Tribal iGaming Business Conference Will Explore the Future of the Industry
Victor Rocha, the owner of Pechanga.net, a leading news aggregator for the gaming industry for over 14 years, is pleased to announce a partnership with Spectrum Gaming Group, the world’s leading gaming research and professional services firm, to host the inaugural Indian Country Online: The 2013 Congress. The conference will be held at the spectacular Pechanga Resort and Casino on June 3-4, 2013, in Temecula, California.
The one-day conference, themed, “No Tribe Left Behind,” will take a comprehensive look at the next wave of business opportunities that technology, e-commerce, and iGaming will create for the tribes and entrepreneurs of Indian Country. We will also explore the current global & US business markets and look at the ancillary businesses created to support the industry.
“If we focus only on the business of iGaming, Indian Country will be left without the ability to grasp the full potential and benefits that the iGaming industry stands to produce. I felt there was an urgent need for us to look beyond the current debate on online gaming and focus on the entire industry, including the myriad of business opportunities, that will be created by iGaming & e-commerce,” said Mr. Rocha. “Creating this conference is my way of pulling back the curtains and demonstrating that every tribe in the country can have a role and an opportunity to benefit in some real and direct way. No tribe should be left behind!”
“With the prospect of online wagering, tribal councils face a combination of opportunities and challenges, along with a cacophony of opinions, interpretations and legislative issues,” said Spectrum Managing Director Michael Pollock. “This conference has been structured to cut through the noise, identify the opportunities and chart some realistic pathways.”
