NORCROSS, GA -- The Georgia Amusement and Music Operators Association will hold its annual convention and trade show Sept. 5-6 at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast in Norcross, GA. Companies interested in exhibiting, and anybody who would like to become a sponsor of the two-day event, should contact GAMOA executive director Christina Kaiser at (770) 408-0384.

Last year's conference attracted more than 30 exhibitors and 100 operators. A central theme among Georgia's industry members is the state's new redemption regulations. A new law has changed the code for regulating Class B coin-operated amusement machines. The measure, which went into effect a year ago, affected games in which players earn points or tickets that can be redeemed for merchandise on the premises, known as "adult redemption" in industry parlance. The law classifies skill games as Class A machines, and those that accumulate points as Class B. | SEE STORY

Established more than three decades ago, the Georgia Amusement and Music Operators Association works to improve the business atmosphere and regulatory environment for the state's coin-op amusement industry.
