“Congratulations to Jeannie and her team on this tremendous occasion -- 20 years of creating an environment where gaming technology and business leaders get together to share ideas, talk about issues most are experiencing, and introduce new technology/solutions that all could benefit from. The G&L Roundtable is by far the one annual event that I look forward to attending. It is the one time where many of the industry CXO’s come together to openly discuss opportunities, best practices, and new ideas without politics or concern over competitive advantage. Over the time I have been a member I have seen this group more than double. One of the best ideas was to start to include our extended leadership team members so they could start to develop relationships with other members and vendors that they are normally not exposed to. This group is engaging and committed to the growth of technical leadership in our industry. The Gaming & Leisure Magazine just extends what happens at the Roundtable through-out the year. When it arrives, I make sure I take the time to read it front to back. Thank you, Gaming &Leisure, for all that you do, and I look forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”
