Genting Malaysia


About The Client

One of the largest companies in Malaysia with a market capitalisation of more than RM15 billion and assets valued at RM28 billion as of end 2020, Genting Malaysia owns and operates Resorts World Genting – Malaysia’s leading resort, which provides wide-ranging leisure and entertainment facilities, including gaming, theme park and amusement attractions, dining and retail outlets, and international shows and business convention facilities.


While Resorts World Genting is Malaysia’s only legalised casino, Genting Malaysia wanted to enhance its reputation as being more than just a gaming destination. In particular, it wanted to showcase how the Resorts World brand is synonymous with the very best in high-end, luxury lifestyle both inside and outside Malaysia.
