It was an occasion that proudly highlighted Macau’s eminent status as a “World Centre of Tourism and Leisure”.
The “Experience Macao, Unlimited” roadshow, orchestrated by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO), was a spellbinding and informative event that unfolded from October 12 to 15 at the One Utama Shopping Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The participation of SJM (Sociedade de Jogos de Macau) added a touch of grandeur to the showcase, bringing to life the enchanting charm of Macau under the prestigious Lisboa brand.
Indulging in Luxury and a Fusion of Cultures
As we entered the venue, we were instantly captivated by the opulent and artistically designed booth that represented SJM. The booth’s design masterfully fused the splendor of Eastern and Western cultures, offering a tantalizing glimpse of the grandeur awaiting visitors in Macau. Guests were treated to a visual feast, with an array of luxurious hotel towers, a tantalizing selection of global cuisine, world-class spa and wellness facilities, and a shopping experience that catered to every desire. The versatile convention spaces showcased by the Grand Lisboa Palace and Grand Lisboa Hotel, both integral parts of SJM’s portfolio, provided a glimpse into the extraordinary experiences that Macau offers to travelers.

SJM’s commitment went beyond promoting travel; it was about curating an unforgettable journey through the heart of Macau. The meticulously planned activities promised guests an opportunity to craft lasting memories. One of the highlights was the stamp collection activity, offering the chance to win enticing prizes, including complimentary accommodation and a delectable buffet breakfast, courtesy of SJM. These prizes underscored the brand’s dedication to providing exceptional hospitality. SJM further wowed the audience with the introduction of the exclusive “Lisboa Luxury Stay Package” and the “Stylish Travel Package.” These packages were tailored for travelers seeking a touch of luxury, emphasizing that SJM left no stone unturned in ensuring that guests’ travel experiences surpassed all expectations.
For culinary enthusiasts, SJM’s commitment to crafting exquisite dining experiences was a true revelation. Collaborations with world-renowned chefs for events like the “MICHELIN Star Table” highlighted the brand’s devotion to the art of gastronomy. The prospect of a lavish French feast, co-hosted by two three-MICHELIN-starred restaurants, including Robuchon au Dôme at the Grand Lisboa Hotel, left visitors eagerly anticipating the November dates. Another tantalizing prospect was the “Chef’s Table: A Symphony of Senses” scheduled for December. This event promised to be a fusion of culinary excellence, bringing together the best culinary talents. SJM’s dining ventures, including partnerships with esteemed chefs like José Avillez and Alfonso Iaccarino, have garnered international acclaim over their 50-year history in Macau’s culinary scene.
Beyond the realm of food, SJM has consistently advocated for culture and sports in Macau. The event coincided with the “Miffy Creative Show – Travel in Style,” hosted at the Grand Lisboa Palace. It was heartwarming to witness SJM’s support for the arts, particularly in bringing character exhibitions like “Miffy” to Macau. The “MOONLIGHT SPLENDOUR – SJM Lantern Festival” was yet another testament to SJM’s commitment to promoting art and culture. It offered visitors an opportunity to appreciate contemporary takes on traditional large-scale lantern art by artists from Asia.
