The Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association (OIGA) has changed the date of its annual Conference and Trade Show from late July to August 16-18. The decision to adjust the schedule was taken to allow patients enough opportunities to get COVID-19 vaccines.
The 2021 OIGA Conference and Trade Show, dubbed “the biggest little show of Indian gaming,” will be held in downtown Oklahoma City’s brand-new, state-of-the-art Oklahoma City Convention Center, and is scheduled to attract approximately 3,000 dealers, tourists, and guest speakers to celebrate and advance the gaming industry.
Matthew L Morgan, the Association’s Chairman, said: “OIGA is dedicated, first and foremost, to the wellbeing, safety and prosperity of our members, vendors and attendees. While hosting a July event was possible, it is our feeling that by moving into August, we will provide a much safer event for everyone.”
With more than 80,000 electronic devices on the floors of more than 130 operations, Oklahoma has one of the biggest gaming markets in the United States. The OIGA Conference and Trade Show has always been the country’s largest regional show, and Morgan expects it to do so again this year.
Wonderful Conference and a spectacular Trade Show
He added: “We are looking forward to seeing everyone. After cancelling last year’s events, it’s going to be extra special to see our friends and colleagues from across the country and around the world. We look forward to a wonderful Conference and a spectacular Trade Show at Oklahoma’s City’s brand-new Convention Center and world-class Omni Hotel.”
On Monday, August 16, there will be a welcome reception and a poker tournament. The conference sessions will take place on Tuesday morning, while the trade show floor will open early on Tuesday to allow for optimum networking. The OIGA Annual Awards will be held on the trade show floor stage, at a more intimate dinner, rather than at a formal luncheon.
