JgC comes back to Tokyo this October!

On 7th – 9th October, the Japan Gaming Congress will be bringing together law makers and thought-leaders from Japan and around the globe to discuss the legislative and cultural framework for regulating land based gaming in Japan.

Last year’s event set an industry precedent with a panel of some of the world’s top international operators including Las Vegas Sands, Bloomberry Resorts, MGM and Wynn all sharing their views on the proposed IR plans.

2015’s event will build on that by bringing the key local and central legislative influencers into the conversation, allowing you to get a complete view on what the future Japanese MICE economy will look like.

The IR Bill is widely expected to be discussed in the second Diet session in early October, to stay up to date make sure you download our informative whitepapers. Click here for more
