Japan's burgeoning online gaming scene lands inaugural congress.
What is the Japanese Gaming Congress?
This year's inaugural Japanese Gaming Congress will take place at the Conrad, Tokyo from May 14th-16th. It will be a fantastic opportunity to meet with key players and influencers shaping the Japanese casino market. Analysts predict that this market could be worth $10bn so expect to run into movers and shakers from Government officials, industry leaders and distinguished local and international market representatives.
What will be discussed?
Key topics will include; What regulatory approach will Japan likely deliver expected results?, Future impact on Tourism & Entertainment to Japan, Investment insight into the evolution of IRs and the Asian gaming consumer, Approval/licensing procedures for all gaming manufacturers doing business in Japan and Market Potential - is Japan on the roadmap to deliver the high expectations?
Apart from the opportunity to find out first-hand from important players in the potentially crucial and lucrative Japanese market, there will also be an international flavor to the congress. The Japanese Gaming Congress seems to be more about learning and networking opportunities rather than a trade fair, which has lectures, seminars, workshops and exhibitors. If your company wants to understand the implications of the proposed Japanese casino legislation then it simply cannot afford to miss out on this golden opportunity.
The learning environment is also reciprocal. This is not only a chance for international companies to learn about the proposed Japanese casino legislation. Even more importantly a key element is that Japanese legislators and influencers can learn from suppliers and leading industry figures that have experience overseas.
