US – BMM to host two tribal iGaming workshops

By - 31 July 2013

BMM Testlabs will be holding two more regional Tribal iGaming workshops in August and September this year. The first event will be hosted by The Grand Ronde Tribe at Spirit Mountain Resort & Casino, Grand Ronde, Oregon on August 22-23 and the September event will be hosted by The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians at Odawa Casino Resort, Petosky, Michigan on September 5 to 6.

During the two-day series of interactive workshops and seminars, called “Finding Your Path”, experts from BMM and the iGaming world will be providing clear and accurate information specifically for the tribal community. Participants will learn the skills to analyze their own Tribe’s iGaming business to enable them to make the best strategic decisions for the financial and operational path to iGaming success.
BMM’s previous “Finding Your Path” workshops have already gained valuable support from the Tribal Gaming Regulatory community. One participant of a recent workshop, Lester Stanley of Rincon Gaming Commission commented “I’ve been to many iGaming conferences – but not one of those gave such direct and appropriate information as this workshop run by BMM. “Finding Your Path” was incredibly useful and we will all take away real-time information that we can use”.
Vince Cook, Regulatory Director for Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians attended a “Finding Your Path” workshop in 2012 and found the information to be so useful, he requested the upcoming workshop at Odawa Casino Resort. Mr. Cook commented “The workshop gave excellent information that not only provided knowledge, but helped me to formulate ideas on how to proceed.”

Richard Williamson, SVP Regulatory for BMM Testlabs, said of the workshops: “BMM’s aim is to educate and familiarize participants with the information they need to analyse their own tribe’s iGaming opportunities. We are not telling anyone how or what to do, we are simply providing the information in a clear and concise way, to enable our participants to make their own informed, practical decisions.”

Another recent participant, Sherry Rodriguez from the La Jolla Gaming Commission described her experience at the workshop “Before I came to ‘Finding your Path’ I thought I was against online gaming, and concerned for the future – now I have a much greater understanding of the processes involved and I know that I need to continue to gain knowledge and understand more before I can make the right decisions. I thank BMM for enabling me to see a way forward.”

Both the Oregon and Michigan workshops are free of charge to Tribal Regulators and Operators. BMM will be providing complimentary breakfast, lunch and refreshments at both workshops with a special evening dinner for all attendees on the first night of each workshop. Pre-registration is required.
