WASHINGTON — This week the American Gaming Association (AGA) unveiled its newly redesigned website, www.americangaming.org, and expanded its social media presence through a new Facebook page and Twitter profile. The new tools will allow the AGA to more successfully fulfill its mission of communicating the positive impact of gaming on communities across the country and serving as the voice of commercial casino industry in Washington.
The AGA’s new website is designed with the user in mind, with a more intuitive interface and more robust search capabilities. An expanded programs section includes pictures from AGA events, and streamlined content and navigation make it even easier to get information on AGA and gaming industry programs, initiatives, events and research.
“Our website is often the first place someone goes to learn more about the commercial casino industry,” said AGA president and CEO Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr. “The new website is much more user-friendly than our last site, which will make it easier for anyone following the industry – members of the media, financial analysts, gaming employees and the general public – to find the information they need.”
The AGA’s presence on Facebook (www.facebook.com/americangaming) and Twitter (@AGAupdate) will allow the organization to build community with those individuals and organizations interested in the commercial casino industry. The AGA will use these platforms to share recent research and industry statistics; update followers on AGA and industrywide events, programs and initiatives; and communicate news from throughout the industry about positive partnerships between gaming companies and their host communities.
“We are looking forward to using these forums to more fully engage with those with a stake in our industry, be they consumers, employees or the media,” said Fahrenkopf. “These are two platforms where we can not only push out industry information to a wider audience, but also interact with those most interested in the work of the AGA and the entire gaming industry.”
