Situated on China’s southern coast in the heart of Asia’s most thrilling MICE destination, the 3,896-room Sheraton Macao Hotel is the largest in both Macau and Starwoods Hotels & Resorts’ Portfolio. We recently spoke with Sally Ann Klap, director of sales, MICE, to find out how such a large hotel is able to continuously deliver customized guest and MICE experiences.
Prevue: What are Sheraton Macao’s unique selling points for event planners compared to other local venues?
Klapp: Sands Cotai Central is a destination within a destination with 100 world-class retail stores, 20 restaurants and cafes and live entertainment. Being part of an integrated resort allows Sheraton Macao Hotel to offer an “everything under one roof” concept to event planners. Sheraton Macao’s commitment to wellness is delivered through unique options that keep attendees mentally and physically at their best while on the road.
In addition to integrating breaks that recharge the body and mind, our FIT Meetings program offers wellness tips, fitness and recovery tools, healthy in-room and restaurant dining options and group workouts. Attendees can stay in shape and gain increased energy by choosing three colors from the fruits and vegetables offered in the Colour Your Plate dining program. Delicious items 500 calories or less are available. Both FIT Meetings and Colour Your Plate are programmed by Core Performance as part of Sheraton Fitness. Lastly, the expertise and adaptability of our event concierges add ease to meeting and event planning and delivery.
Can you name a few popular attractions at or near the hotel that groups can take advantage of?
