Approximately 20 casino operators, including names such as Las Vegas Sands, MGM Resorts, Wynn Resorts, Hard Rock International are preparing proposals for selection to host an Integrated Resort in three regions of Japan.
Each facility will require a massive investment as they aim to attract visitors with a combination of facilities: hotels and spas, restaurants and bars, convention and meeting spaces, shopping, entertainment, culture and casinos. The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is a great example.
The IR concept is not well known to Japanese and most only see the negative aspects of gaming in the media coverage they get on IRs. But what they might not yet realize is how IRs are designed to appeal to a wide variety of visitors. One major appeal will be the food and restaurant experience.
Come and join us to learn how Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group has delivered innovative and attractive offerings around the world and is set to bring those skills to Japan.
