The Gaming Hall of Fame Charity Gala is an annual event organized by the AGA and its members to honor achievements in industry leadership and entertainment. Induction into the Gaming Hall of Fame is the highest honor accorded by the gaming-entertainment industry. Each year, individuals who have distinguished themselves through significant contributions to the industry receive this distinction. More than 80 people have been inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame since its inception in 1989.
This year’s 26th Annual Gaming Hall of Fame will take place on Monday, September 29 at Hyde Bellagio from 6:30-10 p.m. during the AGA’s premiere gaming tradeshow.
Tickets for the Gaming Hall of Fame Charity Gala can be purchased here. Individual tickets are $500 per ticket. Event sponsorships also are available. After purchasing tickets or sponsorships, please email with the names of those individuals who will be attending the event as well as to receive additional sponsorship information.
