Cambodian Secretary of State to address Mekong Gaming Summit
Asia Gaming Brief is delighted to confirm that the Ministry of Economy and Finance Secretary of State, H.E. Nguon Sokha, will give the opening address at the much-anticipated Mekong Gaming Summit in September.
The conference is due to take place at the Sofitel Phnom Penh from 10-11 September and has the full support of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MOEF), one of the agencies responsible for gaming regulation, along with the Ministry of the Interior. Both will eventually form the Gaming Management Committee to implement and oversee the Kingdom’s new gaming legislation.
H.E. Mey Vann, director general of the MOEF, will also be speaking at the summit, and we expect to shortly also confirm the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration, Ministry of Investment and Foreign Economic Relations of Myanmar.
In addition to these addresses from government officials, the summit will provide investing and market perspectives on the land-based and online gaming opportunities in the key markets of Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
Other highlights of the event include a special gala cocktail reception hosted by the capital’s premier casino and entertainment resort - NagaWorld - on the evening of Tuesday 10th September. Delegates will also be able to meet companies able to assist in setting up their businesses in the region at a table-top exhibition space in the Sofitel Grand Ballroom foyer.
Immediately following the conference, there will be an optional tour to Sihanoukville for those who would like to see the sheer scale of development in Asia’s new gambling mecca for themselves.
Speaking and sponsorship opportunities are still available. To enquire about these, get in touch with the organizers at Asia Gaming Brief via firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about how you can get involved.
Early bird pricing for delegates is available until 19 July, 2019.
