AGA was recognised and won the Gold Stevie Award in the 2019 American Business Awards for its communication campaign.
US.- The American Gaming Association (AGA) has been recognised for its communication campaign in 2018. The entity received the American Business Awards’ Gold Stevie Award for the best communications campaign of 2018.
Last year, the association worked aggressively to educate policymakers, sports stakeholders and the public about the failures of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), and make the case for legal, regulated sports betting in the United States. The association saw one of the results of this campaign as the Supreme Court revoked the Act that prevented states from offering the gambling modality and mentioned AGA in its May 2018 ruling.
AGA effectively quantified the size of the existing illegal sports betting market and the economic opportunities enabled by legal sports betting for sports leagues, states and sovereign tribal nations.
“Our work with the industry to promote the social and economic benefits of legal sports betting last year paid off, and jurisdictions and consumers are now seeing the results firsthand through increased consumer protections, new tax revenue for state and local governments and dozens of private partnerships between leagues, teams and gaming companies,” said Bill Miller, AGA’s president and chief executive officer.
“This distinction is a great honour, and we look forward to continuing our work to enable legal, regulated sports betting to compete with the dangerous illegal market.”
The American Gaming Association is the premier national trade group representing the US$261 billion U.S. casino industry, which supports 1.8 million jobs nationwide. AGA members include commercial and tribal casino operators, gaming suppliers and other entities affiliated with the gaming industry. It is the mission of the AGA to achieve sound policies and regulations consistent with casino gaming’s modern appeal and vast economic contributions
