Seven days of fashion events to include shows, promotions, gala opening and local designer showcases

 

MACAO, July 27, 2018  — Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Sands Resorts Macao will stage the second Sands Macao Fashion Week from Oct. 18 to 24, 2018, with seven days of exciting and innovative fashion programmes and promotions.

Designed to showcase the many leading luxury and lifestyle fashion brands across Shoppes at Four Seasons, Shoppes at Venetian, Shoppes at Parisian and Shoppes at Cotai Central, the event will feature shows and other special events aimed at both the fashion industry and the public to enjoy.

The highlight of the week will be a glamorous fashion show for up to 220 VIP guests, media and key industry influencers. Sands Macao Fashion Week 2018 (SMFW18) will also see a series of ready-to-wear group runway shows highlighting current collections and various retail workshops and initiatives across the integrated resort.

Another focal point will be a showcase from talented local Macao designer Nuno Lopes. Lopes is the first Macao fashion designer to be featured in Vogue magazine, and also to participate in London Fashion Week. He was also recognised at Fashion Asia Awards 2016 as one of ‘Asia Top Young Fashion Designers’ and his designs are worn by socialite Paris Hilton alongside prominent Asian and international artists.

The closing show of Sands Macao Fashion Week 2018 will be hosted by the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center (CPTTM), which has once again been invited to participate as part of Sands China Ltd.’s ongoing campaign to support Macao’s cultural and creative industries. Several Macao fashion brands will showcase their exciting new collections.

Last year’s event instantly established SMFW as a major new event on the industry’s global calendar, with six days of spectacular fashion programmes and promotions that included runway and boutique shows on a catwalk that was specially created over the canals of Shoppes at The Venetian, along with fashion parades at Shoppes at Parisian and other special events open to the public.

The 2017 programme also saw exhibitions at Shoppes at Four Seasons, revealing the creme de la creme of fashion from the world’s premium fashion houses, and included an exclusive VIP gala dinner showcasing the 2018 collections by La Perla which was attended by around 200 international celebrities and fashion elite, held at The Venetian Macao’s opulent main lobby.

The event also highlighted Macao’s growing fashion industry and shined a spotlight on outstanding local designers.

David Sylvester, Executive Vice President of Global Retail, Las Vegas Sands Corp., said: “Last year’s inaugural Sands Macao Fashion Week exceeded all our expectations and immediately established itself as an essential new event on the global calendar. This year it will be even bigger and better, featuring key fashion brands alongside the local fashion industry, with cutting-edge events crowned by a fabulous show.”

Joycasino is the Most Entertaining Casino in Japan
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

During the 2019 UNLV International Conference on Gambling and Risk-Taking, several gambling experts expressed concerns about Japan and its lack of responsible gambling safeguards. Since then, the country has been working on regulations to eliminate problem gambling.

Fortunately, companies like JoyCasino have been at the forefront of fighting this menace. Unlike other gambling companies, they strive to promote responsible gaming as part of their social responsibility. This isn’t the only perk that makes the company attractive to the Japanese gaming community. It has a lot of offers that make its platform not only the most entertaining one but also customer friendly.

Here is why it is considered the best and most entertaining casino in Japan

An Enticing Welcoming Bonus

Many online casinos offer free spins on registration, but there aren’t many that have offers that match those of JoyCasino. Upon signing up, players can enjoy 200 free spins on one of the best games around- Starburst slot by NetEnt. On top of that, players can enjoy a variety of welcome bonuses:

  • 100% up to €2,000
  • 200% up to €50
  • 150% up to €300

While your second deposit can earn you a bonus of 100% of up to €300, the third one will earn you a bonus of 50% up to €400. In total, the company lives up to its name by promising a welcoming bonus of 200 free spins and 2000 euros.

Unmatched Promo Offers

On top of its bonuses, JoyCasino also has some exciting promotional offers. For instance, its cashback bonus ensures that players can get back 10% of their monthly losses on the 1st of every month. They also host weekly contests. Players stand a chance to win Samsung Mobiles and drones if they emerge as winners in these contests.

Lastly, it hosts space-themed tournaments for its users that run from Friday through Sunday. The space-themed slot machines allow players to climb up the ladder and win cash prizes as they play. They have also been known to add jackpot wins on games like Power Force. Another notable tournament is the Zombie Tournament. Anyone in Japan searching for a casino offering the most worth for their money should certainly try JoyCasino.

Play Plenty of Slot Games

The casino offers more than 200 video slot games, with a range of 3-reel classics. Spinners can enjoy games from a variety of software providers such as NetEnt, NextGen and Microgaming. There is a game for everyone with a wide range of designs and themes. Want to try generic games? JoyCasino offers titles like Aztec, Enchanted Woods, and Mermaid’s Millions, meaning that players do not have to play something far from their comfort zones.

For anyone looking to walk the fancy path, titles like Space Corsairs, Alaxe in Zombieland and Hell’s Grannies will do the trick. Anyone hunting for Jackpots can enjoy progressive offers by NetEnt and Microgaming through games like Mega Fortune and Fruit Fiesta 3-reel.

Virtual and Live Casino Games

The casino also looks out for players who would rather do something else other than spinning on the reels. They offer a chance for players to spin the roulette wheels. If a player fancies virtual card games such as baccarat, blackjack and pontoon, they can also play these on the casino’s platform. For anyone itching for live casino games, the fact that the company offers “live dealer” games that feature trained croupiers can be refreshing.

Players Can Embrace Portable Gaming

Not everyone has the time to be seated in front of a computer screen, or visit physical casinos. However, almost everyone has periods of downtime during their day that they would like to bring some fun into. As such, mobile casinos have been on the rise, and JoyCasino hasn’t been left behind when it comes to this trend.

The company offers a wide variety of slot machines and other games that players can access through their mobile-optimised website. The site supports a diversity of smartphones and tablets, including those running on Android, Windows, and iOS. They are also constantly adding more new games into their library to ensure that players are ever entertained.

Reliable Customer Support

It can be frustrating to try and reach customer support with any issues concerning gameplay. In case a problem arises, players can also rely on the customer support team to come to the rescue. They have diverse support staff who can communicate in a variety of languages, including English, Russian and Japanese. The best way to contact customer is through the live-chat on the casino website.

Japanese players need a gaming company that not only provides an entertaining gaming experience alongside diverse incentives, but also caters to their best interest. This makes JoyCasino an excellent option. The company is expected to keep optimising their gaming experience with time.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Macau casino operator Sands China has reported net revenue of US$9 million in April, a net loss of $180 million.

Under the current conditions, Sands China is exposed to monthly operating costs of around $110 million each month, in addition to development and maintenance capital expenditures of approximately $65 million and interest expenses of $25 million.

Sands China said it has taken various mitigating measures to get through the current environment, including a cost reduction programme to minimise cash outflow of non-essential items, as well as not recommending payment of a final dividend for 2019.

The company said it has around $2.4 billion in liquidity in place to keep its operations running for 12 months in the current operating environment.

“SCL believes it will be able to support its continuing operations, complete the major construction projects that are underway, and respond to the current COVID-19 Pandemic challenges,” Sands China said.
