The managing director of Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central, Janet McNab, received top honors at last week’s prestigious BMW Hotelier Awards 2017 event, where she was named “General Manager of the Year, Greater China”.

According to a joint statement, the Australian-born Italian has spent 15 years in Asia, working at properties across Thailand, China, Indonesia and Macau.

Upon receiving her award, McNab said, “working with me are 2,000 dedicated people who keep me going every day. […] This recognition is very special and I take my hat off to them all.”

The annual Hotelier Awards are the only accolades in Greater China and Asia in which finalists are judged by their peers within the industry.   

Free Wi-Fi network extended

“FreeWiFi.MO” was launched last week, with the aim of providing the residents and tourists of Macau with more convenient free Wi-Fi access points.

To date, CTM, the Macau International Industrial Technology Development Association (AIDIT) and Y5ZONE Macau have been the only entities involved in the FreeWiFi.MO project. In conjunction with the Wi-Fi Go service provided by the Macao Post and Telecommunication Bureau (CTT), there are currently 280 access points provided by the FreeWiFi.MO service.

These points include the main tourist attractions and routes, bus stops and public infrastructure sites.

The director of CTT, Derby Lau, said that CTT will try to increase the number of access sites to 360 by the end of this year.

Access to the FreeWiFi.MO network is not subject to any requests. All parties, as soon as they select the FreeWiFi.MO network, can use the service for a cumulative duration of at least 60 minutes per day.
