DICJ Director Paulo Martins Chan, MGM China Executive Director Pansy Ho and Sands China President Dr Wilfred Wong are among the key speakers at the MGS Summit today as the MGS Entertainment Show 2017 gets underway at The Venetian Macao.

Mr Chan will launch the Summit – to be held for the first time inside the main exhibition hall at MGS – at 11:00 with a keynote address titled “Mitigate risk, enhance supervision” before Ms Ho and Dr Wong follow with talks on the Belt and Road Initiative as it relates to Macau and the gaming industry.

The day’s Summit will also close with a high-powered panel discussion featuring some of the Macau junket industry’s biggest hitters as Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association Chairman Jay Chun is joined by Suncity Group CEO Alvin Chau and Meg-Star CEO Thomas Pang to discuss “The Integration and development of technology and VIP services.”

More than 100 exhibitors will take part in this year’s MGS Entertainment Show as it celebrates its 5th anniversary since debuting at the same venue in 2013.

A notable addition to the show will be a brand new daily newspaper, MGS Daily. Published by Inside Asian Gaming on all three show days, MGS Daily will be displayed and distributed at entry points and around the exhibition hall providing all the latest news, exhibitor information and key attractions at MGS Entertainment Show 2017.
