Recognizes the contributions of trade partners across AsiaIn a bid to acknowledge the significant contributions made by its trade partners, Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao held the Sales Excellence Awards 2014 dinner event Thursday, March 5 at Conrad Macao, Cotai Central. The ceremony presented a total of 14 sales and marketing awards to trade partners in recognition of their efforts.
The annual Sales Excellence Awards aims to recognize distinguished contributions from trade partners from the leisure, MICE and online industries who have worked closely with The Venetian® Macao; Conrad Macao, Cotai Central; and Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central and contributed to an outstanding year for the company. Around 200 guests, including trade and MICE partners, were in attendance.
Winners eLong.com, China Travel Service Gongbei Port Guangdong Co., Ltd and GZL International Travel Service Ltd each took home one of three Trade Partner of the Year awards – in the online, MICE and leisure categories, respectively.
During the award ceremony, DreamWorks characters appeared and engaged guests through activities of the DreamWorks Experience, in part to recognize the role played by trade partners in the success of the interactive and family-friendly DreamWorks Experience since its launch at Sands® Cotai Central in July 2013.
“We are delighted to have our valuable trade partners across Asia here today to join us for this celebration of our joint accomplishments in 2014,” said Brendon Elliott, Vice President of Sales & Resort Marketing, Sands China Ltd. “It is important that we continue to recognize and strengthen our long-term partnerships with our trade partners who are key to our success.”
“We have received valuable comments and feedback from our eight-person judging panel,” he added. “By sending compliments to our trade partners through sales and marketing awards we hope to encourage them to promote Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao’s products in increasingly innovative ways.”
The achievements of Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao in 2014 are solid evidence of the successful partnership between the integrated resort and its trade partners. With more international hotel and retail brands partnering with Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao in 2015, the company will keep strengthening long-term relationships and encouraging continued support from them in the coming years.
