MGS Entertainment Show 2019 Ramps Up the Glitz

One of the MSAR’s most awaited annual events, connecting a variety industries, MGS Entertainment Show steps into the limelight from the 12th to 14th November in Cotai Expo Hall A & B of The Venetian Macao.

More than just an exhibition of the most advanced and innovative entertainment products and a forum for experts to present the latest news, investments, regulatory processes and laws, MGS is the mirror from which the city revises itself on a daily basis. A dynamic town continually growing by betting on its overarching goal of transforming itself into the world capital of entertainment. A city where tourism contributes to the wellbeing of citizens, visitors and tourists alike as well as entrancing them with centuries of co-mingled East-West dialogue, evident in Macau’s rich architecture, culture and UNESCO-acclaimed gastronomy.

The strong bet of the MGS Entertainment Show, after six consecutive editions, is that it will continue to reinforce the aspects that highlight the future of the city – without, of course, forgetting its past, its soul.

Inviting experts to speak at the MGS Summit on issues related to the development of the entertainment industry around the world but especially in the Asia Pacific region, the Summit seeks to consolidate its leadership in the area of knowledge, so that strategies and investments can be planned on a timely, cost effective basis. And by showing off the best of it, MGS Entertainment Show remains the one-stop exhibition that enables information to be collected, experiences to be shared – and business transacted.

New Era Innovative Technology & Intellectual Entertainment – the organisers of MGS Entertainment Show – held a press conference today (26th September) to announce major news.

This year, MGS is divided into seven distinct areas: Leisure Technology, Gaming Equipment, E-sports, Security Systems, Integrated Resorts (IR’s), Procurement Fair, Hotel Supplies Securities Systems and Environment Protection & Sustainability.

Getting bigger

Jay Chun – Chairman of the Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA) – revealed that this year the exhibition floor will not only occupy nearly 20,000square metres but that a special partnership with Macau Telecom Company, Ltd. (CTM) has translated into it becoming a 5G technology partner of the event.

Following the successful conclusion of last year’s Global Digital Entertainment Summit jointly organised by MGS and Sina Games Channel, said Mr. Chun, the digital gaming industry will be the hotspot of this year’s Summit once again.

The Summit – featuring four major sections, namely ‘Transformation and Innovation of the 2019 Gaming Industry’ ; ‘Sina Asia E-sports Industry Summit’ ; ‘Sail Scientifically and Survival and Challenges of Overseas Living’ ; and ‘Future Development Trends of 5G Cloud Gaming’ – seeks to create a “professional and authoritative communication platform for both gaming and e-sports industries, as well as assisting enterprises to export new technologies, skills and concepts, and promote the positive and sustainable development of the industry.”

This year, MGS will work with ICBC for the first time to host a seminar that focus on topic of “ICBC facilitates Macao’s apposite diversification of economic development by supporting the growth of local SMEs, driving the development trend and impacting smart finance”.

Liao Qihui, General Manager of Nam Kwong International Conference and Exhibition Co., Ltd. said: “Under the general background of a new round of opening to the outside world, moderate increase in the import of foreign high-technology products is beneficial to the formation of domestic competitive market, and will promote the industrial upgrading. Therefore, the activity “technology living supplies import promotion” is born at such a right moment of this exhibition. This import promotion activity is strongly supported by the Trade Development Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce. The activity will propagandize and recommend China International Import Expo. By virtue of the entertainment technology exhibition platform, it will strive to boost the open, inclusive, generous, balanced, win-win economic globalization and the construction of open global economy.”

The Summit

The ups and downs of an industry that continue to shape the new Macau towards the main goal of becoming a world centre of tourism and leisure. Important questions that make daily news will be answered and debated; namely, as a vital part of the GBA plan, how can the city attract outflowing talents and additional quality investors? Development direction of integrated resorts will be another highlight of the Summit.
