More than 190 exhibitors have so far registered to take part in this year’s edition of the Macau-produced casino industry trade exhibition and conference known as the MGS Entertainment Show, says Jay Chun (pictured centre, front row), the head of the event’s main promoter.
The three-day event features a casino industry trade exhibition and conference. This year marks the seventh edition of MGS Entertainment Show, to be held from November 12 to 14 at the Venetian Macao casino resort.
“Basically all the Macau-registered gaming equipment suppliers are going to [attend] the show, plus the other exhibitors from neighbouring countries,” said Mr Chun during a Thursday press conference about MGS Entertainment Show 2019. But the tally of these gaming-related service providers and equipment makers that has registered so far to take part in the trade show is not yet final, as registration will only end in October, according to the event’s promoter.
Mr Chun is the chairman of the trade show’s primary promoter, the Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA). He is also the chairman of Hong Kong-listed gaming equipment and casino services firm Paradise Entertainment Ltd, which makes and sells casino equipment under the LT Game brand and is a major exhibitor at MGS Entertainment Show.
The trade show has, since last year, adopted a new name in Chinese that translates as the “Macau Leisure Technology Show”. For this year’s edition, the exhibition floor for the event spans 20,000 square metres (215,278 sq feet), with the content of the exhibition segment to focus on technology, procurement items for integrated resort operators, cultural tourism, gaming equipment, hotel supplies and security-related products and services, according to information provided by MGEMA.
The annual trade show also features several conference sessions described as “summits”. For this year’s edition, the summits touch on both gaming and non-gaming topics, the latter including subjects such as the development of smart finance, e-Sports, and cloud gaming trends.
Some of the gaming-related conferences at the trade show are themed on “how to ensure a stable increase in mass-gaming revenue”, and “how to improve responsible gaming measures” and the nascent gaming industry in Japan, Mr Chun said at the news conference.
The MGS Entertainment Show is, for the second year in a row, jointly organised by MGEMA with some Chinese state-owned enterprises, namely Nam Kwong Culture and Creativity Industry Co Ltd, and China National Machinery Industry International Co Ltd.
