The Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA) has signed an agreement with the International Association of Gaming Advisors (IAGA), awarding the group status as official organizing partner for the innovative Macao Tourism and Culture Summit 2015.

T

he summit, which will be the first ever gaming forum to see the unveiling of the People’s Republic of China Government's ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative, will be held at The Venetian Macao Resort-Hotel on November 17-19, and will run alongside the Macao Gaming Show.

The agreement between the two influential bodies covers the inaugural 2015 tourism and culture summit, which this year incorporates a wider gaming industry perspective, taking on board the Macau SAR drive for economic diversification in the gaming capital of the world. The summit, which will include a number of senior analysts from the IAGA ranks, throws down the discursive gauntlet of: ‘New rules, new vision, new opportunities: how can Macau channel gaming to power a new entertainment mix for tourism and culture?’

The MGEMA/IAGA partnership will place special focus on Days 2 and 3 of the Macau gaming industry summit, which recently received the significant backing of four of the key departments of the Macau SAR Government. These specialist sessions will cover the impact of the 2008 downturn in Las Vegas and how the lessons learnt for recovery can be applied to Macau; the banking, funding and investment landscape for gaming opportunities in Macau and Asia; exporting the Macau experience to Asia and the world; and the lure of emerging markets around the Asia Pacific region.

Welcoming IAGA on board for this year’s summit was MGEMA Secretary General Fatima Maria Nunes, said: “This year’s summit is all about new directions, new vision, new opportunities - that’s not just an event strapline, it’s one that sits at the heart of the ambitions of the MGEMA and the Macao Gaming Show. We have set our sights on growth, development and cultural exchange, and IAGA is an excellent partner in this vision. We are looking at exchanging the culture of ideas, of business, of innovations - and this partnership fits into these objectives. We look forward to welcoming IAGA not just to the MGEMA family, but also to the Gateway to Asia. They understand the industry, its legal framework, its politics - and they understand the issues we all face on a global platform. This is a partnership that continues the process of opening Macau up to the world.”
