4. The key difference is that a casino is not a professional conference...

...which a person in that field, male or female, needs to attend in order network and keep up with the latest developments. What people do in their spare time is their business (so long as everyone involved is a consenting adult); what I have to put up with in a work setting is a different story. You may not have a problem respecting women in your field due to the presence of other women offered as a commodity (and the attitude that this is acceptable), but others almost certainly do, and I can tell you as a woman it is going to impact my own comfort level to be surrounded by that. I can avoid a casino with no consequences; a professional conference in my field, not so much.
