The three-day MGS Summit promises to bring interesting and valuable perspectives from a variety of voices in the broad-based gaming and entertainment industry. The Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA) is pleased that many exciting speakers have confirmed their participation in the summit. The guiding theme of this year’s show and summit is smart cities; and the lineup – with speakers of varying backgrounds, from government officials to marketing consultants to representatives of major tech giants — promises to offer something valuable for everyone.
Mr. Leo Liu, general manager of Alibaba Cloud in Hong Kong, will be a highlight of the summit’s first-day lineup. He will be speaking on the effects of the big data revolution on the smart-city model that is sweeping China. With Alibaba Cloud recently signing an agreement with the Macau SAR government to bring cloud infrastructure into Macau’s public services, big data and cloud computing are permanently changing the ways we interact with our city and each other. Affecting residents and tourists, students and businesses, the cloud-integrated smart city is the future.
With the parliament of Japan voting last year to stimulate the country’s economy and tourism industry by legalizing gaming, the new market in Japan has attracted the interest of several large gaming companies. A highlight on the third day of the MGS Summit is Mike Tanji’s talk on the development of new gaming markets in Asia, specifically Japan. With his training in law and broad background in government, the IT industry, gaming and entertainment, gained in Japan and the US, Mr. Tanji’s insights will be valuable to anyone with an interest in newly opening markets.
