Join in the Fabulous Festive Fun of Christmas at Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao

(Macao, Dec. 1, 2016) – With an unbeatable range of world-class attractions for families, Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao’s outdoor area will transform into a winter wonderland with a light and sound spectacular to embrace the festive season in style from Dec. 1, 2016, to Jan. 1, 2017.

The Venetian Macao® will feature wonderful decorations throughout its outdoor lagoon area, with a magnificent 48-foot Christmas tree, and entrances, lampposts, arches and pillars looking fabulously festive. The highlight of the winter celebration this year will be a dazzling new 3D light and sound spectacular which will once again delight audiences by projecting beautiful festive images on the 43,000-square-feet façade of the resort hotel. Featuring state of the art digital video mapping technology, the free admission show will run nightly, every 30 minutes from 6pm to 10:30pm.

The creative team from Artists in Motion have been working around the clock to deliver this visual feast, fresh from their latest projects “Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show” for the Hong Kong Tourism Board and lighting up the iconic Sydney Opera House as part of “Vivid Sydney”. As the leading motion design company, Artists in Motion also created the Christmas edition of the nightly Eiffel Tower Grand Illumination Show at the Parisian Macao.


The Venetian Macao’s 3D Light and Sound Spectacular

Audiences can expect to see the building transform to become beautifully decorated with Christmas trees and Venetian glass decorations, from where toy nutcrackers appear dressed as gondoliers. The scene changes into a magical palace/toy factory, with stacks of beautifully wrapped presents. Traditional Venetian Commedia Dell’arte puppets appear, take a bow and wish the audience a Merry Christmas.
