A Very Brief History:
The Sands Macao Casino & Hotel Resort was the first casino resort in the Macau Peninsula owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation and opened on May 18th, 2004. It’s architectural genius was the design of Steelman Partners, LLP costing a whopping $240 million USD to contract and construct to completion. A brilliant team of Casino industry veterans consisting of top executives and managers baring remarkable reputations, were hired by the company to plan their venture into the Macau market.
The teams carefully selected crew hail from backgrounds boasting many years of experience in ship-based and land-based casinos in Malaysia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. It should come as no surprise that the teams proven familiarity with Asian markets, Asian games, Asian practices and customs, and Asian play proved successful in their ability to find and train excellent staff with a flawless execution. The Casino & Hotel Resort opened to booming success that has carried over into several ventures by the company 12 years later.
The Las Vegas Sands Corporation operates nine luxury casino & hotel resort properties around the world, four of which are found in the Macau Peninsula and on the Cotai Strip. The company chairman Sheldon Adelson has said before that Las Vegas Sands is quickly becoming a predominantly Chinese enterprise stating that Las Vegas should be called “America’s Macau” thanks to the recent explosion of the market throughout the region. He and many other top executives in the Casino industry have announced their confidence in Macau’s status as “the Gambling Mecca of the World” as it has rightfully earned the title thanks to its recent boom in the gambling economy of the region over the past decade.
Designs for the resort opted for an open-plan interior with a keen design and excellent Feng Shui well suited to it’s mostly Asian clientele. Their success was blessed by the teams superior competency and execution from very start of the casino’s opening day and they never looked back. By May 2005 all construction bonds were paid in full. The original staff members who have stayed through the success of the resort and its brand have been greatly rewarded with multiple well-earned promotions. Managers have been privy to watch with great pride as their hard work continues to pay off, as the value of their stock-options have more than doubled since the Resort opened in 2004.
In 2006, the great success of the Sands Macau allowed Las Vegas Sands Corp. to complete construction of a major expansion of the casino. This saw the original 165,000 square feet grow to an astonishing 229,000 square feet housing an impressive 740 table games. This was the largest casino the world until Las Vegas Sands opened their second successful venture into the market, the Venetian Macau on the Cotai Strip – a luxury resort which opened its doors on August 28th, 2007 to yet another great degree of success for the company.
