Sands Resorts Macao Hosts Sales Appreciation Awards Dinner
‘The Legends Awards’ honours trade and business partners for their
contribution to outstanding performance
(Macao, Feb. 24, 2017) – Sands Resorts Macao hosted its annual Sales Appreciation Awards gala dinner on Feb. 23 at The Parisian Macao to recognise the outstanding contributions made by its leisure, MICE, airline and media partners to the overall success of the integrated resort throughout 2016.
The annual event, this year entitled ‘The Legends Awards’, plays an important part in the business philosophy of Sands Resorts Macao by acknowledging and rewarding trade partners of The Venetian® Macao, The Parisian Macao, Conrad Macao, Cotai Central and Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central.
The ‘Legends’ theme of the event was chosen as a timeless symbol in both Chinese and western mythology to emphasise attributes including strength, courage, ambition and achievement.
These characteristics were certainly in evidence in the performance of the winners of ten sales and marketing awards given out on the evening, who included:
· Trade Partner of the Year, Online Market – Booking.com B.V.
· Trade Partner of the Year, MICE Market – China Travel Service Gongbei Port Guangdong Co., Ltd.
· Trade Partner of the Year, Leisure Market – China International Travel Service Ltd, Head Office
The invited guests, included representatives from the leisure and MICE industries, airlines and the media, enjoyed a glamorous evening at The Parisian Macao Ballroom with a range of great entertainment, including golden ‘living statues’ and caricaturists at the foyer, and Parisian style performances complemented by an exquisite menu provided by Sands Resorts Macao signature restaurants.\
“2016 was truly momentous for us, with the successful opening of The Parisian Macao,” said Ruth Boston, Vice President of Destination Marketing and Sales, Sands China Ltd. “In our quest to share our exciting new integrated resort with as many customers and media as possible, we visited 17 cities across Asia to showcase just how you could ‘Become Part of Paris’ at The Parisian Macao.
“Our seven hotels on the Cotai Strip, including partner hotels Sheraton, The St. Regis and The Four Seasons, have been extremely fortunate to have the ongoing support of strong travel, MICE and media partners like you. I think you’ll agree when I say we have a great year ahead at Sands Resort Macao. Thank you all once more for your support and for being ‘our legends’.”、
With the addition of The Parisian Macao, Sands Resorts Macao now offers over 13,000 rooms and suites across seven world-class properties, including 150 international restaurants, more than 850 duty free shops, luxurious spa facilities and regular concerts and live performances at several magnificent theatres.
Sands Resorts Macao also offers a wide variety of family-friendly offerings including the exciting new Planet J, Macao’s first ever live-action, role playing theme park. With eight exquisitely designed zones and more than 200 game installations across 100,000 square feet, Planet J provides an endless series of magical rescue missions for children of all ages.
Another new addition is the impressive new Sands Cotai Theatre. With 1,700 seats, this state of the art venue was purpose built by Sands China Ltd for the arrival of the highly anticipated Monkey King – China Show from the renowned Beijing Huayan Group. Eight years in the making, the stage show combines dance, acrobatics, drama, martial arts, magic, advanced 3D effects, LED screen projections, video mapping and full surround sound, together with creative lighting effects, choreography, music and spectacular costumes.
Also due to make a welcome return in 2017 is Thriller Live, which was a huge success last year as The Parisian Macao’s Parisian Theatre debut show. This fantastic show features the hits of music legend Michael Jackson, direct from the West End in London.
