MGM Resorts has announced that it will be participating in the Dotonbori Spring River Festival in Osaka in early May as part of its latest effort to woo the local community in pursuit of an IR in this major urban market.
MGM had previously participated in a similar event last October in which they exhibited a boat adorned with the company logo on the river. This time they are bringing some of their Cirque du Soleil collaborators to the Japanese city for a makeup demonstartion and performance.
Jason P. Hyland, representative officer and president of MGM Resorts Japan, stated, “MGM Resorts will continue to contribute to Osaka’s businesses and the tourism industry. MGM Resorts is constantly investing its creative energy into envisaging the entertainment of next generation in Japan. We felt that the Dotonbori Spring River Festival was the perfect opportunity for us to invite and collaborate with our important entertainment partner in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil. I hope people of Osaka, as well as international visitors, would enjoy this creative booth we are offering.” (AGB Nippon)
