Ahead of the highly anticipated opening of Galaxy International Convention Center (GICC) – Macau’s premier MICE destination – in the first half of 2021, Galaxy Integrated Resorts will showcase this brand new events facility at the IT&CM China 2020 virtual event in August.
"We look forward to participating in IT&CM China’s new virtual event format this year," Joey Pather, Senior Vice President, MICE Operations and Sales, New Resort for Galaxy Entertainment Group said. "With GICC as the newest addition to Macau’s MICE scene next year, it will be one of the most technologically advanced MICE destination in Asia, offering 5G for high-speed connectivity and live streaming of content. We are witnessing an accelerating trend of more hybrid events, where people meet both on site at events venues and online. Meeting organizers who take advantage of the digital hybrid format will undoubtedly create innovative events in future. GICC will soon have the infrastructure and technology in place to become best in class in global digital and simulcast communication."
Seamlessly situated within the Galaxy Integrated Resorts precinct, GICC will offer 40,000m2 of versatile meeting space, a 650-seat auditorium, the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena and a luxurious new 700-room Andaz Macau hotel – all in one location. For large-scale exhibitions, GICC offers 10,000m2 of pillar-less convention and exhibition areas that can cater for 7,000 delegates. Galaxy Arena will play host to major sports events, world-class concerts, thrilling fight nights and corporate launches. The arena’s impressive design, state-of-the-art audio-visual, lighting and communication systems set the stage for events of any kind.
