Macao Business Tourism Introduction



MACAO is one of Asia’s newest and most exciting Business Tourism destinations, after a period of rapid and unprecedented infrastructure development. It is a city of great contrasts being only 31.3 km2 in size yet the home to Asia’s largest fully integrated convention and exhibition centre; a city of world heritage stature that also boasts one of the world’s most spectacular and modern skylines; a city that blends the rich traditions of Chinese and Portuguese cultures which is reflected in its lifestyle, food, restaurants, architecture and festivities.

Macao has also diversified its offerings to Business Tourism visitors and incentive travelers in recent years to provide designer shopping, luxury hotels and resorts as well as many more dining and entertainment options.

Macao is an ideal incentive destination to reward the very best achievers, whether they want to be pampered at luxurious resorts, be entertained, engage in high adventure or to be part of an exhilarating team building programme.

Hotel Rooms

Currently, Macao has a total of 29,725 hotel rooms spread across 73 hotel premises that range from 5-star deluxe to 2-star hotels. There will be about 6,300 additional rooms in the market upon completion of 3 new hotels in the upcoming 2 years. 

Diverse Entertainment Offering

Macao is a city on the move, but it never loses its unique blend of European and Chinese cultures that have evolved over four centuries.  Macao's architecture, religious rituals, customs and cuisines reflect Macao's unique cultural heritage - Macao is home 25 UNESCO-listed World Heritage sites!

Macanese food, which is a fusion of Portuguese, African, Southeast Asian and Chinese cooking, has begun to gain international recognition after being enjoyed by locals for decades.  In these recent years, Macao has become more firmly planted on the map as one of the world's culinary destinations - following an influx of internationally renowned restaurant brands from around the world and celebrity chefs that takes Macao’s gastronomic scene to new heights.

Varied shopping districts in Macao ranging from multi-brand shopping centres to fashion boutiques, from Chinese antique shops to popular daily flea markets can surely fulfill the shoppers’ desire. Visitors can also enjoy “The House of Dancing Water”, the world’s largest and most spectacular water-based show directed by Franco Dragone, at the City of Dreams. For a thrilling adventure, visitors can try the Sky Jump or Skywalk at the 338 meters high Macau Tower. Visitors now can add health and wellness to their list as the largest integrated wellness centre of its kind in the world, the TAIVEXMALO Day Hospital & Spa, has opened in Macao.

Accessibility

Getting around in Macao for meetings and events has never been easier.  Macao is accessible from air (the Macau International Airport is only 15 minutes to most hotels), sea with ferry services to Hong Kong and China and also to the Hong Kong International Airport and by land (Barrier Gate in Macao Peninsula and the Cotai Frontier Post). Incidentally the new SkyPier at Hong Kong International Airport makes air-to-sea transfers, and vice versa, a breeze these days.
