This Master Class gave students a first-hand appreciation of the casino and entertainment industries in Macau and Hong Kong, and was led by Dr. Sheryl Kimes, holder of the Singapore Tourism Board’s first professorship in Asian Hospitality Management.

“As part of the course, students had the opportunity to understand Macau as a destination, study the profile of the Macau consumer, and grapple with issues such as managing human capital and hotel development and financing,” said Professor Kimes. “By travelling to Hong Kong and Macau, the students were privileged to see in practice, case studies about Macao Studio City, Wynn Macau and Hong Kong Disneyland.”

Daniel Shim, SVP of Human Resources for The Venetian Macau added “It is great that an international educational program brings its students to Macau to help the world understand the area. Also, bringing in prospective talent helps show them the opportunities that exist in Macau.”

The program gave students insights into issues such as typical consumers, hotel development and financing, managing human capital through a series of lectures led by notable industry leaders such as Dr Leonardo Dioko, Professor and Director of Research at the Institute for Tourism Studies Macao (IFT) and Dr Robert Kirby, President of Kirby Leadership.

Asian destinations keen on becoming gambling giants

With the announcement by Samak Sundaravej, incoming Thai prime minister who is planning to legalize gambling and build five casinos for domestic and foreign holidaymakers in the country’s tourist belts of Phuket, Pattaya, Khon Kaen, Hat Yai and Chiang Mai, the Far East has now entrenched itself as the world’s biggest legal gambling destination for tourists.

“Thais who want to gamble, can gamble,” said Samak. “The police can do other jobs instead of cracking down on illegal gambling dens.”

Despite gambling being illegal in Thailand, it has not stopped Thais from flocking to neighboring Cambodia and Myanmar where casinos have mushroomed along the border with Thailand.

Samak may also be facing up to the reality that it is far better for the country to gain from legalized gambling than to let it sip into the pockets of its police officers who are known to follow a ritual of rounding up an illegal casino following a complaint.

In an editorial, the Bangkok Post said it is an open secret that a number of police officers are close to illegal casino operators, who are “ready to help” if police stations need cash to carry out their day-to-day operations. Continue Reading
