ustomers of AGEM-member companies from around the world will be invited to the event on Tuesday, November 18 at The Orleans Arena featuring a closing concert by Grammy-award-winning headliner Kenny Loggins and a variety of other entertainment and surprises.
In the past during G2E, most of the larger slot machine companies would host elaborate parties that had their customers racing all over Las Vegas trying to attend as many of the events as possible. Now - with Aristocrat Technologies, Bally Technologies, International Game Technology (IGT) and WMS as title sponsors - competing companies from all over the world are working together in a show of appreciation to their global customer base.
“I think it's remarkable that we have this kind of cooperation among our member companies,” said AGEM President Brooke Dunn, a Senior Vice President of Las Vegas-based Shuffle Master. “Whether you're interested in table games, slot machines, peripheral devices, new technology or a variety of other products offered by AGEM members, this truly will be a celebration of you as our customer and for the gaming industry as whole.”
AGEM was formed as an international trade association representing manufacturers of gaming devices, systems and components for the gaming industry. AGEM works to further the interests of gaming equipment manufacturers throughout the world. Through political action, trade show partnerships, information dissemination and good corporate citizenship, the members of AGEM work together to create benefits for every company within the organization.
Together, AGEM has assisted regulatory commissions and participated in the legislative process to solve problems and create a business environment where AGEM members can prosper while providing a strong level of support to education and responsible gaming initiatives.
