“Congratulations Jeannie on pulling off the near impossible; a timely, well written, informative magazine that addresses the industry issues we face every day. You’ve introduced us to new vendors, industry peers and helped open our minds to new ideas. The dialogue you have fostered through the magazine and the annual G&L Roundtable has been tremendous. What other industry can say they gather together such a large percentage of gaming and hospitality management in one room to discuss current issues and solutions; and then allow us to network with all our vendors? Truly an amazing feat and something I look forward to every year. Here’s to many more years of G&L!”
