CGA Update - Second Annual Community Gaming Conference Call for Submissions
CGA

Summer has officially hit and while some things slow down, planning for the second annual Community Gaming Conference is in full swing.

The Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) hosted the inaugural Community Gaming Conference last January and more than 200 participants spent three days together, networking and participating in a wide range of discussions. The next one will take place at the Westin Bristol in Toronto, from January 26 to 27, 2016.

This is a unique event dedicated to community gaming centres, bingo centres and the charitable gaming industry as a whole. Charitable gaming facilities are an important part of the economic and entertainment mix in jurisdictions across the country and the CGA remains a strong supporter of the industry and the benefits it brings to communities.

The Community Gaming Conference is accepting proposals for panel moderators,

panel speakers, and 50 minute-long presentation topics relevant to the community gaming industry. More information is available at www.CommunityGamingConference.ca.
