NMTC members got an insider’s view on “Gambling in Maryland and Beyond: What to Know”. Download presentation pdfKarmel_NMTC_Nov_2013_1.pdf

Maryland has a casino past, we now see gambling popping up everywhere but the future, wow! Technology, especially internet technology will change the industry, change us and create new business opportunities as we compete with neighboring states for the Maryland gambler’s dollars

We learned the odds of can we actually win? We found out just how much casinos make, what is their business/revenue model and strategy is and what we can learn from them for our businesses.

Lastly we learned of the trend that will soon enough ‘creep into our homes and offices’ – mobile gambling.

All in all it was great networking, enjoyed a catered breakfast, and entertained by  the sounds of slot machine bells echoing and the wondering if we took a chance, would  we walk away richer.

All I can say is, this was an exciting meeting at the Hollywood Casino!

Our presenter was Dr. James Karmel, who earned a Ph.D. in History from the University at Buffalo (the State University of New York at Buffalo), with a specialty on American economic history.  He is currently a Professor of History at Harford Community College, where he teaches a business class on casino management.  He is the author of Gambling on the American Dream: Atlantic City and the Casino Era (London: Pickering & Chatto, 2008) and a casino gambling analyst.  His commentary on the casino industry and related topics has appeared in media outlets such as the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Business Journal and Associated Press.
