Temecula, CA (September 29, 2021) ­ – The National Indian Gaming Association will be hosting their 2021 Mid-Year Conference & Expo on November 15-17, 2021 at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, CA.

After a one year hiatus, this Mid-Year event returns as the premiere fall event for the tribal gaming community to learn, network, and share ideas on today’s hottest topics in gaming. The 2021 conference will take place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with events including but not limited to education sessions, Commissioner’s Certification, exhibitor and sponsor booths, National Indian Gaming Association annual meeting, receptions and networking events.

The Mid-Year comes on the heels of the industry’s first major in-person event, the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention, which took place this past July in Las Vegas. The event was a great success, with attendance almost reaching pre-pandemic levels, but more importantly great feedback on how important the connections and content were.

We are excited that the Mid-Year Conference & Expo will be held at the beautiful Pechanga Resort Casino. This is a great venue to bring Tribal and Gaming leaders together and have the important conversations we need to have to continue to set the new normal.

The Mid-Year Conference & Expo will have a comprehensive schedule planned to welcome tribal leaders, member tribes and commercial operators back together and keep them informed on trending issues in the gaming industry. Conference Chairman Victor Rocha, Editor of and President of Victor Strategies, will be building a diverse education program covering important topics.

Most importantly, the National Indian Gaming Association will work to ensure the safety of all attendees, exhibitors and staff. The event will follow the guidelines issued by the CDC, California and local officials. The National Indian Gaming Association is working hand-in-hand with Pechanga Resort Casino to create a safe and productive business environment.
