2013 Gaming Conference Recap
Attended by over 300 auditors, regulators, and related professionals in the gaming industry, the 2013 Gaming Conference in Las Vegas was one of The IIA’s hottest conferences to date.
An award of appreciation was presented during the opening session to Ron W. Reigle, CIA, founder of the Gaming Advisory Group, renowned auditor, author, and advocate for the profession. This award recognized Ron’s years of service with the Gaming Advisory Board and his involvement in the continued success of The IIA’s annual Gaming Conference.
Attendees delighted in the opportunity to discuss Mike Jacka’s new book, Auditing Social Media: A Governance and Risk Guide, with the author himself as he shook hands, answered questions, and autographed copies of the book during one of the conference’s networking breaks.
This year’s 24 concurrent sessions, focused on topics ranging from Fraud in the Back of the House, to Current Issues in Indian Gaming, and Top Ten Internal Control Issues in the Gaming Industry, were facilitated by internal audit professionals well respected within the business. Each session leader offered insights and experiences that were relatable and relevant to attendees.
Always a favorite, Wednesday evening brought the Gaming Industry Executive Panel, with experts Phillip Popehn, Robert Rudloff, and Arthur Askins breaking down gaming’s current hottest topics. The event wrapped up Friday morning with two spectacular, timely general sessions on the Latest Developments in iGaming and How Internal Audit Has Moved to the Front line in the Fight Against Casino Fraud. For those who played all-in, this year’s conference offered a big win!
