This will be a visit tailored to the interests of those within the business, investor and gaming operator community, wishing to get a progress report on Hengqin’s development and to see firsthand how Hengqin is about to change the business landscape in Macau.
Macau’s ‘new front door’, Hengqin is a Free Trade Zone, three times the size of Macau. Through favorable policies and improved transportation links with the Cotai Strip, it is set to be closely integrated with Macau’s economy. The impact will be felt by everyone invested in—and operating in—Macau.
This tour aims to shed light on how this impact will be felt by Macau’s gaming and hotel properties, and in turn the effect on their share prices, their annual visitation numbers, the potential mix of visitors and in what years these changes will start taking effect. What is the likelihood of Hengqin being turned into a special zone that allows companies to operate casinos there?
For Macau’s wider business community, questions will be addressed on how the buildout of transportation infrastructure will boost visitor volumes to both Hengqin and Macau. Hengqin will soon have more than 10,000 hotel rooms—with potentially tens of thousands more rooms to follow. Most will cater to tourists; some will be business hotels. That will initially add another one-third to Cotai’s room capacity. When will some kind of “critical mass” be achieved in Hengqin, which results in attracting a substantial number of visitors that would otherwise not likely have visited Macau? How will the rise of Hengqin as a tourist destination affect the central government’s policies on visa requirements for mainlanders visiting Macau? Will Hengqin pioneer duty-free shopping and impact Macau’s retail sector?
