Why attend Japan Gaming Congress?

As Japan enters into a new era having legalised gaming, Clarion Events is delighted to be hosting the second edition of JgC in Tokyo on May 10-11 2017 at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo. With an estimated $40bn market at stake the potential to be one of the major players has all the global gaming groups vying for a position in the lucrative market. The Japan Gaming Congress is a two-day educational forum that will offer a clear, practical insight and understanding into the casino legislation in Japan. With a relatively short time to go before the first licences are issued now is the time to fully understand the potential complex nature of IR Casinos in one of the potential superpowers in Asia.

Topics to be covered this year include:

  • Building a MICE economy in conjunction with IR projects – Where’s the benefit?

  • Licensing regulations – What will they look like?

  • Problem gaming: What’s the solution? – Best practice in responsible gambling

  • IR locations – Understanding the choice between rural and tourist regions

  • Financing IR projects – Best practice in grouping funds
