About Us

The American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA) is an international non-profit trade organization representing the manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, professional service organizations and location owner/operators of the coin-operated amusement industry. AAMA was founded in 1981 by a small group of amusement coin-operated machine manufacturers concerned with the future of their industry. A Board of Directors, selected by its members, governs the AAMA. Committees work with the Association staff to develop programs to promote and protect the industry. Members donate their time, effort, and expertise on a voluntary basis.

AAMA serves its membership through legislative efforts, promotional arenas, foreign business development, and much more. It is the AAMA’s job to serve as the voice for these segments of the coin-operated and out-of-home entertainment amusement machine industry.
