Corporate bits | MGM Macau introduces new art installations

MGM Macau has set up a brand-new Garden at Grande Praça for its visitors to see this summer.

With large glass flowers, butterflies and woven bulbs that can be lounged in, the European-inspired atrium is embellished with designs based on nature and flowers.

MGM has created “Beauty in the Air” in collaboration with U.S.-based maestro of oversized visual display art, Stephen Stefanou.

The atrium is decorated with synthetic glass sculptures, including over 110 oversized butterflies and 17 flowers of four different types, whose bulbs are made of six custom-woven loungers.

Stephen Stefanou, who has been collaborating with MGM both in Macau and the United States, remarked: “This is my first time to create an interactive piece of art that enables people to sit down and relax, and it makes a delightful enhancement to the Garden.”

Sands holds ceremony for internship programme graduates

A group of 111 Macau university students graduated from Sands China’s Integrated Resort Internship Programme on May 9, with the company honoring them in a ceremony at The Venetian Macao.

Sands China established the Integrated Resort Internship Programme to offer students short-term work experience at Sands China’s integrated resorts for a period of up to six months. The program offers internship opportunities in 10 non-gaming departments, including concierge, food and beverage, corporate communications, and entertainment, giving interns valuable integrated resort work experience. 

Each intern received a certificate for completing the program, with three noteworthy graduates honored on stage with an Impressive Performance Award, according to a statement issued by the gaming operator.

The three award winners also received a souvenir as a token of recognition for their achievement. 

Nearly 90 percent of the students who graduated from the internship program on May 9 are also graduating from their universities this June. They are being offered the chance to join either the “Sands China’s Fast Track Supervisor Programme,” the company’s “Career Experience Opportunities Programme (CEOP),” or other full-time job opportunities with Sands China.
