Hard Rock looks for real estate partner to develop IR facility in JapanReading Time: 1 minute

Hard Rock’s CEO for the Asia–Pacific region Ed Tracy said the company is seeking a construction or real estate partner in order to win Japanese IR license.

“We expect that even though it’s not outlined in the legislation that you have to have local partners, it just makes good sense,” Mr Tracy said in an interview with Bloomberg Television and added: “Significantly in Japan real estate costs are pretty high on a global scale, so a real estate partner would be great, and obviously a construction partner. That’s kind of the starting point.”

The Hard Rock executive also explained that the company, which “has significant content and technology partners that are Japanese based,” is focused on developing its IR in Hokkaido: “Our evaluation shows us that Tomakomai city is exactly the right place… We’ve been forming partnerships there and we’ve been working very hard with a tourism company,” he said.
