On January 30, the Mississippi Gaming & Hospitality Association (MGHA) announced that it appointed Casino Connection International (CCI), the parent company of Global Gaming Business (GGB) magazine, to organize the Southern Gaming Summit. This year, The Summit will be held from May 2-3 along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

In 2017, MGHA acquired 100% ownership of the Southern Gaming Summit (SGS). MGHA is working to revitalize this annual event to give both sponsors and exhibitors more industry  exposure to the dynamic southern market.

GGB Publisher Roger Gros was one of the original co-producers of SGS in 1994 when the show began. For the past 15 years Gros has served as the conference consultant to the Global Gaming Expo.

“I’ve always held Southern Gaming Summit close to my heart as the first conference and trade show I helped to produce,” says Gros. “Returning to SGS is very important to me, and along with the talented team we’ve assembled, we will help restore it to the prominence it once held.”

SGS 2018 will begin on May 2 with a golf tournament at the Grand Bear Golf Club (a Jack Nicholas design). A Welcome Reception will follow at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino.

On May 3, the conference will kick off at the Beau Rivage Casino Resort with a keynote address by American Gaming Association President & CEO Geoff Freeman. Several conference sessions will be held during the day leading up to a luncheon produced by Global Gaming Women. In the afternoon, additional cutting-edge sessions will be held. The event will conclude with a closing reception and Gala Dinner featuring the inaugural induction of the Mississippi Gaming Hall of Fame.
