Tribal Leadership Roundtable: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in the 21st Century

October 08, 2018, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Sands Expo & Convention Center - Titian 2301
When the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) was enacted by the 100th United States Congress in 1988, nobody could have predicted the tremendous success tribal gaming is currently enjoying. 30 years later, the regulatory framework of IGRA is seen by some as antiquated, especially in regards to mobile and sports betting. In this session, our panel of esteemed tribal leaders look back at the tremendous success of tribal gaming with an eye towards the future of the industry.
