As the gaming industry's premier event that brings together leaders from all global gaming sectors, the Summit provides gaming operators, suppliers, attorneys, investors, bankers, regulators and other advisors with an unparalleled opportunity to meet and discuss the top issues and challenges facing gaming today.

WilmerHale Partner Sharon Cohen Levin will participate in a panel discussion on "The Impact of Negative Media Coverage on Global Gaming: A Roundtable Assessment coordinated by Global Gaming Women," which will discuss: “Pataki: Online gambling will fuel terrorism, organized crime.” “Casino-linked crime up 19 pct in 2016: Macau police.” “New ISIS Video Includes Las Vegas Strip Footage.” “How Casinos Enable Gambling Addicts.” With headlines like these appearing around the world in mainstream media, how does the gaming industry work together to address misleading public perceptions about gambling in all its forms? With extensive industry multi-jurisdictional efforts focused on anti-money laundering safeguards, responsible gaming, and operator social responsibility, is there more that could be done to advocate for the benefits the industry provides to its surrounding communities? Featuring an impressive lineup of industry notables, this panel will share their thoughts on these issues and more.
