Celebrating its 16th anniversary in 2023, the Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner returns to Macau and The Grand Ballroom at MGM Macau on Friday 3 November.
It’s been two years now since IAG’s annual Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner last graced Macau’s shores and four years since it did so without the specter of COVID-19 lurking in the shadows. But with those days now consigned to the annals of history, the time is right to bring the Power 50 back to Macau again – for now at least – after it was held at City of Dreams Manila in 2022.
This year, the 16th Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner will be held in The Grand Ballroom at MGM MACAU on Friday 3 November, with MGM recently named as official venue sponsor.
The decision to bring the Power 50 back to Macau acknowledges the stunning recovery Macau’s gaming industry has enjoyed since the easing of border restrictions in January. IAG thanks MGM for its generous support.
A beacon of style in the Macau skyline, MGM MACAU is the ultimate style statement. The luxury integrated resort has achieved Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star recognition for the eighth consecutive year. Aside from its guest rooms and suites, guests can also experience a number of distinguishing features, including the European-inspired Grande Praça, a Five-Star rating spa, seven signature restaurants and bars, and full-functioning venues for conferences and events.
Inside, every detail of the luxury integrated resort tells a story of passion and artistry, unified to create a truly inspiring experience.
Kenneth Feng, President of MGM, said, “MGM is honored to be the venue sponsor of this annual celebration and hopes to cater an event that will engender insightful exchanges within the industry. We look forward to welcoming peers in the region with our top-notch hospitality services and to celebrating the remarkable achievements of influential industry icons here in MGM MACAU.”
IAG Vice Chairman and CEO, Andrew W Scott, added, “Macau is back and so is the Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner! While it was wonderful to have the event in Manila last year, and we plan to hold it in Manila again in 2024, the fact we can hold the event in its full glory in Macau this year is a wonderful signal to the industry.
“The Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner never missed a year during the pandemic, but of course it wasn’t quite as big as it should have been. This year, with travel across the region now completely open, we’re going all out to create the biggest and best Power 50 Gala Dinner ever!”
Although the Power 50 has returned to its spiritual home in 2023, IAG looks forward to the event continuing to move around the Asia-Pacific region in the future with plans to hold the Gala Dinner in Macau during odd-numbered years and outside Macau in even-numbered years.
Since its inception in 2008, the Asian Gaming Power 50 has established a reputation as the definitive guide to the most influential people in the Asian gaming industry over the preceding 12 months.
The Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner will see IAG count down this year’s “Big 50” while guests enjoy a fine dining meal, lively entertainment and the company of many industry peers and influencers. The list will be announced in a variety of interesting ways by renowned VIPs.
