Discussion will focus on casino gaming’s commitment to working with minority and women-owned businesses

As a part of its national Get to Know Gaming campaign, the American Gaming Association (AGA) will host a roundtable event at the National Minority Supplier Development Council Conference & Business Opportunity Exchange (NMSDC) on Tuesday, October 24th to highlight casino gaming’s commitment to working with minority and women-owned businesses.

New research completed by Spectrum Gaming Group and commissioned by AGA shows that the casino gaming industry supports 350,000 small business jobs. The report, The Gaming Industry’s Impact on Small Business Development in the United States, examines nearly a dozen U.S. gaming markets and assesses casino gaming’s direct and indirect impact on local, small businesses. Researchers concluded that gaming’s widespread impact is felt in markets across the country, but has the largest impact in small to mid-sized communities where local businesses integrate into gaming operations.
