PODCAST: How it all happened in Danville, Virginia
When the State of Virginia legalized casinos for five economically distressed cities last year, Danville was the only city that went through a request for proposal process to find a developer for a casino in that town. The city hired Convergence Strategy Group to handle the process, which just ended with the city choosing Caesars Entertainment out of seven original bidders.

They spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from their offices in New Orleans.
