Sands China Ltd. celebrated the 10th anniversary of The Venetian® Macao Monday, highlighted by a ceremony at the outdoor lagoon of the iconic integrated resort.

The company’s anchor property on the Cotai Strip quickly became a must-see landmark destination that redefined the Cotai skyline, where it still draws millions of visitors from around the world 10 years later.

With a vision to establish a world-class business, leisure and family destination on the Cotai Strip, Chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp. and Sands China Ltd. Sheldon G. Adelson brought his successful integrated resort model to Macao with the launch of The Venetian Macao.Ten years on, The Venetian Macao has been joined by three interconnected sister resorts – The Plaza™ Macao, Sands® Cotai Central, and The Parisian Macao – forming an integrated resort city on Cotai attracting nearly half a billion visitors over the last 10 years.

With The Venetian Macao leading the way, Sands China continues its long-held strategy of offering a diversified mix of attractions and services to its visitors and to develop Macao into a world centre of tourism and leisure while diversifying the city’s tourism economy.

“This property has a very special place in my heart,” said Adelson. “It was my wife, Miriam, who first had the inspiration to recreate Venice in Las Vegas, and opening The Venetian Macao in 2007 marked the beginning of my vision for the Cotai Strip. I’m extremely grateful to every person who helped bring this reality to life and I’m humbled by the dedication and support we’re still receiving 10 years later.”

Dr Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd., said: “Sands China is so grateful to the Macao government, to the local community, and to our team members as we commemorate this important milestone for The Venetian Macao, for our company, and for Macao. It is our honour and pleasure to serve and operate in this vibrant community, and it is our hope to continue to grow with Macao and work in tandem with the Macao government to further support Macao’s transformation into a world centre of tourism and leisure.”
