Casino Marketers, Host PD Teams, and Leaders Come Together in the Biggest Little City!

Gathering some of the brightest minds in our industry, the Casino Marketing and Technology and Host Player Development Conferences made Reno, NV its home last week as hundreds came to collaborate. Recognized gaming suppliers, thought leaders and casino teams representing over 65 casinos from the United States, Chile, Slovakia and Canada, made up the lively community at the 23rd annual event.

Featuring industry icon Phil Satre and esteemed voices like Ryan McRae, Matt Levitt, and Mark Schaefer, the conference provided both valuable hands-on resource for finding solutions and inspirational keynotes to expand our horizons beyond the gaming floor.

“This year’s show was about engagement. From raised hands to networking on our mobile app, the audience came to give and get answers!” shared Deana Scott. “We enjoyed the inviting atmosphere of Reno and the curiosity and candor to share and learn.”
Embracing Northern Nevada’s culture and history, Host and Player Development Conference attendees took a unique tour to Carson City to visit Steve Browne’s “laboratory” Cactus Jack’s, as well as the 70-year-old Carson Nugget Casino.

As one attendee shared, “Steve’s passion was undeniable. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate not only the history of PD but also wish our tour guide (Steve) a happy birthday!”

Without our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and our attendees, these events are not possible. We look forward to the return of Casino Marketing & Technology and Host Player Development Conferences in Reno in 2024.
