Clarion sees increased support for Japan Gaming Congress

21 March 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The 2017 edition of JgC was the largest event of its type held in Japan, attracting delegates from both local and international markets. Clarion Gaming has confirmed increased support for the event in 2018 with major sponsors including Galaxy Entertainment, Melco Resorts Entertainment, MGM Resorts, SJM Holdings Macau, Transact, JCM Global, Hard Rock, Caesars Entertainment, Clairvest and Konami.

During this week, Caesars Entertainment President and CEO Mark Frissora was in Osaka and held a meeting with Governor Ichiro Matsui and Mayor Hirofumi Yoshimura. Earlier this month, Caesars became an Official Partner with Osaka in its bid to host the 2025 World Expo in Yumeshima next to the planned site for the major IR. The meeting with the governor and the expo sponsorship demonstrated Caesars' strong intention to bid for the Yumeshima site. Caesars is, in fact, the fourth international IR operator to become Osaka's Official Partner on the expo bid, following Melco, MGM and Hard Rock.

Gaming organizations targeting the significant business opportunities in the emergent Japanese integrated resort sector are encouraged to participate at this year's Japan Gaming Congress.

Rory Credland, Event Director at Clarion Gaming, explained, "The current state of play in Japan could potentially see a gaming bill pass in June, thereby enabling a number of licenses to be issued, and in the process, create one of the most significant jurisdictions in world gaming.

"JgC will provide a platform for delegates to meet with the prefectures and decision-makers behind the bill and gain some real up-to-the-minute insight as to what the legislation will look like, bearing in mind a preview has not been released."

Japan Gaming Congress 2018 will focus on a variety of topics, including updates to the much-anticipated legislation, including bills related to "Problem Gaming" and general IR regulations, which are estimated to be announced during 2018.

In addition to these tracks, the event will look at setting realistic expectations on the positive impact an IR will have on the local communities.

Some other key topics will include:
  • Government and regulatory updates.
  • Understanding the customer profile.
  • Hear several key operators share their vision.
  • Focus on the hotel and non gaming elements of an IR.
  • What is the global perspective?
  • What are the opportunities for local communities and businesses?
  • What will be the economic impact?
  • Learn from others about the RFP process.
  • Picking the right spot for an IR.
  • What does the future hold for gaming in Japan?
The full conference agenda is now available at the website.
