MACAU, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sands China Ltd. recognised some of its more exceptional suppliers at the 2019 Sands Supplier Excellence Awards Friday at The Venetian® Macao. The annual event is a global initiative of Sands China's parent company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., and acknowledges the cooperation and services of some of the company's most noteworthy suppliers worldwide.

"Sands China's success would not be possible without the wide variety of suppliers that work alongside us," said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. "Together, they help us deliver the outstanding experiences that our guests and visitors have come to expect at our integrated resorts. The company is very pleased to take this opportunity each year to express our gratitude to our suppliers for doing their part to keep this massive operation running smoothly. Congratulations to them all for being nominated in this year's awards, and a special thanks to our longstanding suppliers, who have been working with us for 15 years now."

Various Sands China business units and their employees nominated a total of 22 companies in this year's awards -- 15 of them local enterprises. Nominees are chosen from a pool of thousands of service providers and suppliers that do business with Sands China.

Awards were given to distinguished suppliers in nine categories: gaming; furniture, fixtures and equipment; ferry; marketing; outside services; food and beverage; operating supplies and equipment; development and project management; and facilities.

Eight out of the nine winners in this year's awards are local suppliers -- a testament to their growth and to the opportunities provided by Sands China's continuous support to local enterprises. Among them, two are run by Macao young entrepreneurs, two are SMEs, and one is a micro enterprise.

Friday's awards ceremony event featured entertainment and an appreciation dinner themed on the hit film "The Greatest Showman", with around 500 guests attending, including more than 300 representing about 160 suppliers, mostly from Macao, Hong Kong and mainland China.

Award winners are selected each year by a judging committee composed of Sands China executive management. Judges consider several criteria, including suppliers' corporate culture and sustainability, cost management, service excellence, project management, quality management, and innovation.
