The National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) is partnering Clarion Events with the mission of serving and protecting tribal gaming. NIGA protects and defends tribal gaming and hosts the annual Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention – the largest gathering of tribal leaders and casino executives in the country according to the association.
This new long-term relationship aims to leverage Clarion Events' international track record in expanding association owned tradeshows and conferences. Clarion Events will utilise its multi-platform production reach to introduce Indian gaming into its family of ICE (International Casino Exposition) brands.
„The work we do empowers our tribal communities. “
National Indian Gaming Association Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr. remarked, "Tribal gaming is a dominant force in the gaming community. The work we do empowers our tribal communities and generates important revenue for economic development. As we look to establish a new normal, we are excited to join forces with Clarion Events. They honour the mission and vision of the National Indian Gaming Association, support its membership, and are experts in producing large scale tradeshows and conventions. With their partnership we will grow the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention and expand tribal gaming's global reach through ICE."
Greg Topalian, CEO of Clarion Events North America commented, "We have had a great working relationship with the National Indian Gaming Association for the past 7 years. We greatly respect the work that the Association does for its members and the tribal gaming community. Greater ties between the National Indian Gaming Association and our ICE brands will build on their standard of excellence and grow the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention to new heights." The next edition of the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention is scheduled to take place from April 19 to 22, 2022 in Anaheim, California.www.indiangaming.org
