Celebrate Christmas with SJM’s Winter Wonders

SJM Resorts, S.A. (“SJM”) is launching a series of festive events this season, as part of a broader effort to align with the government’s initiative to promote tourism across the Macau community and stimulate the local economy.

In full support of the government’s call to boost non-gaming endeavors, SJM has spared no effort in contributing to bring this vision to life.

This December marks the 24th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Macao Special Administrative Region. SJM has actively participated in numerous government events and has organised multiple activities with the aim of creating a distinctive synergy to further enhance Macau’s image as a must-visit destination city.

Illuminating the City with Dazzling Light Displays

In celebration of Macao Government Tourism Office’s “Light Up Macao” event this winter, SJM is illuminating the Central District of Macau, from Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro to Ponte 16 Resort, along the city’s inner harbour, with a series of spectacular “Blooming Splendor” light installations from now until February 25, 2024.

The Central District, a popular tourism spot surrounded by World Heritage sites, is the historical heart of Macau’s economic prosperity and is home to the collective memories of Macau residents.

In line with this year’s theme of “The Dazzling Wonderland,” SJM uses flowers to portray Macau’s unique blend of Chinese and Western cultures. Vibrant colors are used to transform the Central District of Macau into a “Blooming Splendor.”

The brightly lit areas include: Ponte No. 16 and Ponte 16 Resort, Rua de Cinco de Outubro, Kam Pek Community Centre, Cathedral Square and Travessa de São Domingos. The “Blooming Splendor” will lead visitors and residents on an explorative journey through the city during the festive seasons.

Enriching Cultural and Tourism Experiences

As a company deeply rooted in Macau, SJM has been steadfast in its efforts to enrich the cultural and tourism experiences in Macau.

This December, SJM joins forces with the Cultural Affairs
Bureau to hold the “One Cultural Base Winter Programme.” By fully supporting this festive event, SJM aims to showcase Macau’s diverse vibrancy and cultural depth.
