ICC Keynote Presentation to Focus on Acquisition of Palms Las Vegas
Next week, on Monday, 6th February, the International Casino Conference will be taking place just ahead of ICE London. It will bring together 150 industry leaders for talks on gaming politics, regulation, emerging markets, major casino development projects, and more.
Amongst the speakers at the iGaming event will be Cynthia Kiser Murphey, General Manager of Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, and Laurens Vosloo, CEO of San Manuel Casino. They will be talking about their experience of opening the Palms Casino Resort, which was carried out by the San Manuel Gaming & Hospitality Authority in April 2022, just 132 days after it received its operating license.
Owning a casino resort in the entertainment and gaming mecca of Las Vegas was a long-term vision realized as part of the Tribe’s investment and diversification strategy. At the International Casino Conference, we will be sharing the story of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and how they made history by becoming the first Native American tribe to wholly own and operate a casino resort in Las Vegas.
The San Manuel Tribe is known for their generosity and contributions to building-up communities as a way of showing their gratitude for the kindness that others showed them throughout their journey to self-reliance and sovereignty.
Cynthia Kiser Murphey, the General Manager of Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, explained that in less than four months, the team sourced, hired, and trained 1,200 staff. She added, “We are grateful that so many original Palms team members re-joined our team at the opening. Team members expressed their desire to return because of the magic they feel when working here together. Their energy and enthusiasm are the reasons Palms continues to thrive.”
