Executives at Travellers International Hotel Group Inc, the operator of the Resorts World Manila casino resort (pictured) in the Philippines, say they hope to expand the resort’s membership base to 3 million customers by the end of the year.
“We have 2.7 million members for Resorts World [Manila]: it was very clear that we had to expand through our database. It’s very important to develop not just the gaming but the family destination,” Travellers’ chief operating officer Stephen Reilly told a media briefing in Manila, according to a report in local media outlet Business World.
The resort’s corporate communications director Owen Cammayo added that it was “possible” to raise the membership to 3 million within the year, “driven by the total industry, not just gaming”.
Travellers International reported a 46.4-percent decline year-on-year in net profit for the three months to June 30.
The firm’s promotional allowances – which include revenue share with junket operators – leapt 252 percent to PHP1.07 billion (US$22.9 million) in the second quarter of 2015, compared to PHP304.27 million a year earlier.
Travellers International is a venture between Philippine-based Alliance Global Group Inc and Genting Hong Kong Ltd. It developed and operates the Resorts World Manila casino and hotel complex next to Manila International Airport.
