      Lessons Learned and Implications for the Future
      An e-Conference to be held 28—30 October 2008

      The first casino resort opened in Atlantic City, NJ in
      1978. Atlantic City was the first US gaming jurisdiction
      outside of Nevada and was widely considered a high-risk
      experiment. Thirty years have pasted since Resorts
      International opened its doors and the experiment is on-
      going. During those 30 years Atlantic City and Atlantic
      County NJ have been transformed, as has the national and
      international gaming landscape. The purpose of this e-
      conference is to look back at the lessons learned from the
      Atlantic City experiment and to look forward to the future
      of Atlantic City and of gaming in general in today’s
      environment of high tech and high levels of competition for
      the consumer’s entertainment dollar.

      Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

      Cultural, economic, environmental, and social impacts on
      Atlantic City and South Jersey;
      Education issues;
      Future of gaming in Atlantic City, the USA, and the World;
      Gambling on the Internet;
      Gaming business models;
      Human resource management issues in casino resorts;
      Problem gaming;
      Substitutes and complimentary products in gaming;
      Sustainable gaming;
      Technology, its impact today and its implications for the
      Urban planning and public policy lessons from Atlantic City;
      Workforce development.
