The who’s who of Macau’s VIP social and entertainment scenes…
We usually feature the world’s most famous singers and actors on these pages but it seems the big brass of gaming in Macau have been hitting the red carpet of late. Galaxy Entertainment Group was recently awarded the prestigious Casino Operator of the Year Australia/Asia award with Chairman Dr Lui Che-woo receiving the Outstanding Contribution Award at the International Gaming Awards. Galaxy Entertainment Group is currently halfway through construction of Galaxy Macau Phase 2 and will soon commence Phases 3 and 4. Dr Ambrose So, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SJM, also announced that construction has now begun on Lisboa Palace in Cotai as Macau continues to grow.
Meanwhile, Sands China has attracted its fair share of international celebrities to welcome in the New Year. Acclaimed actor Chow Yun-Fat attended a red carpet event and premiere for the film “From Vegas to Macau” where fans had the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the God of Gamblers, while sports fans were delighted to hear that the latest UFC Fight Night Macau & The Ultimate Fighter China Finale would be held at CotaiArena in early March. No wonder Sands China President and Chief Executive Officer Mr Edward Tracy was named Person of the Year by Macau Daily Times!
