expansion in the Sunshine State.

The Florida Gaming Summit, which takes place Oct. 16-17 at the Seminole
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino here, has attracted expert speakers to address
such issues as state compacts with Indian casinos, deregulation, and
allowing slot machines at parimutuel facilities beyond Broward County.
