Macau is a city of great contrasts being only 29.7 km2 in size yet the home to Asia’s largest fully integrated convention and exhibition Centre; a city of world heritage stature that also boasts one of the world’s most spectacular and modern skylines; a city that blends the rich traditions of Chinese and Portuguese cultures which is reflected in its lifestyle, food, restaurants, architecture and festivities. Macau has also diversified its offerings to Business Tourism visitors and incentive travelers in recent years to provide designer shopping, luxury hotels and resorts as well as many more dining and entertainment options.

This grand hotel provides world-class dining options with an international menu, and authentic Chinese and many other types of cuisine to specially suit the business traveler. Since it is located on a central business district, guests can easily access the most important venues and meetings in the city.

Macau’s architecture, religious rituals, customs and cuisines reflect Macau’s unique cultural heritage – Macau is home 25 UNESCO-listed World Heritage sites. Getting around in Macau for meetings and events has never been easier. Macau is accessible from air (the Macau International Airport is only 15 minutes to most hotels), sea with ferry services to Hong Kong and China and also to the Hong Kong International Airport and by land. However, one of the standout infrastructure projects has to be the 29.5km bridge that will link Macau to nearby Hong Kong and Zuhai, which will boost access in and out of the island. The region is currently in a state of mass development, with an array of new hotels and other infrastructure set to expand the local economy and many new business ventures.
