Junkets of the future: MGS Summit to tackle junkets debate

As Macau charts its course in line with Mainland China and the SAR Government’s plan for economic diversity in the coming years,

there remains considerable focus on the impact of VIP players and junkets both from the perspective of the city’s history and how they will be positioned in the future.


As one of the most radical and provocative forums for discussion, the MGS Summit will explore a fresh focus for junkets when it takes place in conjunction with the MGS exhibition at the Venetian Macau in November (15-17).


Part of the ‘New Frontiers’ theme considered throughout the conference, the junket session will form part of more than 15 issues addressed by noteworthy speakers drawn from governments officials, industry pioneers and key operators from across the globe.


‘The Regulation of Junket Representatives’ session, scheduled on the opening day of the summit, will be led by Nick Nocton, consultant at internationally renowned law firm Mishcon de Reya LLP. Nocton and his panelists will aim to compare the approaches to junket legislation in the US, the UK and Macau in attempt to provide insights for the region going forward.


The panel will feature industry experts Jennifer Roberts, Associate Director, International Center for Gaming Regulation in Las Vegas, and Changbin Wang, Associate Professor at Gaming Teaching and Research Centre at Macau Polytechnic Institute, who will provide insights from both sides of the globe.
