VMRH ExteriorSince January 2014, a total of over 80 awards and accolades have been given to Sands China Ltd.’s integrated resorts, and to hotels, restaurants and spas at its properties. That averages one recognition every four days over the last 10 months.
“Sands China aims to create unforgettable experiences for business, leisure and family travellers at our integrated resorts,” said Gunther Hatt, Executive Vice President of Operations, Sands China Ltd. “The honors we’ve received to date in 2014 – from guests, government agencies, industry-leading publications and others – are a welcome confirmation of the success of that effort. Recognition has ranged from praise for our luxury, value and sheer popularity to our efforts toward innovation, leadership and sustainability. In all these areas, our achievements are a direct result of the dedication of our incredible team of over 28,000 employees. They are the ones who have understood and internalized our company’s core values, and are translating them into action day after day. Beyond delighting our guests, their determination has distinguished Sands China properties as among the best in the business –
all while helping establish Macau as a world center of tourism and leisure.”
