Non-Gaming Spend in Macau

Non-Gaming Spend in Macau

The emphasis on mass market in Macau means that the government has been encouraging operators to develop non-gaming attractions that will increase non-gaming spend. In the most recent report by the Government of Macao Special Administrative Region Statistics and Census Service, non-gaming spend was broken down by visitors from China and other parts of Asia. The biggest takeaway is that overnight visitors spend far more than day-trippers, consistent with the government’s desire to add more hotel rooms to the destination. And just like the massive lead in non-gaming volume, per-capita spend by visitors from mainland China also leads all other regions of the world.
