More than 1,000 votes were cast for the 1st IRAA Awards which saw more than 100 people in attendance to witness the birth of this new industry initiative.

The IRAA Awards recognize the valuable and meaningful contribution to our industry of many of its executives, from young up-and-coming Senior Managers and Assistant Directors right up to Senior Vice Presidents and even some C-level executives. The contributions of these executives have been highlighted by the difficult times the industry is currently suffering with the global pandemic.

The 2nd IRAA Awards will be held in 2022, with details to be announced via the IRAA website at iracademyasia.com.

IAG would like to congratulate the inaugural winners and to thank our sponsors, who helped make the event a reality. Sands China was Venue Sponsor, and IGT and Scientific Games were both Platinum Sponsors of the 1st IRAA Awards.

Membership of the IRAA remains open at no charge to any person who meets the eligibility criteria. The main eligibility criteria is working in the legal land-based Asian IR or gaming industry in a gaming or non-gaming capacity, for an operator, supplier or professional services provider, for a minimum of two years.
