Nichols, N.Y (February 13, 2017) – Tioga Downs, a premier entertainment and gaming destination located in Upstate New York, today announced Stephanie Rogers as their new Director of Sales.
Rogers brings a variety of experience in hospitality, most recently having worked for a national hotel chain and a well-known New York resort and conference center. She is a member of ESSAE (Empire State Society of Association Executives) and MPI (Meeting Planners International). She currently lives in Vestal, New York with her husband, and their son and dog.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join such a dynamic team with a grand vision for the future of Tioga Downs,” said Rogers. “With a buildout of the additional amenities for our world-class gaming and entertainment complex, there is a lot of work to do ahead of us, but I know we’ll be able to reach those goals.”
Tioga Downs is home to a multitude of entertainment experiences. Beyond the casino, there are seven different restaurant and bar options to satisfy a wide variety of tastes, and there are live bands every weekend at Virgil’s LIVE and The Sideshow Lounge. Additionally, Tioga Downs includes a 5/8-mile harness racetrack that hosts live harness racing every year from May through September and year-round simulcasting of top thoroughbred and harness racing from around the continent.
Late last year, Tioga Downs celebrated its tenth anniversary. They also opened a new casino in December, which features 33 long-awaited table games, including Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette, as well as popular casino games like Pai Gow Poker, Let It Ride, 3-Card and 4-Card Poker and the Big 6 Wheel.
“In just the last several months, we’ve experienced tremendous growth at Tioga Downs,” said Tioga Downs President and General Manager Scott Freeman. “Rogers brings a wealth of experience to our team. We’re looking forward to capitalizing on these achievements and continuing to expand our gaming and entertainment complex, culminating with a November 1 161-room Hotel and Convention Center opening.”
In addition to the opening of the casino, last year marked the tenth anniversary celebration for Tioga Downs. The entertainment complex offers live harness racing, casino gaming and live entertainment. Jeff Gural owns Tioga Downs in Nichols, NY as well as Vernon Downs in Vernon, NY. With a commercial gaming license now officially granted and the casino open, Tioga Downs is continuing to push forward on the buildout of the additional amenities for its world-class gaming and entertainment complex.
