KK BOLD president LaRoy Kingsley and account services director Stephanie Schoenrock attended the 2012 National Indian Gaming Association Trade Show and Convention in San Diego, from April 1 to 4. Steph and LaRoy represented KK BOLD amongst thousands of other attendees, including our friends at Prairie Knights Casino and Resort, Grand River Casino and Resort and Nisqually Red Wind Casino.
The NIGA conference is an annual 4-day gathering of more than 500 exhibitors and over 5,000 attendees, representing more than 200 Indian tribes from 49 states, six countries and seven Canadian provinces. NIGA attendees include Tribal leaders, council members, Indian Gaming commissioners and regulators, and staff and facility members of Indian casinos and their representatives nationwide. As the only Trade Show & Convention created by the National Indian Gaming Association, the convention occupies a special niche in the gaming market.
KK BOLD has attended the NIGA conference for many years running now. Our reasoning for attending is to spend time for our Indian Gaming clients, to attend seminars and trade shows, meet vendors, keep up on industry trends and to maintain our position as a leader in the Indian Gaming market. We meet new people, see some old friends, make some good contacts and introduce our business to a wide array of individuals and businesses.
Congratulations to the National Indian Gaming Association for another great show this year, with attendance up and an outstanding presentation as always. We look forward to being in attendance at next year’s NIGA Convention & Trade Show, and to continuing to be a part of a yearly gathering of the best and brightest in an industry we love to be involved with.
