The corporate gamblers and sporting folks are coming to Cancun in May, in this press release, and as further tease to the folks pushing increased gambling in Mexico, in resort cities like Cancun.
The International Gaming Conference & Expo, (IGCE Europe), following very positive results from their two conferences of 2006, in San Jose, Costa Rica and Dublin, Ireland, has now scheduled its first gathering for May 7-9, 2007, in Cancun Mexico. The chosen venue is the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun, possibly Cancun's finest resort.
"After our successes in 2006," indicated Cynthia Pagano, Assistant Director of Conferences for the IGCE, a subsidiary of The Sports Network, the premiere international sports wire service in the nation, "we focused on securing locales for North America and Europe, with an eye cast in the direction of yet another in the Far East for 2008, venues that would be our destinations for at least the next three years. Cancun is perfect, easy to reach, a five-star resort for our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, attendees and we are now in the process of concluding Prague as our European setting with Bangkok, Thailand likely for our Far East offering in 2008.
The focus of the conference in Cancun is billed as "What's Next?" with an intention to attempt to determine the direction of the gaming and gambling industries in the U.S. and abroad, particularly off-shore. "In a society such as ours," Ms. Pagano continued, "where gambling is pervasive, lotteries are held in almost every state, there is an overflow of Indian casinos, Nevada is burgeoning and busting at the seams, wagering is a near obsessive pastime of the populace, odds are published in all of our media, the intention of the government to curtail the activity, with emphasis on the Internet, demands a multitude of questions and answers to determine what is next."
