Kontomerkos, Chief Executive Officer, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.
“Now, we are partnering again to do the same, only this time it will be at
the Inspire Super Arena at the Incheon International Airport, right in the
heart of the burgeoning Northern Asia entertainment market. The move
further solidifies MGE’s position as the premier global gaming and
entertainment resort developer and operator.”
