Save the Date: 2023 NCLGS Summer

Meeting to be held July 12-15 in Denver

DENVER – The Summer Meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) will be held July 12-15, 2023, at the Sheraton Denver Downtown, with lawmakers from throughout North America participating.

The Summer Meeting in Denver will build off the record attendance of the 2022 Summer Meeting in Boston, which included more than 50 legislators. As the only gaming conference where legislative decision-makers meet, the NCLGS semiannual meeting is expected to attract more than 300 attendees. Legislators, regulators, operators, suppliers, attorneys, lobbyists, media, and other stakeholders will discuss all aspects of regulated gaming.

Committee meetings and general sessions, which are open to all attendees, will focus on all the critical issues facing gaming, from the expansion of sports betting, igaming and ilottery to taxation, compacts with tribal operators and new land-based gaming operations.

This Summer Meeting will include a special forum for new legislators from across the country who want to learn the basics of regulated gaming. Also included will be keynote addresses, legislative committee sessions, two Masterclasses presented by the International Masters of Gaming Law and Gaming Laboratories International’s Regulatory Roundtable, which will precede the NCLGS conference.

As NCLGS grows, so does interest in sponsorships. Interested stakeholders can advance the NCLGS mission and effectively engage with gaming industry decision-makers with a sponsorship package. For sponsorship information, contact
