CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Lawrence Ho believes that the renewal of his business in Macau is beneficial for the future participation in the implementation of integrated resort areas in Japan.
Chinese premium players will come to Japanese casinos – Lawrence Ho
Melco conducts planned changes in the structure of its facilities in preparation for applying for a license in Japan. The main goal of the operator for today is to attract players not only VIP-level, but also premium-class players.
“What tourists knock on the door of Japan? Chinese players in the premium segment, “Ho said. – Over the past five years, China has provided almost 60% of tourists to Japan. According to forecasts, the number of Chinese premium customers by 2025 will reach 120 million. Just in time for the opening of our first integrated resort in Japan. ”
After some delay, the operator opened a new hotel in one of the towers of City of DreamsMacau. The Morpheus Hotel, designed by the architect and designer Zaha Hadid, is the only example of an architectural design not only for Macau, but for Asia in general.
Ho also shared plans to upgrade the City of Dreams casino. Like Morpheus, City of Dreams will become a place not only for VIPs, but also for guests of the premium segment.
Let’s remind: the opposition again opposes the legalization of casino-resorts in Japan.
