MGHA Acquires Entire Southern Gaming Summit

The Mississippi Gaming & Hospitality Association, representing the Mississippi casino industry, recently acquired the 50 percent share that BNP Media Gaming Group had in the Southern Gaming Summit. As a result, MGHA now has full ownership of the event. BNP still retains full ownership of Bingo World Conference & Expo, which it had managed concurrently with the Southern Gaming Summit since 2010.

MGHA Executive Director Larry Gregory said, “We have enjoyed working with BNP in co-producing the Southern Gaming Summit. Today, we look forward to working with our members to bring Southern Gaming Summit back with a new look and offerings to our exhibitors, sponsors and attendees. We are truly excited about the future of Southern Gaming Summit.”

MGHA will announce complete details on the timing and agenda of the Southern Gaming Summit later this year.

The Southern Gaming Summit was founded by GGB Publisher Roger Gros and former MGHA executive director and now Harrison County, Mississippi, Supervisor Beverly Martin.
