The US$1.25 billion gaming resort MGM Macau celebrates its fourth birthday on 18th December. The event is just two days before the 12th anniversary of Macau’s return to China after more than 450 years under Portuguese administration.
MGM Macau marked its four-year milestone with two parties for its 6,600 staff held at Macau Tower on 13th and 14th December. In the Christmas spirit of Twelfth Night – a festival where in medieval Europe servants would become masters and masters servants for just one day – there were special stage performances by MGM’s management team. Hong Kong celebrities Lai Yiu Cheung, Hanjin Tan and Ella Koon also entertained the guests.
In June MGM China Holdings launched a successful initial public offering on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, reportedly raising US$1.5 billion.
