Sands Resorts Macao will participate in ‘Macao Week in Shanghai’ mega roadshow from June 3 to 7, in support of the Macao SAR Government’s campaign to promote the destination in mainland China.
As the pandemic situation remains stable, a range of physical events have been progressively unrolled including a series of ’Macao Weeks’. Following the Macao Weeks held in Beijing last year as well as in Hangzhou and Nanjing, Jiangsu this year, the Shanghai events will feature a mega roadshow, gastronomic promotion, and seminars, business matching and networking to promote Macao’s diverse tourism and MICE offerings and showcase the SAR as a healthy, safe and quality destination. The event seeks to attract Mainland visitors for travel and spending in Macao to spur tourism and economic revival.
Sands Resorts Macao will fully support Macao Week in Shanghai with a significant presence at the event, including a British-themed booth especially designed for the roadshow to highlight newly launched The Londoner Macao integrated resort. Throughout the roadshow, visitors will be able to scan a WeChat QR code to receive souvenirs. A diverse range of limited-time hotel packages including accommodation, dining, shopping and entertainment will also be available to travellers planning summer vacations.
