Sands Macau commemorates 20th anniversary

Sands Macau has celebrated its 20th anniversary, marking what the company calls a ‘period of monumental growth for Sands China and Macau’.

The group opened the doors of its first property in the SAR on May 18th, 2004, and now hosts five properties which have recorded over 950 million visits since then.

Speaking of the group’s presence in Macau, Wilfred Wong, executive vice chairman of Sands China, noted “Sands China takes immense pride in bearing witness to and actively participating in the flourishing development of this remarkable city. Together, we script an indelible chapter in history.

The grand inauguration of Sands Macao in 2004 served as the pivotal moment in Macao’s illustrious era of tourism. Drawing inspiration from the triumphant integrated resort model of Las Vegas, we subsequently embarked on a transformative journey that reshaped the Cotai skyline, effectively materializing the visionary aspirations of our esteemed founder, Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson. Sands Macao is unequivocally where it all began”.

Las Vegas Sands, the parent company to Sands China, has seen undoubted success from its Macau investment, with the city now boasting over 12,000 hotel rooms linked to the company name.

The group notes that over 15,000 team members will have been with the company for over 10 years by end-2024, with more than 6,600 and 1,500 having served for more than 15 and 20 years, respectively.

Sands Macau was the first of Las Vegas Sands’ properties to be completed under the new gaming concessions (and sub-concessions) in the early 2000s, marking a massive turning point for Macau as it shifted to become the world gaming hub.
