Sands China names Angel winner of Innovation award

Sands China Ltd. held its 2017 Sands Supplier Excellence Awards at The Venetian Macao last Wednesday, where the company recognized the cooperation and services of several of its outstanding suppliers.

Held at the end of each year, the awards are a global initiative of Sands China’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands Corp.

“For five years now, Sands China has held these awards to recognize the most outstanding of our suppliers,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. “Sands China considers our suppliers to be partners in our mutual success. So whether large corporations, small businesses, or micro-enterprises, it is our pleasure to recognise the suppliers who have demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and service – not only during normal business operations, but even under extreme circumstances such as after Typhoon Hato. It is through working hand-in-hand that we are better able to fulfil our company strategy of delivering unforgettable experiences to our guests and visitors.”

Nearly 30 companies were nominated for this year’s Sands Supplier Excellence Awards by Sands China’s business units and employees, carefully selected from among thousands of service providers and suppliers that work with the company.

The companies nominated represent diverse industries like construction and development; furniture, fixtures and equipment; facilities and services; hotel supplies; food and beverage; and many others. This year’s winners include long-established local companies that have contributed to Macao's development over the years.

Among the winners was Angel Playing Cards, which won the award for Innovation for its cutting edge playing card security solution, developed in 2016.

Sands is the first company to deploy it globally; which has proven to be a successful addition to the industry, increasing operational efficiency with the latest technology.

Other winners were named in categories including small- and medium-sized enterprise (SME), corporate culture and sustainability, cost management, service excellence, project management, and total quality management.

Winners of the awards were selected by a judging committee comprised of Sands China executive management.

Judges examine a range of criteria including suppliers’ leadership, vision and strategy; product consistency and process capability; and creative partnership opportunities, among other criteria.
