Oklahoma City – The membership of Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association met today and voted to cancel its 2020 Conference and Trade Show, in an abundance of caution related to the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic and continuing spread of COVID-19 as a result. The annual Conference and Trade Show had been slated for July 27-29 in Tulsa and draws thousands of exhibitors and attendees each year. It is the second largest Tribal Gaming trade show in the country.
“COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic continue to be unpredictable variables in attempting to plan our annual conference in July. Today, our membership voted to cancel this year’s event. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly. The complex nature of staging our event, the intricate planning required on the part of vendors and attendees and the ongoing challenges presented by the virus led us to this decision,” said OIGA Chairman Matthew L. Morgan.
