MACAU- With over 120,000 square metres of MICE space at its disposal, Cotai Strip Macao recently hosted 8,700 delegates attending Tupperware Brands Corporation’s Asia-Pacific conference "Celebrate Success, Dream it – Do it!".
The conference, which took place from 25 to 28 February, was the largest ever held at the integrated resort city, requiring the coordination of all resort operations teams, including banquet operations, which served 25,000 meals over the three-day period. Conference attendees, representing more than 15 countries, enjoyed luxurious accommodation in 5,000 rooms per night throughout The Venetian Macao; Sands Cotai Central, featuring Conrad, Sheraton and Holiday Inn; and the Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip at The Plaza Macao.
The unprecedented scale of the event involved the handling of more than 20,000 pieces of luggage, and necessitated extra measures like the scheduling of 30 additional Cotai Water Jet ferry sailings to handle the transportation of more than 8,000 arriving passengers in only three days. The setting up of a dedicated onsite check-in for all flights departing from Hong Kong International Airport gave attendees the convenience of receiving their boarding passes at Cotai Strip Macao with bags already checked to their final destinations; and with direct ferry service to the airport’s SkyPier, attendees benefited by bypassing Hong Kong immigration, creating a seamless flow from Cotai Strip Macao direct to the airport.
The 15,000-seat Cotai Arena was put to good use, accommodating the 8,700 delegates with ease for conference sessions and a gala event. The gala dinner served all 8,700 delegated and offered more than 100 buffet and food stations. It also featured seven different menus catering to the cuisines of various countries and religions.
