A Different Kind of Gaming Expo

Updated:
WYANDOTTE, OKLAHOMA -

Tommye Blackcrow is a Lucky Star Casino general manager, who's always trying to stay on top of Oklahoma's evolving gaming landscape.

"We have other avenues that are going to be coming into our gaming industry, such as sports betting," said Blackcrow.

And the the Northeastern Oklahoma Indigo Sky Expo, or N.O.I.S.E., is the perfect place to do that. Networking, workshops, vendors, and all the staples of a casino expo are here, but N.O.I.S.E. is unique.

"We have 14 casinos just in our area. And we have 9 tribes here. They don't get to go to those, so we wanted to create an environment where they can come get that same feel, as they wood at the other shows," said N.O.I.S.E. ambassador Jerad Swimmer. 

N.O.I.S.E. is designed specifically to provide the benefits of a gaming expo to casino employees, who aren't typically able to attend long distance expos due to budget concerns. While many tribal casinos compete for the same business, N.O.I.S.E. is about looking past that for a common good.

"We want to share, cultivate, prepare the future tribal leaders which are the children," said Swimmer.

The first annual N.O.I.S.E. expo is about more than just networking and solving common casino problems. It's also a way for casino employees to inspire each other to up their game.

"The presentation this morning was so enlightening that I realize that I need teach my employees better customer service," said Blackcrow.

Because of N.O.I.S.E., Blackcrow knows her team can go from great to phenomenal customer service, and hopes she can pass on some helpful knowledge as well.

"I absolutely think that we can all work together. Even as competitors we can help each other out," said Blackcrow.
