Oklahoma City (March 09, 2021) – With the safety of vendors and attendees in mind, OIGA has moved its annual Conference and Trade Show to Aug. 16-18. Originally scheduled for late July, the decision was made to move the conference in order to give people more time to obtain COVID-19 vaccinations.
“OIGA is dedicated, first and foremost, to the wellbeing, safety and prosperity of our members, vendors and attendees. While hosting a July event was possible, it is our feeling that by moving into August, we will provide a much safer event for everyone,” said OIGA Chairman Matthew L. Morgan.
The 2021 OIGA Conference and Trade Show, otherwise known as ‘the biggest little show in Indian Gaming,’ will be held in Oklahoma City Aug. 16-18, in the brand-new, state-of-the-art Oklahoma City Convention Center and will draw nearly 3,000 vendors, visitors and guest speakers to downtown Oklahoma City to celebrate and advance our industry.
Oklahoma is home to one of the largest gaming markets in the United States with more than 80,000 electronic machines on the floors of our over 130 operations. The OIGA Conference and Trade Show has always been the largest regional show in the country and are looking forward to hitting that mark again.
The 2021 host hotel is the beautiful new Omni Oklahoma City, across from the 30-acre Scissortail Park. Oklahoma City, with its central location, is drivable for many and we’ve kept registration fees affordable.
“We are looking forward to seeing everyone. After cancelling last year’s events, it’s going to be extra special to see our friends and colleagues from across the country and around the world. We look forward to a wonderful Conference and a spectacular Trade Show at Oklahoma’s City’s brand-new Convention Center and world-class Omni Hotel,” Morgan added.
The welcome reception and Poker Tournament will be held on Monday, Aug. 16. Tuesday morning will be dedicated to conference sessions. The Trade Show floor will open early on Tuesday for maximum networking and instead of the formal luncheon, OIGA’s Annual Awards will be presented on the Trade Show floor stage, with a more casual meal. Wednesday will be filled with more sessions and fun at the Trade Show.
If you have never attended the OIGA Trade Show, you are in for a treat! It is a lively, fun, informative, high-energy assembly of some of the biggest names in the gaming and hospitality industries.
