Following the recent approval of the 1st IR Bill in the lower and upper house to allow casinos in Japan, interests in this region have been re-ignited perhaps to a level even higher than before as this is the furthest the IR Bill has ever gotten in Japanese government. If passed, Japan is tipped to become the 2nd largest gaming market in the world after Macau with annual projections of $40 Billion in revenue. 

The Japan Briefing will provide an exclusive opportunity to hear from industry stakeholders who are on the ground in the Japan. They will be able to give you a realistic overview on the current situation in Japan and what opportunities you have to look forward to. This will act as a brilliant introduction to our main event, Japan Gaming Congress (JgC), taking place in Tokyo, May 2017.
