The self-nominations window for the gaming industry’s most prestigious awards is now open.
Returning for the ninth year, the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas will once again recognize the strongest performers in the Americas region across the previous 12 months.
“Last year’s edition of the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas received so much interest, so of course we are very excited to start the process for the 2022 event,” said Julian Perry, Editor-in-Chief of Gaming America.
“It’s always interesting to see what companies say in their self-nominations, as there are so many impressive things they do throughout the year that we don’t always read about in the news,” he added.
Suppliers and operators have until May 15 to submit their self-nominations. To do so, they must simply go to globalgamingawards.com/vegas/ and fill in the short self-nominations form.
