Empire Resorts And SUNY-Sullivan Announce Partnership

Stocks in this article: EPR NYNY

After the publication of the New York Gaming Facility Siting Board’s Request for Applications which calls for a development plan that includes workforce training programs, Empire Resorts, Inc. (“Empire”) (NASDAQ-GM:NYNY) announced it has begun collaborating with SUNY-Sullivan to develop a comprehensive training program, customized to prepare graduates to join the future casino and resort workforce.

Over the past three years Empire and their partner EPR Properties (NYSE:EPR) ("EPR") and their respective subsidiaries, have worked to develop a master plan and designs for a fully-integrated four-season destination resort at the site of the former Concord Resort in Sullivan County. Named and branded as Adelaar, the casino and hotel resort portion is expected to employ approximately 1,200 full time employees with hundreds of additional hospitality positions anticipated to result from the non-casino portions of Adelaar that include a waterpark hotel, entertainment village, golf course and clubhouse.

“Thanks in many ways to our ongoing collaboration with the local community, if we are awarded a gaming license, we are on a fast track to developing a comprehensive casino resort destination in Sullivan County,” said Empire Resorts’ Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and Corporate Communications Charles Degliomini. “Upon the granting of a casino license, we look forward to the opportunity to deliver the jobs made possible by the casino legislation and a partnership with SUNY-Sullivan would be an important step in achieving that goal. By working together to develop and implement a custom training program, we can help to ensure a qualified local workforce and desperately needed career opportunities within the county.”

SUNY-Sullivan and Empire anticipate collaborating on the development of courses to complement SUNY-Sullivan’s current Hospitality and Tourism Management, Culinary Arts and Computer Information Systems programs. Courses are expected to range from an overview of careers within the gaming industry to management and leadership development. They also anticipate the establishment of an internship program for students who are interested in a career in the casino and resort industry. Additionally, SUNY-Sullivan us expected to develop a series of personal enrichment offerings for Adelaar’s guests through their Office of Community Learning.
