Sands China, a majority-held subsidiary of resort developer Las Vegas Sands Corp., has announced September 20, 2012 as the opening day for the second phase of its Sands Cotai Central integrated resort. The new facilities due to be opened include the first of two hotel towers from Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central, with a second tower opening in early 2013.

"The opening of the Sheraton Macao Hotel at Sands Cotai Central represents another milestone in my vision for the Cotai Strip," said Las Vegas Sands and Sands China chairman Sheldon Adelson. "I'm very happy to see Sheraton join our growing family of integrated resorts on the Cotai Strip. Sands China remains committed to establishing Macao as a world centre of tourism and leisure, and Asia's number one business and leisure destination. The addition of Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and its impressive array of luxury accommodation is an important development towards reaching that goal."

Sands China president and chief executive officer Edward Tracy says, "Our team members worked incredibly hard to launch Sands Cotai Central back in April; they've worked equally hard to introduce the expanded facilities of Sands Cotai Central to Macao this September. All of us are excited to unveil this latest development and we are already looking forward to serving our visitors with the opening of our next phase in early 2013."

The hotel is the world's largest Sheraton at 3,896 guestrooms, as well as the largest hotel in Macao. The hotel's Kashgar grand ballroom will offer nearly 53,000 square feet (4,900 square metres) of pillarless meeting and event space.
