Sands China Inaugurates SME Suppliers into Sands Procurement Academy

Sands China inaugurated the latest cohort of local SME suppliers into the Sands Procurement Academy Wednesday, at a ceremony at The Venetian Macao’s Adelson Advanced Education Centre. It is the seventh group of local SME suppliers to enroll in the complimentary training initiative to date.
Co-organized with the Macao Chamber of Commerce and the Macau Productivity and Technology Centre (CPTTM), the Sands Procurement Academy promotes the development of small businesses by sharing business knowledge and skills. The academy’s goal is to help the SMEs gain experience and capacity for working with large-scale international corporations like Sands China.
Wednesday’s latest group of 25 suppliers comprise a mix of Sands China suppliers and those that are potential new suppliers. Among them, 19 had run complimentary booths at the Sands Shopping Carnival in August.
Close to 180 local SME suppliers have graduated from the academy to date. Graduating suppliers receive a certificate and are given preferential procurement opportunities under otherwise equal circumstances.
