SAN DIEGO - The 17th annual meeting and trade show of the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) will convene April 20-23 in San Diego. Thousands of tribal and industry leaders will attend the event titled "Indian Gaming ‘08" to visit 500 vendors and exhibitors representing the gaming and hospitality industries.
"Since the passage of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act 20 years ago, Indian gaming has grown to a more than $26 billion annual industry," said NIGA Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr., a member of the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin. "NIGA brings together over $26 billion in purchasing power under one roof. We are proud to support California tribes by being here in San Diego for our annual trade show. NIGA pays tribute to their - and all other gaming tribes' - achievements over the past 20 years."
