The International Gaming Standards Association is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and to mark that milestone they are holding the IGSA Technology Summit with a focus on sports betting, cashless transactions, and protecting the data amassed by casinos, both online and off. John English just completed a two-year stint as the chairman of the IGSA and explains why the conference is focusing on each of these areas and why the IGSA sessions will be different that other conferences. The Summit is being held at the historic Italian-American Club in Las Vegas on March 15-16. To register for the summit visit gamingstandards.com/events.
