Beacon Events ready for Asian Casino & Gaming Congress

16 July 2010

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With Singapore’s two Integrated Resorts on the market, experts speak about the impact on gaming operators and countries’ brands.

The Asian Casino & Gaming Congress, set to take place from 5th to 7th of October, 2010 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, gathers together an elite mix of gaming analysts, investors and operators to discuss how the new model is working and how increased competition is changing the landscape of gaming in Asia. Following the opening of the two new casino resorts in Singapore, this congress is a perfect opportune time for delegates to assess the current state of play in each of the current and emerging jurisdictions on whether regulation is achieving its desired objectives in Asia and if operators are reaping the rewards they expected.

“Singapore’s approach to casino gaming legalization is now acting as a catalyst for possible future gaming-industry legalization and liberalization in many other countries, particularly in Asia” said Jonathan Galaviz, a Partner at Globalysis Ltd, a highly respected tourism sector analysis.

Galaviz is one of the many high profile speakers due to speak at the Asian Casino & Gaming Congress this October. He will chair the first day of the event, which profiles current and emerging gaming jurisdictions, covering the particulars of each regulatory framework, market entry strategies and investment potential. Among the jurisdictions to be discussed by market experts are Singapore, Macau, the Philippines, Indochina, Korea, Japan and India.

Other Singapore experts include the author of a book about the motivations and potential implications for allowing the IRs in Singapore, Dr Derek da Cunha (‘Singapore Places Its Bets’), and Tim Riches, CEO & AP Growth Officer of Singapore’s Futurebrand, who has been interviewed on CNBC on the topic of Chinese Brands entering the market.

Other speakers throughout the three days include representatives from AB Leisure Group, Asian Coast Development, Bloombury Investments, Casino Mahjong, Goldman Sachs, Harrah’s, Kangwon Land, MGM Macau, Nagacorp, Sociedade de Jogos de Macau and University of Nevada Las Vegas (Singapore).

Rosalind Wade, General Manager of Beacon Events says that “Gaming is an ever growing industry and a significant contributor to a country’s economy. This Congress allow regulators, investors, operators and suppliers to come together and learn how each jurisdiction’s regulatory structure and market fundamentals affect investment decisions, and also how to best manage and market a gaming operation in Asia.
