INCHEON, South Korea, Nov. 24, 2023 — Mohegan INSPIRE Entertainment
Resort President Chen Si announced the opening of its first phase as a
true entertainment resort in Asia with a soft opening on Nov. 30. This
phase encompasses significant attractions, including three hotel towers
with 1,275 rooms, Korea’s first multi-purpose arena, MICE facilities
including the largest ballroom in Korea, its signature restaurants and
Aurora, a state-of-the-art digital entertainment street.

With the aspiration of “Inspiring Worlds, Inspiring People,” INSPIRE
aims to set a new standard for entertainment resorts in South Korea,
offering an unforgettable and unparalleled experience to visitors of all
generations and nationalities. INSPIRE plans to open the entire resort
in phases by the first half of 2024, employing a gradual opening
strategy.

“This is a momentous occasion for Mohegan, marking both a historic
partnership for our Tribe and a new echelon for our system of premier
integrated entertainment resorts around the world,” said James Gessner
Jr., Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe and the Mohegan Management Board. “We
have been honored to work closely with the Korean government to make
this day possible, and we look forward to INSPIRE contributing to the
local and regional economies by creating local jobs, bringing visitors
to enjoy the Incheon region, and attracting new businesses both on and
adjacent to the property. I am grateful to the Mohegan and Mohegan
INSPIRE teams for their efforts and their leadership and look forward to
many years of success and partnership in South Korea.”  

A soft opening on November 30 will introduce a premier hotel comprising
three towers, each with a distinct concept (Forest Tower, Sun Tower and
Ocean Tower); INSPIRE Arena, a multi-purpose indoor performance venue
with a total capacity of 15,000 seats; and Aurora, a 150-meter-long
digital entertainment street featuring super-large LED screens. This
opening also showcases Splash Bay, a glass-domed indoor water park
(swimming pool available to hotel guests in the initial phase), more
than 10 INSPIRE-owned restaurants, including the world-famous Michael
Jordan’s Steak House, and state-of-the-art MICE facilities.

“INSPIRE is significant to us not only for our growth in the global
market but also for the opportunity to share Mohegan’s legacy and spirit
with the world,” said Ray Pineault, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Mohegan. “Together as a team, we look forward to bringing
this incredible entertainment destination to Asia, offering the
top-notch hospitality services and products that our guests expect from
our brand.”

Following the initial soft opening, INSPIRE Mall—an integrated
cultural space combining shopping, dining and entertainment—and a
foreigner-exclusive casino are expected to open in the first quarter of
2024. Discovery Park, an outdoor entertainment facility covering
approximately 100,000 square meters; an international food court in
collaboration with Glow Seoul, along with Splash Bay’s water
attractions, Korea’s largest digital immersive content exhibition center
and an indoor children’s playground are expected to open in the second
quarter of 2024.

“We are delighted that project INSPIRE, aimed at creating a leading
entertainment integrated resort in Northeast Asia in Incheon, South
Korea, has reached a major milestone,” said Chen Si, President of
Mohegan INSPIRE. “I would like to express a sincere gratitude to the
Korean government, municipalities, local communities and our team
members for their support and collaboration on this project. As we grow
with the community, we will establish ourselves as an ultimate
entertainment destination that attracts visitors from around the world,
filled with inspiration and innovation.”
