Mekong Gaming Summit to Explore Gaming Regulations This September

Amid the country's crackdown on online gambling, the first Mekong Gaming Summit by Asia Gaming Brief will take place on Sep. 10-12 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Cambodia will open its doors to 150 gaming operators, investors, consultants, and suppliers for the inaugural Mekong Gaming Summit.

Set to take place on Sep. 10-12 at Sofitel in Phnom Penh, the Summit will explore the challenges and the future of land-based  and online gaming in the Mekong region — Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Mekong Gaming Summit 2019

The first day of the Summit will focus on gaming regulation and investment outlook in the region, and will feature His Excellency Mey Vann, Director General of the Ministry of Economy & Finance, who will talk about gaming licenses application, investment requirements, and the proposed tax regime.

Welcoming the delegates at the first Mekong Gaming Summit is Her Excellency Nguon Sokha, the Secretary of State of the Ministry of Economy & Finance of Cambodia.

On the second day, the Summit will put the spotlight on gaming technology, marketing, and operations, focusing on key topics like Sports Betting in Southeast Asia and Setting Up Operations in the region.

Mekong Gaming Summit is organized by Asia Gaming Brief and endorsed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Cambodia.

Asia Live Tech is the Platinum Sponsor of the Summit, along with San Marco Capital Partners, a main supporter in the iGaming space, and other major iGaming companies.

After the two-day Summit, delegates who have booked their seats will join the tour to Sihanoukville.

Fast-Growing Economy of the Mekong Region

Cambodia, which establishes itself as the next gambling mecca in Asia, boasts a thriving tourism sector, attracting 1.27 million visitors from China only in the first four months of 2018.

With its land-based casinos attracting foreign players, mostly Chinese nationals, Cambodia now holds promising investment opportunities that can further fuel economic growth. The recent directive of Cambodia Prime Minister Hun Sen regarding the crackdown on online gambling, however, opens legal and economic questions that will be covered at Mekong Gaming Summit.

Recording at least 12-percent increase in H1 2018, Vietnam is also looking at opportunities that it can further maximize the gaming market. It may soon realize the three planned economic zones, two of which will house large-scale integrated resorts that may welcome local players.

Besides Cambodia and Vietnam, the other countries — Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar — experience huge economic growth, with estimates from World Bank suggesting an increase of 4.1 percent for Thailand, and 6.5 percent for Laos and Myanmar.
