Join Baker Donelson shareholders Amy Kebert Elder and William G. Somerville for the "Commercial Gaming: State of the States" panel at the 2017 Southern Gaming Summit.

The 2016 election and the simple passage of time has brought with a host of new realities and the potential for change in issues that have long been on states' regulatory radar, such as online gaming, sports betting, daily fantasy sports, skill-based gaming and competitive video gaming more commonly known as e-sports, which is being evaluated as a new source of wagering in Nevada. In the annual State of the States panel, sponsored by Baker Donelson, hear about the impact of the elections and what the landscape looks like from legal and regulatory authorities and experts from the southern region and nationally.
