MGM Resorts Japan was a special sponsor for an event last week called the 2nd ASEAN-Japan Music Festival, held at NHK Hall in Shibuya Ward. A representative of MGM Resorts pointed to this festival as an example of the company’s intention to promote Japanese musical acts both domestically and internationally.
Jason Hyland, representative officer and president of MGM Resorts Japan explained to Asia Gaming Brief, “At MGM Resorts’ arenas and theaters around the world, live performances bring revolutionary experiences to the music world in a way that transcends boundaries. The IR that is to be realized in Japan will be an entertainment hub, and MGM Resorts, as a major global entertainment company will bring even more of Japan’s talented artists to the world stage, while bringing the very best of global entertainment to Japan.”
Hyland added, “Japan’s music has enormous potential to attract larger audiences around the world. This music festival was a wonderful opportunity to showcase great artists from Japan and ASEAN countries. The 2nd ASEAN-Japan Music Festival also highlighted Japan as a fun and exciting tourist destination. MGM Resorts Japan was proud to be a sponsor of this festival, using the power of music to contribute to international exchange and peace while enjoying fantastic music from Japan and ASEAN and promoting international tourism.”
The first ASEAN-Japan Music Festival was held in 2013 with the concept of bringing together top popular musical artists from Japan and the ten nations of ASEAN.
