    LAS VEGAS, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary casino giant Steve Wynn will
 speak to the general assembly of the 15th Annual World Gaming Congress and
 Expo (WGCE) this October, show officials announced today. WGCE, the world's
 largest international gaming trade show, will be held October 17-19 at the
 Sand's Expo Center in Las Vegas. Wynn will be the keynote speaker on the final
 day of the three-day event.
     "We are thrilled to have Steve Wynn addressing the attendees of the World
 Gaming Congress and Expo. Steve is a true visionary and has built the future
 of gaming. The match of the futuristic vision of Steve Wynn and the World
 Gaming Congress is a perfect fit," said Peter N. Havens, Executive Vice
 President for GEM Communications U.S., Publications and Trade Show. "Wynn's
 appearance speaks volumes to the importance and seriousness of the World
 Gaming Congress."
     Wynn will be one of three keynote speakers -- one each day -- to headline
 WGCE's legendary educational Conference. Indian Gaming, Lottery and Linked
 Electronic Games, Hospitality, and Jurisdictional Updates are among the dozen
 diverse topics at this year's Conference.
     Wynn almost single-handedly created the living extravaganza that is Las
 Vegas today. Through his entrepreneurial brilliance in real estate and his
 vision of a desert city that could become a haven for people seeking an escape
 from the grim realities of life, he raised the standard for resorts and
 leisure in living around the world. When his flagship property, the Mirage,
 first opened in Las Vegas, it ignited a $12 billion building boom and
 transformed the city into the fastest growing metropolis and most popular
 tourist destination in the country.
     Creator of such groundbreaking, experience-oriented resorts as the Mirage,
 the Bellagio and Treasure Island in Las Vegas, and Mississippi's Beau Rivage,
 Wynn now brings his masterly vision, his entrepreneurial skill and his
 practical know-how to audiences around the country. Wynn offers an inspiring
 tale of success, full of anecdotes from the worlds of business and
 entertainment -- and challenges everyone he meets to raise their own standards
 of achievement and then to surpass them.
