During the quarter, MGM had hosted a variety of exciting events in Macau. In August, MGM collaborated with Robb Report Hong Kong to present MGM x RR1 Culinary Masters Macau for a four-day deluxe dining extravaganza – where a team of international and local award-winning chefs came together to create gourmet meals featuring the world’s top wines and delicacies for international guests from over 10 countries. The event fully demonstrates Macau’s unique position as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and its cultural attributes fusing Chinese and Western elements.

Also in August, Asian renowned band Mayday dazzled in a one-night exclusive concert at MGM COTAI with their megahits in their first outdoor performance in Macau. The concert took place against the stunning backdrop of MGM COTAI’s jewelry box design, creating a mesmerizing night view of the skyline, as another testament to MGM’s dedication to providing diverse cultural tourism experiences.

As a supporter of cultural tourism, MGM again collaborated with world-renowned Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos to present a large-scale art installation Valkyrie Miss Dior at MGM COTAI. While at the MGM Theater, the Group presented the signature exhibition titled To Infinity and Beyond, which drew on the avant-garde concept of “ART-TECH-TAINMENT” to showcase artworks created since the 1960s by prestigious Chinese contemporary artists Hsiao Chin, as an initiative to support the city-wide international event Art Macao organized by the Macao SAR government.

At MGM MACAU, we hosted an art appreciation exhibition with Buccellati in September at the Grande Praca. The Timeless Beauty with Century-Old Craftsmanship exhibition showcased some exquisite collections and demonstrated the exceptional craftsmanship of the refined Italian jewelry maker to the public in Macau.

“MGM has always trailblazed the innovative fusion of ‘Art+Tourism’, creating art and cultural programs of international standard that seamlessly integrate into our daily lives. We are committed to developing Macau into a global and diversified tourist destination through our concession commitments,” said Kenneth Feng.
