Since 2006 the WGPC has connected casino surveillance professionals, gaming managers and regulators from around the world. The show was founded on the need for game protection information but as the casino industry evolved the event has expanded its educational content to include awareness and protection strategies for overall casino operational risk. This annual 3-day conference and exhibition event focuses on threats, vulnerabilities and risk to casino operations. The WGPC program covers three broad subject areas that collectively shape a casino’s overall risk management strategy – game protection, asset protection and people protection.
Who Should Attend
Casino employees and regulators responsible for observing, detecting, investigating, reporting or acting on undesirable activity in a casino. The WGPC is not open to the public.
The organizers of the show strive to bring educational content to key employees who seek a deeper understanding of how to operate and protect a casino in today’s ever-changing business and social environment. We believe that the continued success and reputation of the casino industry is dependent on continued education, sharing information and the convergence of capabilities. We are passionate about new ideas, solutions, finding a better way and bringing a community of like-minded souls together to engage in topics of the day and help keep our industry strong.
Genuine progress is made by bringing people with a common cause together and uniting them behind a clear and compelling purpose. Conferences often bring people with different perspectives together to debate key issues, which in turn generates new ideas and innovations. By taking delegates away from everyday distractions, conferences enable deeper, more focused learning. Conferences also provide a means for professionals to widen their network and build friendships with people who can provide future support.
