In addition to empowering our clients to create successful destinations, The Innovation Group is dedicated to propelling the gaming and hospitality industry to even greater heights. Working in conjunction with several industry partners, we play an active role in shaping the strategies, technologies and leaders of tomorrow.
Emerging Leaders of Gaming™, a program designed to turn today’s young executives into tomorrow’s industry leaders, was formed by The Innovation Group as a means of giving young professionals that extra advantage in the already competitive gaming, entertainment, leisure, and hospitality industries.
The program launched in 2012, when nominees were selected and then granted access to the array of resources and connections that The Innovation Group has been building for more than 20 years. That year, we hosted our first Emerging Leaders networking event at Global Gaming Expo (G2E). In 2013, G2E and Reed Exhibitions joined forces to host the industry’s inaugural Emerging Leaders Scholarships program.The program has since provided scholarships to young professionals, and provided ongoing networking and career advancement opportunities that bring the Emerging Leaders closer to future senior-level and C-suite management positions.
“Emerging Leaders scholarship programs and events shine an important light on the more than 200 unique careers that the gaming industry provides, supporting the development of professionals who seek to advance their careers in the industry. The Innovation Group’s support of this effort is invaluable to the AGA and to gaming professionals across the country.”
