Empire Resorts is hosting an informational session on Tuesday, Jan. 12 at the Sullivan County Government Center (100 North St., Monticello, 12701) for contractors and vendors that are interested in providing services and/or supplies for Montreign Resort Casino.
This informational session, which begins at 10 a.m. is designed as a tool for local people and businesses to gain understanding of the requirements to ultimately participate in the casino's development.
Sub-contracting and vendor opportunities, as well as the pre-qualification process, will be discussed.
Individuals and businesses interested in attending should email
or call MWVBE Community Outreach at (845) 372-6281 to register by Jan. 8.
The New York State Gaming Commission, which regulates all aspects of gaming and gambling activity, will present licensing requirements for contractors and vendors who would like to do business with casinos. Empire State Development will explain Gov. Cuomo's commitment to ensuring significant Minority, Women and Veteran-owned Business Enterprise (MWVBE) participation in capital projects such as Montreign.
"This project is an extraordinary opportunity for contractors and vendors throughout the Hudson Valley," said Charles Degliomini, Executive Vice President for Empire Resorts. "Montreign is a project of regional significance and this is a key time for local companies to connect with us so they can benefit from this opportunity."
