The Venetian Macao Collects Three Key Accolades at 2018 World Travel Awards

(Macao, Sept. 4, 2018) The Venetian® Macao has taken three top titles at the World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2018, staged in Hong Kong yesterday, including Asia’s Leading Resort, Macau’s Leading Casino Resort and Macau’s Leading Resort

This is the 10th year The Venetian Macao has been recognised at the World Travel Awards, after also winning Macau’s Leading Resort and Macau’s Leading Casino Resort at last year’s event. The accolades reflect the integrated resort’s consistent excellence across all areas of operations and dedication to service quality. 

Voting for the World Travel Awards is open to professionals in the travel and tourism industries and business and leisure travellers via the organisation’s website.

“We are thrilled and honoured to have received these prestigious awards, now for the tenth year in a row,” said Mark McWhinnie, Senior Vice President of Resort Operations and Development, Sands China Ltd. “The fact we have been recognised in this way by both the industry and the public endorses the quality and diversity of our facilities and services. However, it would not have been possible without the hard work and diligence of our talented and dedicated team, for which we are extremely grateful.”

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to identify and reward the world’s best travel organisations. They have now developed into the most comprehensive and prestigious awards programme in the travel and tourism industry and acknowledged as a benchmark of excellence.

The organisation is independent and impartial, with winners chosen according to seven criteria: customer satisfaction and quality of service; overall business performance; product innovation; staff relations and development; corporate social responsibility and contribution to the local community; commitment to sustainable policies; and fulfilment of long-term corporate vision. 

The Venetian Macao marked its 10th anniversary last year with a refurbishment of its 3,000 suites and added Il Prato, a spacious event lawn which can accommodate up to 5,000 people for a wide range of events.
