Amid fanfare and celebration, The Parisian Macao opened its doors to the public for the first time on Tuesday at 8.18 p.m.
The grand opening of the newest integrated resort from Sands China and parent company Las Vegas Sands represents the crowning achievement of company chairman and CEO Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson’s vision for the Cotai Strip.
“What started with a Venetian and now adds a Parisian to the family, the Cotai Strip has become one of the world’s greatest tourism marvels,” said Adelson. “Before our very eyes, Macau is making a similar transition to the one it took Las Vegas decades to make, evolving from a destination only suited for gaming customers, to an environment which still provides a safe and reputable gaming experience, but also offers a wide variety of activities, attractions and amenities for people of all backgrounds, income levels and interests.”
Tuesday night’s opening celebration included pyrotechnics and a lightshow at The Parisian Macao’s half-
scale authentic recreation of the Eiffel Tower, now a prominent feature on the Cotai skyline. The program’s entertainment highlight was a performance by multi-
award-winning Belgian singer Lara Fabian, who made her Macau debut.
