Maureen Adams, president and general manager of Calder Race Course, Inc.; Marc Dunbar, a partner in Jones Walker legal firm; Steve Geller, former president of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States; Izzy Havenick, Vice President of Political Affairs for Magic City Casino, Naples Fort Myers Greyhound Racing and Poker, and Dania Jai-Alai; Dave Jonas, CEO, Casino Miami and Donn Mitchell, chief administrative officer for Isle of Capri Casinos Inc.
