Sands China’s latest project, where the Sands Cotai Central integrated resort is being rebranded as The Londoner Macao, will open on 8 February, the gaming operator said in a statement on Thursday.
About 2,000 of the company’s staff members joined rallies at The Londoner Theatre on Tuesday to prepare for the upcoming 8 February “first-phase unveiling” of The Londoner Macao.
According to the statement, the project, representing an investment of US$1.9 billion (MOP 15.2 billion), will see The Londoner Macao opening phase by phase.
The first phase opening will unveil the all-suite The Londoner Hotel, the “Crystal Palace” atrium, new dining options, and interactive London-themed attractions in the first quarter.
“These team-member rallies are a way for us to energise our opening team and celebrate their hard work and passion,” Sands China Ltd. President Wilfred Wong Ying-wai is quoted in the statement.
During the rallies, Wong delivered an “emotional tribute” to Las Vegas Sands and Sands China Ltd. chairman and chief executive officer Sheldon G. Adelson, who passed away on 11 January in the US.
“In response, all team members rose from their seats and gave a standing ovation for the late company founder,” the statement said.
