Sheldon Adelson, Chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands, said: “We remain enthusiastic about our future growth opportunities in Asia, which will be enhanced through the introduction of our Four Seasons Tower Suites Macao later this year, the Londoner Macao throughout 2020 and 2021 and the expansion of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore thereafter.”
Adelson added Sands is aggressively pursuing development opportunities in Osaka, Japan, where regulation on integrated resorts is firming up.
The target of launching casinos in the country in time for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020 will not be achieved, but a new deadline, the World Expo in 2025, is now in sights.
