Gaming operated by the Native American tribes generates almost half of all of the gaming revenue in the USA and is an opportunity largely missed by many global companies. For some, it offers a great first entry into the North American market. Doing business with the tribes can be rewarding financially, but only for those mindful of the regulatory and cultural nuances in Indian Country.

With the growing economic power, tribes are also starting to invest outside the United States – another reason for the global industry to pay attention. Tribes’ regulatory set-up, in which gaming proceeds are fed back into the local economy and social services, can also offer a powerful lesson to governments from around the world investigating how gaming expansion can best constitute a social investment.

Since 2011, ICE has been hosting a growing number of tribes looking for technology, new products and inspiration at the show. The seminar, that enjoys the backing of some of the most credible sources of tribal information, continues to educate the global audiences on the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Indian Country.
