he date revision follows consultation over the last two weeks, with MGS able to negotiate its original preference of November 15-17 following the slot’s late availability at the Venetian.
“This is excellent news for the show. The growth of the MICE program in Macau has meant that there is strong competition for exhibition slots and as a major international show, we have a number of factors we need to consider,” remarked an MGEMA spokesperson.
Boasting strong growth in the international marketplace, the recent 2015 edition of MGS attracted a record 168 exhibitors, plus representations in the separate French, Korean and Macau pavilions.
MGS occupied a record breaking 12,000 sqm of stand space, nearly 20% larger than the previous year, establishing itself as one of the top three independent exhibitions in the Macau SAR.
“MGS has established itself as a traditional November event, equidistant in timing between G2E Las Vegas and ICE in London. We feel compelled to maintain that positioning and to stay focused on delivering Asia’s primary event to both a domestic and international audience,” remarked the organizers.
