Macau government offices attend MGS Entertainment Show opening

There was a show of strength from the Governments of the Central People's Republic and Macau SAR at the opening day of the MGS Entertainment Show. Officials from both governments were out in force to open the fourth edition of the exhibition on 15 November at the Venetian Macao. The event, which is owned and run by Macau's gaming trade association MGEMA, opened in encouraging style, featuring its highest number of exhibitors (170+), covering an increased floorspace of almost 13,000 (+8%). Early visitor numbers for the first morning were in line with last year's record-setting show.

A total of six Macau Government offices attended the opening ceremony and tour of the exhibition floor, with Beijing represented at MGS by its Economic Affairs Department Liaison Office in Macao. The 10-strong party from the two Governments confirms the growing relationship between MGS and the legislators, a partnership which ranges from sponsorship for the exhibition to grant aid schemes to visitors from overseas.

Other keynote attendees this year include representatives from the Tribal Gaming sector in the United States; the Isle of Man Government and the influential advisors association IAGA. Among the countries showing a marked increase in attendance are Israel and Japan.

Jay Chun, Chairman of the MGEMA, which owns and organises the show, said: "It's vital for the growth of the MGS Entertainment Show that the Government, both here in Macau and in the PRC, backs our aspirations and vision. Their attendance in numbers reinforces our direction and adds great confidence going forward.
