Wall Street Analysts To Discuss Gaming Industry From Financial Standpoint At The East Coast Gaming Congress

The next East Coast Gaming Congress and NexGen Gaming Forum, which will be held on September 21-23 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, in Atlantic City, will see a panel of Wall Street analysts gather to study and discuss the gaming industry from a financial perspective.

The speakers will address whether traditional casino companies’ acquisition of digital providers, technology companies, and even media companies are panning out. “Is it smart for sports betting and iGaming operators to spend lavishly on advertising and promotions? Also, what does the future hold for casinos that are now facing competition from digital gaming and even their own state lotteries?”, a press release asks.
