“The G&L Community continues to be a great source of information sharing and collaboration. The G&L Roundtable sets the stage for relationship building, idea generation, and open dialog; however, it’s not just limited to a once a year event. The friendships built amongst the industry’s top talents extend throughout the year. I’m thankful to my colleagues who are always open to sharing ideas. In addition, Gaming & Leisure continues to be the best publication our industry has to offer. Its award-winning design coupled with insightful and relevant content make it the must-read magazine that crosses my desk. Congratulations to G&L for many fabulous years covering the gaming and hospitality industries.”
