RDE9: Troubled Times: Does Retail and Gaming Still Make Sense?

When both the retail and gaming industries become individually affected by changes in the economy, does it make sense for the two to continue their strategic partnerships? This session will focus on how retail and gaming will emerge from these difficult economic times. Can the two create a synergy that will make them both stronger, or should a gaming property focus on its strengths and wait for retail to recover independently? What makes sense in the international arena? Experts will discuss turnarounds and success stories.
