The State of Illinois has expanded their Casino Gaming to several new markets including Waukegan, Rockford and Chicago to help balance the budget. Politics and excess taxation have frightened some potential bidders, especially for the City of Chicago license. At the same time, real estate developers are wondering whether the new casinos are an opportunity for adjacent development or if it will detract from real estate values.

Please join our outstanding panel to discuss these issues and learn about exciting new industry developments.

Moderator:  Neil Freeman, Chairman, Aries Capital, LLC & REIA Director

Experts:  Kimberly Copp, Partner & Co-Chair of Gaming Practice, Taft Law 
                 Tim Drehkoff, Chief Financial Officer, Rush Street Gaming (Rivers Casino)
