At the 2021 Global Gaming Expo, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) announced the recipients of two of its unique awards. Sebastian Salat was selected as the recipient of the Jens Halle Memorial Award Honoring Excellence in Commercial Gaming Professionalism, and Alan Feldman received the Peter Mead Memorial Award Honoring Excellence in Gaming Media and Communications.

Sebastian Salat has accumulated over 35 years of experience in the gaming industry. From his beginnings at Unidesa Gaming, where he spent 12 years as Managing Director, to his work at WMS Gaming, where he became President – International, “Salat has been traveling the world selling gaming machines for decades and was one of the few who could give Jens Halle serious competition,” according to AGEM President David Lucchese. Salat’s stellar reputation “for international customer engagement and the placement of machines in casinos,” paired with his current endeavors in the global video bingo and video slot machine markets as CEO at Zitro, confirm his status as one of the industry’s most successful electronic gaming machine salesmen.

Alan Feldman played a major role in the evolution of the gaming industry, where he has filled several communications and public affairs positions for Mirage Resorts and MGM Resorts International for nearly 30 years. His work included the development of communications strategies to launch new resorts in Las Vegas and around the world and to guide the gaming industry through times of crisis. “Alan has been ‘the voice’ of the industry,” said AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater. “He has earned the respect of industry peers and the media alike with his professionalism and honesty through good times and bad.” Feldman maintains his commitment to responsible gaming as the current Chairman of the International Center for Responsible Gaming and as Distinguished Fellow in Responsible Gaming for the University of Nevada – Las Vegas International Gaming Institute.

Both Salat and Feldman were selected for their respective awards because they were found to embody the professionalism and integrity demonstrated by the namesakes of their awards, according to AGEM.
