he event will provide a major and timely opportunity for the Japanese casino sector to evaluate the potential of the marketplace.
“We have enjoyed a strong relationship with Japanese businesses at the Macao Gaming Show, with the country represented on the show floor consistently since we launched,” commented Fatima Maria Nunes, Secretary of MGEMA, which organises MGS. “The Japanese market is such an important development that it will certainly find itself on the Summit schedule here in November, and we are expecting a larger response from Japanese visitors.”
As Japan continues to edge closer to legalising casino gaming and recent soundings have signalled a significant shift towards a fresh perspective, MGS organizers will be allocating a special area for casino and gaming related service companies from Japan.
Targeted sectors for the Japanese zone will include machine designers and manufacturers, investment and finance providers, gaming advisors and analysts.
“The entire world is watching the Japanese debate and with great interest. Many of our members have direct corporate and financial links with Japan, and the hope is that the market will open up and deliver wide-scale opportunities to the casino industry and all its service and support sectors,” Nunes remarked.
