The eyes of the world have been on our industry in Las Vegas this week as the Global Gaming Expo has taken center stage around the city. Convention attendees, thought leaders and media have been chronicling the newest – and the future – in gaming.
A lot has changed in our industry as we adapt to changing consumer interests.
But one of the biggest changes I have seen since joining the Company two decades ago is that our industry is now seen as a critical part of Main Street.
The Wall Street Journal reported on this progression yesterday and included my observation that the jobs in our industry “are every bit as patriotic as auto worker jobs.” (See the full story here.)
I know you share my pride in being part of this important and vital industry and in the fact that our Company has provided strong leadership in bringing the industry to mainstream. The important work we have done, and are doing, in being responsible corporate citizens is informing how communities across our country are learning, and knowing, about our industry.
As Election Day approaches, Las Vegas and our industry will take center stage as we host the last of the Presidential Debates.
More on that in the next CEO Space.
As ever, thanks for all you do.
