Tenth Annual Survey of Casino Executives to Be Conducted by Gaming Industry Observer and Bristol Associates

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) - The gaming industry's premier newsletter and its leading executive search firm will conduct their tenth annual Internet-based national survey of casino executives to gauge how the casino industry attracts, retains and motivates its executive talent.

The tenth survey, produced by Bristol Associates, Inc., a Los Angeles-based executive search firm, and Gaming Industry Observer, an award-winning newsletter acclaimed for spotting and analyzing crucial trends in the casino industry, comes during a period of unprecedented challenges for the gaming industry, both internationally and across the United States.

To participate in the survey, visit www.bristolassoc.com, go to the "Casino Gaming" page and click on the "Take the Executive Satisfaction Survey" button. Gaming Industry Observer will analyze the results and report them in a future issue of the prestigious newsletter.

Spectrum Gaming Group's Gaming Industry Observer has published the analyses of results of the first nine Annual Executive Satisfaction Surveys. "Now in our tenth year, this survey is polling executives during a period of continued economic distress," said Michael Pollock, managing director of Spectrum Gaming Group and publisher of Gaming Industry Observer. "Their views are more essential than ever, particularly as employers still need to retain and motivate talented executives."

Bristol Associates President James J. Bright said: "This survey has proven to be a critical tool for our clients to ensure that they are providing the tools, the environment and the rewards that executives need, and that should prove to be especially true this year."

Participants in the survey again will receive a complimentary copy of the results.
