The GGB Gaming & Technology Awards are the industry’s standard in this field, recognizing excellence in innovation and practical application in all gaming disciplines. The awards were presented to the winners at last month’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.
“The submissions for the GGB Gaming & Technology Awards were incredible this year,” says Roger Gros, publisher of Global Gaming Business magazine, which administers the awards program. “The amazing products were all at the cutting edge of technology that serves all facets of the gaming industry. An interesting trend this year was an increased emphasis on non-gaming technology to use in the integrated resorts of the future. The GGB Gaming & Technology Awards surely recognize all the trends and innovation being made in the industry today.”
Judges for the awards were Claudia Winkler, president of GHI Solutions; Rob Russell, gaming analyst, Regulatory Management Counselors, P.C.; Frank Neborsky, CEO, Power Strategies; Gerhard Burda, president and CEO, ESCAPES Advisory Services; and Cliff Paige, slot director, South Point Casino Resort, Las Vegas.
