Macau’s six gaming operators should integrate the promotion of their non-gaming attractions with the city’s festivals and major annual events such as the Macau Grand Prix, Leong Sun Iok, a vice-president of the Macau Federation of Trade Unions, said last Sunday.
Leong, who heads the Gaming Employees Home, a subsidiary of the federation, spoke to reporters on the sidelines of a forum hosted by the Macau Wisdom Convergence Network, a local think tank, in Iao Hon district where he was a guest speaker.
Leong said he hoped that the government’s push for the gaming operators’ non-gaming attractions will in turn improve the economy in the city’s various districts.
“We have many festivals, celebrations and events every year, including the Macau Grand Prix, the big parade [Parade through Macau, Latin City] and the Macau International Music Festival, which are very attractive,” Leong said.
He said that by taking advantage of the festivals and similar events, the six gaming operators could use their non-gaming attractions to boost their gaming businesses as well.
