Forum Partners

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.

Please call us at 201-857-5333 for more information.
