Filed Under: Meetings | Opinion

"Here's a prediction -- and this is saying something considering gambling has barely a bill before the Legislature during the 2013 session: What goes on at Spectrum Gaming's 8th Florida Gaming Congress Feb. 25 and 26 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood will be the talk of next week's political calendar, and maybe even after that.

Who will attend? Spectrum boasts, "corporate executives, gaming operators, elected officials, regulators, vendors, developers, investors, analysts, and anyone else who is -- or wishes to be -- involved in Florida's nearly $3 billion gaming industry."

Marc Dunbar, partner with conference presenting sponsor Jones, Walker, Waechter, Poitevent, Carrère & Denègre LLP, said he believes the public policy panel he will moderate as part of the Congress's lunchtime program "is going to end up shaping gaming policy in Florida." Other panels in a full agenda include "Destination Florida," "The Future of Racetrack Gaming," "Wall Street's Focus on Florida," and "Internet Gaming in the U.S.""
