Executive Development Program

We are proud to partner with our colleagues at the University of Nevada, Reno, for the 2018 Executive Development Program (EDP)—held every fall in beautiful Lake Tahoe. 

Founded in 1990 by Dr. Bill Eadington, the pioneer of commercial gaming studies, EDP preserves his legacy by encouraging future leaders of the global gaming industry to think strategically about emerging industry issues.

Components of this 9-day program are twofold. Participants will:

  • Attend daily seminars taught by some of the business world’s most influential innovators and executives
  • Collaborate with team members to confront challenges and embrace opportunities—applying what they’ve learned to a case-study analysis 

The most prestigious leadership development academy of its kind, EDP creates lifelong connections and enables participants to gain valuable insights into an ever-changing industry.

This year's program will be co-moderated by IGI Executive Director, Dr. Bo Bernhard, and former Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman, Mark Lipparelli (himself a graduate of EDP), and will be held in November 10-18, 2018.
