New thinking from Galaxy Macau Event Planners
Imagine the sound of waves gently lapping against a white-sand shoreline … and that’s just the beginning for your conference at Galaxy Macau™, the New Palace of Asia. One of Asia’s leading integrated destination resorts for meetings and incentives, Galaxy Macau features myriad innovative meeting venues, exciting entertainment attractions, award-winning local and international cuisine, and signature “World Class, Asian Heart” hospitality – all of which helps event planners add flair to any business or leisure program for a function to remember.
The centerpiece of the New Palace of Asia is the Grand Resort Deck and the world’s largest Skytop Wave Pool, which bring a Southeast Asian-style beach holiday experience to the heart of the city. From wedding ceremonies under the stars, to team-building activities like beach volleyball, to new product launches by the water, the Grand Resort Deck is an excellent venue for special events and general leisure alike, one which can’t be found anywhere else.
The innovation continues with UA Galaxy Cinemas, a nine-screen, 3D-ready cineplex with capacity for up to 1,000 people. Performances, meetings, conferences and business presentations are all enhanced with state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment and luxurious theater seating. Those booking one of the four stylish Director’s Club can indulge in gourmet catering and butler service.
Adjacent to UA Galaxy Cinemas is East Square. An elegant, 2,100-square-meter venue with a 19-meter-high glass atrium and multiple LED screens, it’s perfect for medium-sized events and exhibitions. At night, corporate groups are welcome to unwind at CHINA ROUGE, Galaxy Macau’s exclusive, members-only performance lounge conceptualized by famed Hong Kong designer Alan Chan. Inspired by the colorful nightlife of 1930s Shanghai, CHINA ROUGE has played host to a number of luxury product launches, celebrity performances and corporate parties.
This palatial integrated destination resort also features some of the finest five-star accommodation available, with 2,200 rooms, suites and villas offered across three luxury properties: Galaxy Hotel, Hotel Okura Macau and Banyan Tree Macau. Each has its own unique accommodation style and meeting space venues.
Galaxy Hotel embodies the warm, vibrant ambience of a tropical holiday resort where Asian hospitality comes to life. Japan’s legendary Hotel Okura, renowned for its perfect marriage of simplicity and elegance, is also a favorite among business travelers for its focus on delivering moments of kindness to guests. And Banyan Tree, the Southeast Asian-style “Sanctuary for the Senses”, features a magnificent, 1,330-square-meter Grand Ballroom and its signature, award-winning Banyan Tree Spa.
Of course, no event would be complete without food. Since opening just two years ago, Galaxy Macau has quickly become known as one of Macau’s favorite dining destinations. Event planners can choose from the largest selection of pan-Asian and international cuisine under one roof. Also, any restaurant at Galaxy Macau can cater its cuisine to any venue within the resort.
One of the most unique aspects of hosting events at the New Palace of Asia is the fact that it is truly integrated. Galaxy Macau’s hotel and banquet event team offers seamless, one-stop service, bringing together every aspect of an event – from meeting room and function space rental, to accommodation, to restaurant and transportation bookings, to entertainment, to floral and other support services – into one easy and convenient master bill.
“MICE at Galaxy Macau goes beyond meetings and incentives,” said Mr. Paul Town, Vice President for Revenue Management & Sales at Galaxy Macau. “It’s a place to enjoy truly unique experiences and entertainment in unconventional venues. Event planners are very excited about the endless possibilities at the New Palace of Asia.
“We’ve recently introduced even more unique offerings to help event planners meet the specific needs of their groups and produce long-lasting memories. If you want to add a little ‘flavor’ to your team-building event, try our creative sushi-making and Thai cooking classes. Active types might want to challenge themselves – and their colleagues! – with a game of beach volleyball. We’ve also got the ability to put on 3D lecture presentations, elaborately produced Indian wedding ceremonies, poolside fashion shows with a catwalk that actually crosses the Banyan Tree pool, London taxi city parades, and so much more. There are simply so many creative possibilities for event planners at Galaxy Macau.”
