Three Major Gaming Organizations to

Co-Locate with NCLGS Summer Meeting

DENVER – The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) welcomes three major organizations of gaming professionals when it convenes for its Summer Meeting, July 12-15 at the Sheraton Downtown Denver.


Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), the International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL) and the Sports Betting Regulators Association (SBRA) will all be meeting during the NCLGS 2023 Summer Meeting, underscoring its position as the only gaming-related conference where legislative decision-makers meet and develop policy.


“I have been involved with NCLGS since its formative years. It is the premier organization for thoughtful public policy discussions on the most important gaming industry issues,” said Kevin Mullally, Senior Vice President of Government Relations & General Council at GLI. “GLI’s long partnership with NCLGS has enabled consistent gatherings of thought leaders in gaming regulation essential to developing effective and pragmatic solutions to our most pressing problems.”


IMGL will hold two Masterclasses on July 15 – one on special purpose acquisition companies and mergers & acquisitions, and the other on the intersection of regulatory oversight in gaming policy.


“The value of having policymakers and policy implementers on the same page from a knowledge and learning base is critical to a successful regulatory approach in a highly regulated industry such as gaming,” said Marc Dunbar, Executive Vice President of IMGL and Shareholder of Dean Mead and Dunbar. Both IMGL classes are open to NCLGS registrants.


The Sports Betting Regulators Association will hold a general session open to all attendees on July 14. The group’s goal is to address the needs of the growing number of state agencies that assigned the responsibility for the regulation of sports betting in their jurisdictions. “It’s extremely valuable for the senior-level regulators who comprise the SBRA to interact directly with those who write the laws they enforce and explore common sense solutions to common challenges,” said Ed Martin, President of the SBRA.


NCLGS meetings are organized and produced by Spectrum Gaming Group, which serves as NCLGS Executive Director. The NCLGS semiannual meetings attract dozens of state legislators as well as regulators, operators, suppliers, attorneys, lobbyists, media, and other stakeholders to discuss all aspects of regulated gaming. The meetings help state legislators from across the country establish sound, effective gaming policies.
