MGS2016 confirms new calendar slot for 2016

Backed by major government departments in Macau SAR, the Macao Gaming Show will stage its fourth edition on Oct. 11th-13th, 2016 at the Venetian Macao.

Following consultations during last week’s MGS with its key stakeholders, organiser and owner of MGS – the Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association (MGEMA) has brought the three day event forward to October in 2016, ensuring greater interest from the Chinese and Asian markets, as it immediately follows China’s Golden Week national celebrations.

 The move also allows MGS to hold the opening expo slot for the city’s famous autumn attractions, with Macao Gaming Show and Summit, held on Oct. 11th-13th, Macau Investment Fair (Oct. 20th-21st 2016) and the Macau Grand Prix (Nov. 17th-20th 2016).

MGEMA Chairman Jay Chun has high hopes for the 2016 show. 2016 will be a landmark year for MGS on both the international and domestic stage. We represent the top 100 businesses in Macau’s primary industry sector, and this move will facilitate a key focus for commerce in the city, aligning us more closely with Macau’s major trading events as well as the SAR Government who see the show as an important player on the expo stage. MGS is not just a trade show; it’s a vital launchpad for companies worldwide to do business in this region”
