AGA announces finalists for tenth Annual Gaming Industry Communications Awards

(US).- The American Gaming Association (AGA) announced finalists for the 2010 Gaming Voice Awards, recognizing outstanding achievement in public relations, marketing, advertising and financial and corporate communications in the gaming industry.

T

he finalists, which represent 22 gaming companies, properties and organizations from three countries, were named in 15 categories, including best 2009 annual report; best customer and employee publications; best print, outdoor, radio and television advertisements; best direct mail, best website, and best communications and multi-format advertising campaigns.

 

Three categories representing the newest trends in marketing and communications will make their debut at this year’s awards – best social media program or campaign, best mobile marketing and best digital direct marketing. A panel of judges with expertise in advertising, marketing, public relations, Internet design, graphic arts and financial communications evaluated 220 entries to determine the 46 finalists.

 

“The marketing and communications efforts you see on behalf of the gaming industry are some of the finest you’ll see in any industry, and we are proud to honor the best of the best at this year’s Gaming Voice Awards,” said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., president and CEO of the AGA, who will serve as master of ceremonies for the awards presentation. 

 

Gaming Voice Awards will be presented at the AGA Communications Awards Presentation, part of the Global Gaming Expo’s Marketing Networking Luncheon, on Wednesday, November 17, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

 

The AGA also will honor Daniel Heneghan, public information officer for the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Gaming Communications.  Heneghan has been involved in the Atlantic City gaming industry since its inception, first serving for 17 years as the gaming beat reporter for the Press of Atlantic City, during which time he covered every casino licensing hearing, casino opening and major event in the gaming industry.  In 1996, he accepted his current position at the Commission, where he is the official spokesperson and responsible for the agency’s media relations.

 

“For more than 30 years, Dan has been a fixture in the Atlantic City gaming community,” Fahrenkopf said. “He has always covered and represented the industry honestly and fairly, and that is all any industry can ask of its beat reporters or its regulators.  I can’t think of anyone who deserves this honor more than Dan.”

 

The AGA Communications Awards are made possible with support from Piercy Bowler Taylor & Kern (PBTK) and Global Gaming Expo (G2E).
