Loveman, Fahrenkopf Lead Names as Hall of Fame Inductees

The man behind the world’s largest gaming company, the former head of the industry’s top trade association, one of the Strip’s—and the world’s—most spectacular headliners and one of the world’s top culinary artists make up the 2013 class for the American Gaming Association’s Gaming Hall of Fame.

Gary Loveman, chairman, CEO and president of Caesars Entertainment Corporation; Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., leader of the AGA for its first 18 years; Celine Dion, a performer who led the rebirth of the headlining show in Las Vegas; and Guy Savoy, the creative force behind one of the Strip’s most memorable culinary experiences, will be honored for their outstanding contributions to the growth and stature of the gaming industry.

The 25th annual Gaming Hall of Fame Charity Gala and Induction Ceremony will be held on Thursday, November 14 at Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the National Center for Responsible Gaming.

“The gaming industry is nothing without its innovators, artists and advocates driving it forward, and we are proud to honor Gary, Frank, Celine and Guy as talents who have helped transform our business into the entertainment juggernaut it is today,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the AGA. 

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 honor. More than 70 people have been inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame since its inception in 1989.
