Best Presenter

We try hard to bring good presenters and teachers to the WGPC every year. We are always looking for presenters who are knowledgeable, interesting, engaging, contemporary and relevant to today’s casino environment. We would like to hear your feedback and we know our speakers would like to hear it too. To that end we’ll be running an electronic survey at the WGPC to find out who were the presenters that delegates liked the best. The winner will be announced at the end of the last day of the conference.
