Galaxy to open convention centre and arena in Macau

MACAU will have a new large-scale conference and business event facility when the third phase of the Galaxy casino resort is expected to be completed in 2021.

Plans for the Galaxy International Convention and Exhibition Centre (GICC) are set to be presented at IBTM China in Beijing this week.

The 40,000 sqm meetings and conference space will feature a 10,000 sqm exhibition and convention hall. There will also be the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena for concerts, sporting events and other large-scale events.

GICC will join other major resorts in the Cotai area of Macau that provide expansive business events space and arenas that are integrated with hotels, entertainment and dining. These include Sands China’s Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macao and another arena at the Melco-managed Studio City, a sister property to City of Dreams.

MGM opened a resort in Cotai in 2018 followed by the unveiling of its hi-tech MGM Theatre, which can be configured to provide ballroom and banquet settings.

Galaxy Entertainment Group’s GICC is being positioned as a leading international MICE resort for planners considering conferences and events in Asia.

The opening the world’s longest seabridge and tunnel link that connects Hong Kong and Macau to Zhuhai is seen as playing an important role in establishing Galaxy’s convention centre across Asia and globally.

Galaxy sees GICC elevating the role of Macau in the Greater Bay Area, which is served by the Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuhai Bridge. The 55km bridge link across the Pearl Delta also connects international airports in the three cities.

Southern China’s Greater Bay Area, encompassing a swathe of Guangdong province with a population of 70 million across nine municipalities and the two special autonomous regions of Hong Kong and Macau, offers a new economic region that can also be serve as a destination for conference and incentive groups.
