    ST. CHARLES, Mo., April 3 /CNW/ -- River City Group, organizers of the
Global Interactive Gaming Summit and Expo (GIGSE) to be held June 5-7 at the
Palais des Congres in Montreal, are pleased to announce that renowned gambling
expert I. Nelson Rose will provide the keynote address at this year's ninth
annual event.
    Professor I. Nelson Rose is an internationally-known scholar, public
speaker and writer and is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities
on gambling law. A 1979 graduate of Harvard Law School, he is a tenured full
Professor at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, Calif., where he teaches one
of the first law school classes on gaming law. He is best known for his
internationally-syndicated column "Gambling and the Law." Rose is also co-
editor-in-chief of the Gaming Law Review.
    Due to his insight and awareness of the industry, Professor Rose has
consulted such organizations as the Congress of State Lotteries of Europe,
National Academy of Sciences and the National Conference of State
Legislatures. He has also been a major contributor to law firms, Indian
tribes, licensed casinos, international corporations and state and national
governments.
    His keynote address will describe how the industry has evolved to the
shape it takes today and what the industry timeline is expected to reveal. In
this lecture, Professor Rose will also discuss current developments throughout
the world, including attempts by countries to keep out foreign online
operators.
    River City Group CEO Sue Schneider said, "We're pleased that he'll be
offering GIGSE attendees his perspectives on what's been a rocky year around
the world for the industry and his predictions for its future. Rose is clearly
one of the leading gaming attorneys in the world and is in demand globally for
both his knowledge of industry legal developments as well as his straight-
shooting talk."
    I. Nelson Rose will be the highlight of an internationally-focused
program filled with stimulating discussion topics focusing on the most salient
issues of the moment and examined by knowledgeable experts in the field.
Complementing the strong conference program is the extended exhibition
showcasing powerhouse companies that represent every sector in the i-gaming
