Why attend

As Japan enters into a new era having legalised gaming, Clarion Gaming is delighted to be hosting it's third edition of JgC in Tokyo on May 10-11 2018 at the Conrad, 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 in the 2018 agenda include:

  • Maximising non-gaming side of IRs and opportunities for the local community
  • Investment and Finance - Best practice for constructing consortiums
  • Operator vision for the market
  • Responsible gaming
  • Security
