Be­ing just 30 sq km in area, ev­ery­thing in Ma­cao is within 20 min­utes’ travel time or less. This helps min­imise lo­gis­tics and gives del­e­gates more time to at­tend con­fer­ences, net­work, so­cialise and do busi­ness.


Ma­cao has Asia’s largest of­fer­ing of in­te­grated resorts, with more than 37,000 hotel rooms, 190,000 sqm of ex­hi­bi­tion and meet­ing space, plus stun­ning en­ter­tain­ment, din­ing and re­tail op­tions. Be­ing able to host large-scale events un­der one roof also means eas­ier co­or­di­na­tion, fewer con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions and lower costs.


Ma­cao is a rel­a­tively young des­ti­na­tion with a con­stant stream of new venues, ho­tels and at­trac­tions, of­fer­ing an ap­peal­ing op­tion for meet­ing and in­cen­tive plan­ners look­ing for fresh op­tions.


Ma­cao is an open trad­ing port with easy ac­cess to the world’s sec­ond largest econ­omy (China); across the bor­der in Guang­dong prov­ince there are 109 mil­lion peo­ple, while over three bil­lion peo­ple are within five hours’ flight time from Ma­cao. Choos­ing Ma­cao there­fore means del­e­gates can net­work with clients and sup­pli­ers from some of the world’s most dy­namic emerg­ing mar­kets.


CUL­TURE When the Por­tuguese ar­rived in Asia, they brought in­gre­di­ents and tra­di­tions from Europe, as well as their set­tle­ments in Africa, South Amer­ica and In­dia. These were adapted by the lo­cal Chi­nese to cre­ate truly in­ter­na­tional tastes, fes­ti­vals and ar­chi­tec­tural de­lights that re­main till this day. In 2005, “The His­toric Cen­tre of Ma­cao” was of­fi­cially in­scribed on the World Her­itage List.


CLASS Ma­cao is home to a huge (and grow­ing) num­ber of in­ter­na­tional brand ho­tels, in­clud­ing the Vene­tian, Sher­a­ton, Mar­riott, St Regis, Four Sea­sons, MGM, Wynns, Banyan Tree, Con­rad, Man­darin Ori­en­tal, Sof­i­tel, Grand Hyatt, Galaxy, Hol­i­day Inn, Crown and Crowne Plaza.


Ma­cao is rapidly be­com­ing known as a des­ti­na­tion for duty-free shop­ping, with mod­ern malls teem­ing with lux­u­ri­ous in­ter­na­tional brands and premium goods. 8SAFETY Ma­cao is a safe and se­cure des­ti­na­tion.


CITYSCAPE Con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture and a grow­ing num­ber of unique at­trac­tions such as The Eif­fel Tower at The Parisian Ma­cao, the Per­for­mance Lake at the Wynn and Golden Reel at The Ma­cao Stu­dio City make for a spec­tac­u­lar sky­line and guar­an­teed wow-fac­tor. 10 FI­NAN­CIAL IN­CEN­TIVE The Ma­cao Trade and In­vest­ment Pro­mo­tion In­sti­tute has launched two sub­ven­tion pro­grammes, namely the “Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Stim­u­la­tion Pro­gramme” and the “In­ter­na­tional Meet­ing and Trade Fair Sup­port Pro­gramme”, which cover many as­pects from ac­com­mo­da­tion and F&B to key­note speak­ers, mar­ket­ing and trans­la­tion.
