The Japan Gaming Congress (JgC) which is being held across 10-11 May at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Tokyo, is close to capacity with over 420 delegates now registered for the event, which will feature thought leaders including, Mark Frissora, CEO, Caesars Entertainment; John Raczka, Former Vice President Entertainment Development & Operations, Melco Crown Entertainment; Masayo Watanabe, Senior Manager Sub-Leader for the Integrated Resort Support Office, Ernst & Young Japan; Masahiro Terada, Senior Manager, Pricewaterhouse Coopers (Japan) and Ed Bowers, CEO and  Representative Officer, MGM Resorts Japan, LLC. Online registration, which is available via www.japangamingcongress.com, will close at 5pm GMT on Monday 8th May, with organisers advising there is no guarantee that non-registered delegates who arrive onsite will be given access to the event. 
 
Rory Credland, Event Director for JgC, said: “The tremendous response from delegates reflects the importance of the lucrative gaming and hospitality market in Japan, estimated to be worth $40bn. Japan, which is the third largest economy in the world, has been preparing itself as a potential gaming hub in Asia for some time and with the gaming industry now tuned into the prospects of addressing this huge market following the approval of the Integrated Resort Promotion Bill, the Congress has taken on huge significance." 
 
The Japan Gaming Congress is a two-day educational forum that will offer a clear, practical insight and understanding into the casino legislation in Japan. With a relatively short time to go before the first licences are issued, JgC provides an opportunity to fully understand the complex nature of IR Casinos in one of the potential superpowers in Asia. Topics to be covered at this year’s JgC, include: Building a MICE economy in conjunction with IR projects; Licensing regulations; Best practice in responsible gambling; IR locations and Financing IR projects.
