The Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA), the influential trade body behind the Macao Gaming Show, will confirm at tomorrow’s opening ceremony that the rapidly expanding international exhibition and summit ‘is here to stay’. Jay Chun, Chairman of the organisation, will deliver the key message concerning the show’s long term plan when he officially declares the 2015 edition of MGS open for business.
Ahead of the declaration, MGEMA officials will be joined on the ceremony platform by representatives of the Macau SAR government, government agency and sponsor the Macao Foundation, the show’s co-organising groups and senior figures from Macau’s entertainment and gaming industry.
During his opening speech, Mr Chun will confirm the association’s long term backing for the Macao Gaming Show and its associated summit, and draw reference to the exhibition’s commitment to extending its remit by supporting the region’s objective to diversify its economy.
In his commentary, Mr Chun will declare: “This year is only MGS’ third showing – still relatively young for an exhibition on the international stage. However, we are a show with huge aspirations, and we look forward to a long term future ahead of us. And as such, MGS can start to express itself in a bolder, more confident way. And that means driving our focus, not just on the most significant entertainment developments and trends in the core industry, but also beyond that and into broader business opportunities in Macau and the entire Asia Pacific region.”
