New Year’s Eve Extravaganza at the Cotai Strip Development

The Voice of China Venetian Macao Rock with Stars Countdown Concert and a Spectacular Fireworks Display

Macao, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The Cotai Strip® development was the scene of a New Year’s Eve extravaganza Monday. The celebrity-filled spectacular featured a special concert from the hit TV show The Voice of China and Hong Kong’s Paul Wong & The Postman at the CotaiArena, and a countdown to a magnificent fireworks display that rung in the New Year.

“The fireworks display and countdown concert cap a very significant year for Sands China with the launch of Sands® Cotai Central, our 6,000-room integrated resort,” said Edward Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sands China Ltd. “We are proud to have achieved outstanding performances in 2012, both for our new hotel properties opened this year — Conrad, Sheraton and Holiday Inn — as well as for our well-known brands — The Venetian® Macao, Sands® Macao and The Plaza Macao featuring Four Seasons Hotel, reflecting that our products and services are welcomed by the market. With all hotels at capacity and sold out mega events such as concerts featuring The Voice of China and this past Saturday’s Hacken Lee concert, it has been a crowning end to a royal year of world-class events for Sands China. Our commitment to Macao continues, and we thank our visitors and guests for their support this year as we look forward to welcoming them back to our properties in 2013.”

An incredible pyrotechnic show lit up the sky on Monday, closing 2012 in dazzling style. A sequence of stunning fireworks illuminated Cotai from Sands China’s Cotai Strip properties: The Venetian Macao, The Plaza Macao and Sands Cotai Central.

A massive crowd gathered to see the fireworks along with Winter in Venice’s glittering five-minute display of a 43,000-square-foot (4,000-square-metre) special edition 3D video mapping countdown, which lit up the facade of The Venetian Macao at 11:55 pm. The dazzling pyrotechnic show that followed contained almost 5,500 individual fireworks reflecting the character and uniqueness of the Cotai Strip properties.

Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central’s New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Jaya pool entertained hundreds of guests starting at 9 pm, with live performances, international DJs, a string quartet, percussion group and a Lady Gaga tribute band. The CotaiArena concert and the pyrotechnic show were both broadcast live to the party.
