Inside Asian Gaming has announced it will launch IAG Japan in January 2019.
IAG Japan will see the company’s highly popular monthly print magazine, IAG, published as a bi-lingual magazine in Japanese and English for distribution throughout Japan, including a number of articles focusing specifically on the country’s burgeoning IR industry each month.
Daily e-newsletter IAG Breakfast Briefing will also be expanded to include a daily Japanese-language version, titled IAG Daily Briefing, to be sent to Japanese readers at midday Japan time every business day.
In launching IAG Japan and IAG Daily Briefing in 2019, Inside Asian Gaming has hired a team of native Japanese-language journalists based on the ground in Japan as well as a high quality Japanese translation team, significantly expanding the company’s Japan presence and expertise.
This exciting news follows Monday’s announcement that IAG has signed an MOU and Cooperation Agreement with Japan’s leading B2B hotel and restaurant industry media brand, Ohta Publications Co., Ltd, that will see the two organizations work together on the development of media to cover Japan’s Integrated Resort (IR) industry.
Ohta Publications is publisher of the highly-acclaimed HOTERES magazine for Japan’s hotel and restaurant industries.
The agreement provides for a number of cooperation initiatives such as content and editorial space exchanges, information and business contact sharing, distribution list development, cross-jurisdictional operations cooperation and business costs minimization.
The Japanese Diet enacted the long-awaited IR Implementation Bill into law in July, paving the way for the government to issue the nation’s first casino licenses. Japan’s first integrated resorts are anticipated to open in the mid-2020s
