With the safety of vendors and attendees in mind, the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association (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 is the largest regional show in the country.
“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.
