The award ceremony, held in Hong Kong on July 21, saw Sands China pick up five golds for Best Large Event, Best Product Launch Event, Best Use of Venue, Best Event – Design and Best VIP Event; a silver for Best Media Event; and three bronzes in the Most Innovative Event, Best Use of Influencer / Advocates and Best Event Targeted Community categories.
Mr. Gene Capuano, senior vice president of conventions & Venetian operations, Sands China Ltd. commented, “We are honoured and delighted that our newest integrated resort
The Parisian Macao has been recognised for these prestigious awards. It was a major group effort and our entire team takes great pride in receiving this accolade.”
The Marketing Events Awards, produced by Marketing magazine, recognise and honour the best of Asia’s event marketing, management and planning industry. It is regarded as the most prestigious event for event marketers and planners, highlighting creative excellence, strategic marketing and operational precision, alongside contributions made to the industry.
With around 300 quality submissions across multiple categories, the 2017 awards were judged by senior marketers across North Asia and Marketing magazine’s editorial board, with outstanding entrants awarded with gold, silver and bronze trophies at the gala dinner.
The Parisian Macao grand opening, ten months in the planning, was one of the most ambitious hospitality concepts ever realised and the culmination of an US$13 billion investment by Sands China Ltd. in its Cotai Strip resorts. Events on the day included a lion parade and blessing ceremony, press conference, red carpet and cocktail reception, opening ceremony, gala dinner in The Parisian Ballroom and a VIP poolside after-party.
The massive creative and logistical process saw the base of The Parisian Macao’s half-scale Eiffel Tower transformed into a large event stage, where 70 cast and crew members, including singers and dancers, plus Lara Fabian, the best-selling Belgian female artist of all time, and leading Chinese actor and singer Karen Mok, performed a grand opening show.
