There has become an increased demand for electronic products and with the vast growth expected in the region, building relationships at this event is critical for both suppliers and operators alike.
How important is Macau's market for your company?
Macau is truly regarded as leader of Asia in gaming and a global benchmark. Emerging markets see Macau as success model and attempt to duplicate its success. Despite the emphasis on VIP table games, electronic gaming has grown steadily over the years, and will continue to play an important role in this growing region. Asia is a critical market for Aruze, and Macau is an example of our commitment to being best of service and product for the region.
Macau is currently considered the leading international gaming market surpassing Las Vegas. Do you think that it is a market with options to keep on growing?
With the economic strength of the region, Macau has become a destination that attracts Mainland Chinese as well as other global visitors. As more provinces liberalize their access to Macau, the market will grow exponentially and become an even more sought-after global destination. The investment in these facilities and the infrastructure provides a world-class gaming destination that will continue to impress as Macau expands.
