“To fit the criteria for a Qualified Buyer, visitors are required to supply MGS with a letter detailing their involvement in the gaming/leisure/hospitality sectors. This level of verification serves to ensure that our international visitors at MGS are authentic buyers who have influence on the decision-making process."
She added: "We are very pleased with the response we have received from exhibitors, visitors, dignitaries and VIPs to the second MGS which is being held between 18th - 20th November at the Venetian Macao. There is a real sense of energy and anticipation for the second MGS and everything it has to offer in terms of new products, new opportunities, networking and access to the real influencers and decision makers in Asia.”

“The panel of event organizers and co–organizers behind MGS are considered 'insiders' of the Asian gaming industry and are being heavily supported by all of the regional players. I am confident that MGS will provide a professional platform for the gaming and hospitality sectors based in Asia."
