Inspire Resort, Korea, Mohegan

Inspire Integrated Resort Co. has signed a memorandum of understanding with Samsung to provide LED lighting at its under-construction resort in Incheon. 

Inspire is an Incheon-based unit of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, which is building the project. 

According to local media reports, Samsung will work with Inspire Integrated Resort Co. and digital signage service company, Hyundai Futurenet to develop the resort’s LED lighting and other media infrastructure. 

In a May progress report, Mohegan said that concrete structure work at all three hotel towers at the resort is underway and continuing as planned. 

Structural steelwork for the public area, precast concrete arena structure and below grade utility construction are also underway. Infrastructure work both on and off site is also in progress, the company said in its fiscal 2Q22 earnings release.

The Inspire Korea project is situated in the Incheon Free Economic Zone, near Seoul’s international airport, one of Asia’s busiest. The zone was intended to be a casino and entertainment hub, but so far only an integrated resort run as a joint venture between local operator Paradise Co. and Japan’s Sega Sammy is up and running.

Inspire Korea will feature a foreigner-only casino, a 15,000 square meter arena, a major water attraction and an outdoor family park.
