How will this affect the future of Indian gaming?

Committee on Emerging Forms of Gaming

Essex Center/South (3rd Floor)

The Implications and Impacts of New Gaming Options: What are the technological, demographic, competitive and political issues that policymakers must confront and understand when developing gaming policy? With gaming expanding in multiple directions – from more casinos to distributed gaming to online gaming to state-operated gaming via lotteries – policymakers must carefully weigh the implications and impacts of any regulatory change or expansion.

     

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Committee on Pari-Mutuel

Revisiting Statutory Minimum Race Days in the Face of a Deepening Horse Shortage:  Most racetracks cannot fill all of the races they intend to run, racing programs are inundated with short fields, and handle declines are proportionate to fewer horse starters. With horsemen groups reluctant to approve any reduction in race dates, the pari-mutuel industry faces significant challenges amid a rapidly changing overall gaming landscape.

Committee on Casinos

Essex Center/South (3rd Floor)

The Competitive Challenges Grow for Casinos: The commercial casino industry generated more than $50 billion in annual GGR in 2021, a record, but challenges abound – including states’ efforts to authorize video gaming terminals, the presence of unregulated gaming devices in retail locations, and the rise of online gaming. Is there still room for the land-based casino industry to expand – both its volume and its numbers of facilities – or is a sea change slowly occurring in which consumers change the way they consume gaming entertainment? Gaming operators and analysts assess the outline for the land-based casino industry.

Select Committee on Inclusion and Diversity 

Essex Center/South (3rd Floor)

The Business Case for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Despite the gaming industry having one of the most diverse workforces in history, representative leadership remains elusive. How diversity is measured continues to evolve, and it includes not only demographic traits like race, ethnicity, and gender, but recognizes the importance of intersectional identities and the employee experience. Studies confirm that a diverse workforce leads to better business outcomes, more innovation and greater employee satisfaction. What are gaming companies doing to improve diversity knowledge? What are strategies to be more proactive and remove barriers? What type of policies build and encourage diversity in the workplace? How can more champions for DEI be found and what are some next steps?

IMGL Masterclass 1

Essex Center/South (3rd Floor)

Federal and State Taxation of Gambling Activity: Several factors impact gaming-tax policy decisions, including political considerations, legislative processes, economic impacts, and market competition considerations. Tax policy can often be used as a tool to advance other policy goals, such as limiting the impact of problem gambling or otherreal or perceived negative externalities. While the nominal stated tax rate often receives the most attention, several other policy decisions will also impact the effective tax rate. Experts with a range of experiences discuss the considerations in developing and implementing an effective gaming-tax policy.

     

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

IMGL Masterclass 2

Essex Center/South (3rd Floor)

Online Gaming and Crypto: Match Made in Heaven or Nightmare for State Policy Makers and Regulators?  Many states are just in the infancy of implementing online/igaming offerings and getting their regulatory bearings in this emerging gaming sector. What benefits and challenges exist for this growing gaming sector through the introduction of crypto currency as a lawful tender on these platforms? Has crypto currency evolved to a point where it can be introduced into online gaming platforms? If not, what needs to happen at the state or federal level to join cutting edge gaming offerings with a cutting edge currency? Hear from the igaming industry, experts on crypto currency as well as regulators on what gaming states will face in the near future.
