Macau gaming association partners with IAGA for tourism summit

The Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association has signed an agreement with the International Association of Gaming Advisors, awarding the group status as official organising partner for the Macao Tourism and Culture Summit 2015. 

The summit, which will be the first ever gaming forum to see the unveiling of China's ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative, will be held at the Venetian Macao between 17 to 19 November, and will run alongside the Macao Gaming Show.

The agreement between the two influential bodies covers the inaugural 2015 tourism and culture summit, which this year incorporates a wider gaming industry perspective, taking on board the Macau SAR drive for economic diversification in the gaming capital of the world. 

The summit, which will include a number of senior analysts from the IAGA ranks, throws down the discursive gauntlet of: ‘New rules, new vision, new opportunities: how can Macau channel gaming to power a new entertainment mix for tourism and culture?’

The partnership will place special focus on days 2 and 3 of the Macau gaming industry summit, which recently received the significant backing of four of the key departments of the Macau government. 

These specialist sessions will cover the impact of the 2008 downturn in Las Vegas and how the lessons learnt for recovery can be applied to Macau; the banking, funding and investment landscape for gaming opportunities in Macau and Asia; exporting the Macau experience to Asia and the world; and the lure of emerging markets around the Asia Pacific region.
