Anthony Cabot, a member of the Advisory Board for the three-day industry summit at this year's Macao Gaming Show, has called for frank talk about the Macau and neighbouring markets at the crucial autumn gathering at the Asian industry gaming event.
Talking ahead of his body's announcement on the theme and speaker line-up at this year's conference at MGS (Venetian Macao, 17-19 November 2015), Cabot has advised the industry that it should expect "valuable discussions" on the developing markets both in Macau and beyond into the Asian Pacific region as the Chinese government's major investment programme - One Belt One Road - kicks in.
Speaking to media in Las Vegas, Anthony Cabot, a partner at the legal firm Lewis Roca Rothgerber, discussed the direction of this year's MGS summit.
"We all want to hear about the challenges that other regions had during the period of maturation and whether those challenges are applicable to the situation in Macau. Those are the kinds of discussions that are most valuable."
This year’s conference at the Macao Gaming Show delivers an almost perfect piece of timing for gaming and leisure executives from Asia and around the world. The summit takes place in the centre of a region where fundamental changes are currently underway, not just in the opening up of new markets such as Cambodia and potentially Japan, but also through the Beijing-inspired One Belt One Road project. OBOR is likely to transform the entire Asia Pacific region through a programme of vast investment in the infrastructures of key regional hubs from Macau through to the entire ‘Silk Road’ trading area.
