Prof. Glenn McCartney, Associate Professor of International Integrated Resort Management, Faculty of Business Administration, UM was invited to be a guest speaker on the most recent session of MBtv/FRC Debates, titled “Reimagining MICE: New Challenges and Opportunities”  on 26 October 2022.   The discussion brought some industrial executives together including Florence Chua, Managing Director of the Professional Convention Management Association (Asia Pacific); Todd Cai, Vice President of the Macau Association of Convention, Exhibition, and Tourism Sectors and Bruno Simões, President of the Macau Meetings, Incentives and Special Events Association.

In the session, Prof. McCartney highlighted that current quarantine-on-arrival measures would have to be removed for the MICE industry to be “relaunched and rejuvenated” and hoped the new 10-year gaming concessions to be issued this year will already define the role gaming operators should have in developing the Macau SAR MICE sector while urging authorities to establish a clear talent development strategy, and public and private sector collaborative framework to advance the development of MICE including a consensus on city branding.
