(Macao, Feb. 17, 2018) – Sands China Ltd. welcomed the Year of the Dog with traditional cultural ceremonies at its properties Saturday, with company executives participating in the annual tradition.

Sands China held worship rituals, eye-dotting ceremonies, and traditional lion and dragon dance performances at Sands® Macao, The Venetian® Macao, Sands® Cotai Central and The Parisian Macao on the second day of the Lunar New Year to attract good luck and blessings to the properties and to Macao.

In addition, company executives will celebrate the New Year with team members later next week, at special back-of-house events at the four properties featuring games, lucky draws and roast pig-carving ceremonies.

And leading up to the Lunar New Year, team members were invited to participate in two activities for a chance to win gifts and prizes: a design competition that called for team members to submit creative designs for festive Chinese New Year banners, and a game which offered team members the opportunity to hunt for and take selfies with special festive displays throughout the properties' back-of-house areas.

"Last year was another successful one for Sands China," said Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. "We have confidence in a successful 2018 with the Year of the Dog, and we look forward to the continued leadership of the Macao SAR government as we join hands with the people of Macao to build an even brighter future for the city. We wish everyone a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year."
