“In the age of the 24-hour news cycle, it can be difficult for busy gaming executives to stay abreast of the hundreds of stories published about our industry every day,” said Frank J.

Using proprietary technology, editors of AGA SmartBrief distill and disseminate critical gaming industry news, free of charge, to individuals working in the gaming industry on a daily basis.

“As an event by the industry and for the industry, G2E strives to provide gaming industry leaders with the resources they need to be successful,” said Courtney Muller, a group vice president at Reed Exhibitions, which organizes the G2E family of events. “AGA SmartBrief is an excellent example of the kinds of cutting-edge tools we offer our exhibitors and attendees to help them get and stay ahead.”
