The Sixth Annual Tribal General Manager & Casino Executive Exchange will be held February 24-26, 2019 at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ! This event will bring together GMs and Casino Executives from Tribal-owned casinos for two+ days of professional, moderator-led roundtable discussions, small group break-out sessions, peer-to-peer dialogues and plenty of networking opportunities. This is a C-Level event to build alliances within your industry. The General Manager & Casino Executive Exchange is about the expressing of common concerns and the sharing of information.

This is an outstanding prospecting opportunity for Forum Partners to meet and establish professional connections in a casual environment with GMs and Casino Executives who have discretion over multi-million dollar budgets. The time and costs associated with this event are small when compared to those for coordination of travel and scheduling on your own; the opportunity to connect with so many members of this prestigious crowd would take months.

This is not an exhibit hall-style event. Exclusivity and access to General Managers & Casino Executives is the key for each Forum Partner to maximize their ROI. Forum Partner Executives will be with the attendees during scheduled meetings, meals and all social events.

Registration is now closed.
