Ahead of the opening of Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC) in Macau early in 2021, Galaxy Integrated Resorts will showcase the new facility and its MICE offer at the IT&CM China 2020 virtual event, 3-5 August.
“We look forward to participating in IT&CM China’s new virtual event format this year,” said Joey Pather, the group’s senior vice-president, MICE operations and sales.
“With GICC as the newest addition to Macau’s MICE scene next year, it will be one of the most technologically advanced MICE destinations in Asia, offering 5G for high-speed connectivity and live streaming of content. We are witnessing an accelerating trend of more hybrid events. GICC will soon have the infrastructure and technology in place to become best in class in global digital and simulcast communication.”
Situated within the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, GICC will offer 40,000sqm of meeting space, a 650-seat auditorium, the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena and a new 700-room Andaz Macau hotel – all in one location.
For large-scale exhibitions, GICC offers 10,000sqm of pillar-less areas that can cater for 7,000 delegates.
Galaxy Arena will play host to major sports events, concerts, fight nights and corporate launches.
Organisers who book an event at GICC or at any of the eight luxury hotels at the resort precinct before December 31, 2020 can enjoy discounts, free welcome drinks, complimentary coach transfer, suite upgrades, complimentary rooms and 15% off on dining for hotel guests of Galaxy Macau and Broadway Macau. Minimum 25 room bookings required for minimum of two nights.
This resort-wide MICE offer is for events booked within this year and held before December 31, 2021.
A ‘We Are Ready’ campaign is in place to inform guests about enhanced health and safety measures at the resorts. Measures include temperature screening at all main entrances and exits at the resort and nano-coating technology for long-lasting, self-disinfection of surfaces.
