Sanya promotional event held in Macao
On September 11th, 2018, a Sanya tourism promotional event was held at Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16. The event was the latest move by the Sanya Tourism Development Commission to promote Sanya tourism in Macao.
Guests attending the event included Zhou Peng, Deputy Director of the Economic Affairs Department at the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government of Macao SAR; Ho Huilan, head of the Destination Marketing Department at the Macao Government Tourism Office; and Zhang Jianying of the Marketing Division at the Macao Government Tourism Office.
Pang Yongda, head of the Marketing Division of the Sanya Tourism Development Commission, commented that more than 30 million tourists visit Macao every year. He added that in view of recent developments — including the opening of a direct air route between Sanya and Macao, and Hainan Province’s new 30-day visa-free travel entry policy for people from 59 countries — Sanya should make Macao a tourist source market with the aim of bringing in more tourists.
Thirteen Sanya tourism enterprises, including the Atlantis Sanya Resort, Sofitel Sanya Leeman Resort, Rosewood Sanya, and Grand Hyatt Sanya Haitang Bay Resort and Spa offered customized tourism products and packages for the promotional event. The special offers attracted attention and interest from Macao travel operators and attending guests.
