TechFest 31 Open for Registration

Slot Tech magazine has announced that TechFest 31 is now open for registration. The often sold-out event will be held at Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, Louisiana. The dates are October 13-15, 2015. Travelers by air to the event are advised to fly into Alexandria, Louisiana airport (AEX).

“I don’t think it’s possible to improve TechFest,” said Randy Fromm, publisher of Slot Tech Magazine and host of TechFest. “It really is the most training you can possibly stuff into three full days. This TechFest is the only one we’ll have in the south so if it interests you to come, this is your chance.”
