Gaming & Leisure Magazine Announces First Gaming Industry Product Interoperability Award

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - Gaming & Leisure Magazine, the principle management periodical for gaming and hospitality industry technology leaders, is sponsoring the Gaming Industry Product Interoperability Award, a first time award from within the G&L Community.

The award will be given to the product that best exemplifies the highest standard of system interoperability, defined as the ability for a system to exchange and make use of information with other systems. Gaming & Leisure Community's Advisory Board will judge all entries.

The award winner will be announced at the 2009 G&L Roundtable on November 16, and the award recipient will be authorized to display the official award logo and will be provided the opportunity to address the CIOs at the private G&L Roundtable. In addition, the winner will be featured in the winter edition of Gaming & Leisure Magazine.

Jeannie Caruso, Publisher of G&L Magazine and host of the G&L Roundtable, said, "The concept for offering the G&L Gaming Industry Product Interoperability Award was born out of the white paper chronology written by leaders in the gaming community in 2008-2009 G&L Magazine editorial. It seems appropriate to take this dialogue to the next level by recognizing the provider who most exemplifies the highest standard of system interoperability. Of course the significance of the award is the key gaming industry technology leaders comprised within the G&L Advisory Board will choose the recipient. We're excited to offer this award and continuously humbled to be a part of the amazing industry thought leaders within the G&L Community."

The nomination packet must be completed and received by 9am PDT October 1, 2009. Submission instructions can be found within the nomination packet. The form is available on G&L magazine's home page at:
