UNLV's Casino Ops'99 Presents Extensive Seminar Program, 
Expert Speakers At June Conference

Industry's Most Prestigious Educational Conference Focuses on Effective and Efficient Casino Operation

The second annual UNLV's Casino Ops will be held on June 22 & 23, 1999 at the MGM Grand Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, and will feature the industry's most comprehensive education for middle and junior management gaming executives looking to advance their careers.

UNLV's Casino Ops, produced by Casino Journal Publishing Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CJPG - news) features cutting-edge seminars with expert speakers explaining the intricacies of their particular subjects. Last year, more than 500 executives from casinos and businesses in 16 states and as far away as South Korea attended UNLV's Casino Ops. 
The shortage of formal education programs in many regions of the United States, especially Native American gaining jurisdictions, makes the program presented at Casino Ops extremely valuable.

There is no gaming conference that combines the specialties of the two producers of Casino Ops, the educational excellence of UNLV's International Gaming Institute and the extensive gaming publications of Casino Journal Publishing Group.

UNLV's Casino Ops is designed to give members of middle and junior management involved in gaming operations, a well-rounded overview of how the most successful casinos function. Seminars are divided into three areas: Slots, Human Resources and Casino Issues (casino development, financial insight, tribal gaming, and other related subjects). Each 90-minute seminar features a moderator and at least three panelists, who are widely regarded as experts in their fields.

Speakers will include many member and adjunct members of UNLV's faculty, high level executives actively involved in casino operations, executives with some of the industry's leading supply and service companies, influential gaming attorneys, editors of
Casino Journal, Casino Player, Strictly Slots and the National Gaming Summary publications, and public officials involved in regulating gaming.

In addition to casino management, attending Casino Ops is valuable for mid-level executives with supply and service companies; gaming regulators, educators, and financial analysts who need to understand the specifics of casino operations.

This year held in the luxurious new conference center at MGM Grand, UNLV's Casino Ops features a luncheon with MGM Grand President Bill Hornbuckle, one of the fastest rising stars in the gaming industry. Hornbuckle will explain how the worlds largest casino resort blends endless amenities with excellent customer service.
