BMM is proud to be taking part in this year’s Indian Gaming tradeshow and convention taking place in San Diego,
April 1-4.

As part of BMM’s commitment to education and training for regulators in the tribal sector, BMM is heavily involved in the training and conference program at Indian Gaming 2012. SVP Regulatory, Richard Williamson will be presenting two programs in the ‘Regulation’ track. ‘Preparing Regulators for online gaming’ runs on Monday April 2nd from 2.15pm-4pm. Williamson says of this program “It’s not a question of if, but when Internet Gaming arrives, our Tribal Regulators must be equipped with as much information as possible to make critical business decisions with regard to their new responsibilities as regulators of their Tribe’s bricks and mortar as well as virtual gaming operations. This program will provide for that exchange.”

The second program presented by BMM discusses “Clarity in Regulation – changes in GLI-11 v.2.1 and the potential impact on your gaming operation” on Wednesday 4th from 9am-10am. Williamson says of this presentation “This is a discussion on recent changes to GLI 11 technical standards. These standards are often adopted by regulators without any meaningful explanation and the new changes now force Tribes to make decisions that will impact how manufacturers create games and how test-labs evaluate games. This discussion will help to clarify the impact of these changes and what each Tribe’s Gaming Commission needs to know to ensure product consistency in their casinos.”

BMM’s COO Mike Dreitzer says “BMM has been supporting Indian Gaming for many years and we are honored to be taking part in this year’s event in such a big way. Over the past few years we have developed an excellent program to service Tribal gaming needs, offering testing, certification, compliance, regulatory services and specifically, free education and training – for both land based and i-gaming. We are very much looking forward to this year’s event.”

BMM will be exhibiting on the tradeshow floor and is pleased to announce special guest, Lisa Schneider – Tribal artist, will be signing posters of her paintings ‘Hatak’ and ‘Listening to the Drum’ on the BMM booth – #1713 on both Tuesday and Wednesday during the show.
