Talking Macao in Auckland

Travel trade and media were updated on Macao’s World Centre of Tourism & Leisure branding over an educational presentation and lunch in Auckland on Wednesday. Richard Froggatt, sales & marketing manager in New Zealand with Macao Government Tourism Office, highlighted the July 2018 opening of the new Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao 55km road link, including a 29.6km bridge. Other developments to watch for include the Light Rail Cruiser – Macao’s first mass transport system – set to open in 2019. There are also 12,750 rooms to be added to the ‘pool’ by hotels currently under construction.
