Casino operator Las Vegas Sands has agreed to pay a $7 million criminal penalty to end a U.S. Department of Justice probe into whether it violated anti-bribery laws by paying a consultant to help it obtain a license in Macau from 2006-2009.
Las Vegas Sands is an intergrated resort developer and operator. Its resorts feature luxury accommodations, state-of-the-art gaming, high-end retail, celebrity-chef dining and a wide-range of entertainment and convention space for both business and leisure guests.
It runs integrated Resorts in Las Vegas, Bethlehem, Macau and Singapore, with 10 resorts worldwide and three of the world’s largest convention centers.
It has a unique convention-based marketing strategy which allows the company to attract business travelers during the slower mid-week periods while focusing on leisure travelers during peak visitation. Its convention, trade show and meeting facilities are located with all on-site amenities offered at our resorts.
Its integrated Resorts in the United States include The Venetian and The Palazzo. The resorts offer not only luxury accommodations and entertainment but when combined with Sands Expo & Convention Center, The Venetian and The Palazzo also make up one of the largest LEED certified buildings on the planet. Also in the United States is Sands Bethlehem, a AAA 4-diamond and 4 Green Key property, located on the site of the historic Bethlehem Steel Works.
In Asia, the company runs the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. It has also developed - through its majority-owned subsidiary Sands China Ltd. - a collection of resorts in Macau, including The Venetian Macau, Sands Macau, The Plaza Macau featuring Four Seasons Hotel Macau, Cotai Central, Sands Cotai Central, The St. Regis Macau, Cotai Central, as well as its most recent edition, The Parisian Macau.
