Chairman Sheldon Adelson said: “We remain enthusiastic about our future growth opportunities in Asia. This year, we will introduce approximately two million square feet of luxurious suite accommodations on the Cotai Strip with the opening of the Grand Suites at Four Seasons Macao and The Londoner Tower Suites.
“Additional tourism and entertainment amenities of The Londoner Macao will debut throughout 2020 and 2021. Looking further ahead, the expansion of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore will meaningfully increase our suite capacity and introduce a state-of-the-art entertainment arena, both of which should contribute to future growth. We are also aggressively pursuing additional development opportunities in new markets, including Japan.”
