Industry Legends to Join Gaming Hall of Fame at Gala EventAccording to a recent announcement from the American Gaming Association, the AGA is about to induct a full slate of prominent Las Vegas entertainment and gaming industry titans into the AGA Hall of Fame.

This year’s panel of inductees includes 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.

Together, the AGA confirms, these icons make up the 2013 class for the American Gaming Association’s Gaming Hall of Fame.

Specifically, those being inducted this year are:

  • 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
  • Guy Savoy, the creative force behind one of the Strip’s most memorable culinary experiences

All 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, Nov. 14 at PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG).

“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,” says Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the AGA.
