Gaming Summit Set for Mohegan Sun

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The gambling industry is looking to New

England as its latest prospect for legalized casinos.

State lawmakers, business executives, lawyers, industry analysts

and others are expected to gather Monday and Tuesday at a regional

conference at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn.

BNP Media, an industry media company, and Spectrum Gaming Group,

a research firm, are sponsoring the first New England Gaming

Summit. An organizer says the failed effort in Massachusetts this

year to permit casino gambling was one reason organizers turned to

New England for the conference.

Charles Anderer, group publisher of BNP Media, legislative

uncertainty remains in Massachusetts, but looking at gambling

regionally makes sense.

Mitchell Etess (et-‘ISS), chief executive of Mohegan Sun, says

the conference shows the industry’s importance in New England.
