AGEM opening new Europe office
The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) announced this week that it is opening an AGEM Europe office to serve the organization’s growing membership base there. In addition, it announced the appointment of Tracy Cohen to serve as AGEM Director of Europe.
With 16 of AGEM’s 108 member companies based in Europe and another dozen with significant operations there, the AGEM Europe office in North London will serve as the central contact point for current European-based members and prospective new members that want to align with an organization that represents the best suppliers in the global gaming industry.
Cohen currently serves as marketing manager of TCSJOHNHUXLEY, an AGEM-member company based in the UK with 11 offices worldwide that offers a combination of manufacturing strength with innovation and product development - from quality, hand-crafted furniture to cutting-edge technical products. With more than 20 years of experience in the gaming industry, Cohen will serve in a part-time role for AGEM and continue her position for TCSJOHNHUXLEY overseeing trade shows and events, public relations, advertising, sales and marketing communications and product launch activities.
“The opening of an AGEM Europe location will allow us to better serve all global suppliers by having closer contact with a key business region for our members and our European casino customers,” said Thomas A. Jingoli, AGEM president and chief compliance officer for Konami Gaming. “Tracy is well respected throughout gaming and motivated to serve as our eyes and ears in Europe so that AGEM is better equipped to address any issues that affect a broad range of suppliers there.”
“I’m delighted to have been asked to head up the European office for AGEM,” Cohen said. “It’s a great honor and I’m looking forward to working with and supporting the members in the region as well as building the AGEM brand and promoting it throughout Europe and beyond.”
AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater will officially introduce Tracy Cohen at a media event during the upcoming International Casino Exhibition (ICE) at AGEM stand 3080 at Earls Court in London on Jan. 26 at 4 p.m. local time.
