Macau.- SJM Resorts is taking part in the Macao Week in Shandong-Qingdao mega roadshow, organised by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO). The event, which started yesterday and will continue until June 12 at the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center, aims to showcase the tourism offerings of Macau to mainland Chinese residents.
As one of the key participants, SJM will use its booth to highlight its hotels, dining services and other facilities. It says its booth design “draws inspiration from the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort, showcasing a magnificent fusion of European architectural style and Chinoiserie elegance and promote Macau as a world-class tourist destination.”
The company’s mascot, “Sam the Rooster,” will make appearances to engage with attendees and distribute souvenirs, and SJM will offer promotions, discounts and lucky draws.
