Release…Friday, April 13, 2018, updated Nov 14, 2018

With BC’s largest casino as the backdrop, along with a world class education program, 50+ companies exhibiting and several fun-filled networking activities, the 2018 WCTA Annual Conference held at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, BC was our best attended show in the past 5 years.

“It was an easy decision to return to the River Rock in 2019,” stated WCTA President Peter Sorokovsky.  “It was pretty much preordained by all those who stayed to the end when we asked them if we should come back next year.  The answer was an overwhelming yes!”

Now it’s official.  The WCTA Board has made the final decision and the venue has been booked for February 20-22, 2019, one week later than the 2018 event.

Preparations have already begun and further information will be revealed when available.  WCTA Executive Director Jerry Rousseau hinted, “It will be hard to beat the 2018 conference education program but there were a couple amazing speakers we couldn’t get because of scheduling conflicts.  We won’t have that problem for 2019.”
