Wow how I wish South Africa had similar developments but I guess such things take time and require a lot money.

The only problem with some of these types of shows is that they get old and tired quite fast. When theres music involved too, it would drive some people insane if they work near it and have to listen to it each time. The laser show is great though, as it reminds me of elements of the Hong Kong show, although on a smaller scale.

Marina IR seeks more land to expand
By David Lim

LAS Vegas Sands, the operator of Marina Bay Sands integrated resort, has sought more land from the Government to expand its operations here as demand is rapidly catching up with supply, said Mr Sheldon Adelson, its chairman and chief executive.

"The demand that this property has created for Mice is rapidly taking us to the point where we'll even have to ration space," he said, adding that it could happen within 12 to 18 months.

Mice refers to meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions. The IR's Sands Expo and Convention Centre has 1.3 million sq ft of space for such use.

"We need all the land we can get. We are burdened by our success," he added.

Mr Michael Leven, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands, said that the Gardens by the Bay nearby could have space for an "additional hospitality product".

He added that the company is looking into developing plots of land near the IR. Both men spoke to the local and foreign media at a press conference yesterday to mark the grand opening of the IR, which also marked the official opening of its ArtScience Museum.

The United States-based Las Vegas Sands also announced that its US$6-billion (S$7.6-billion) property has drawn 11 million visitors since it opened in April last year. This month, the IR filled 87 per cent of its more than 2,500 hotel rooms.

Mr Adelson said that the company expected a return on investment in about four years.

Since the two IRs - the other being Resorts World Sentosa - opened last year, they and other tourist attractions plus spending in these facilities have contributed about S$3.7 billion to Singapore's gross domestic product in the first three quarters of last year, according to the Economic Survey of Singapore.

The Government announced in 2006 that it expected each IR to contribute S$2.7 billion to Singapore's GDP by 2015. Las Vegas Sands is also "very anxious" to expand in India and is planning a massive 15-billion euro (S$26-billion) strip-style casino project in Spain, said Mr Adelson. The strip could have 20,000 hotel rooms and millions of square feet of retail and convention space.

The IR has inked over 1,155 Mice deals and is expected to bring around 670,000 people to the Sands Expo and Convention Centre through next year. Yesterday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officially launched the iconic ArtScience Museum, which will be open to the public from tomorrow.

The ceremony was attended by National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan and Mr S. Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Education and Trade and Industry. The museum has 21 galleries, and will feature a permanent exhibition on its top floor, plus three opening ones.

Visit www.marinabaysands.com/ArtScienceMuseum/ for more information.

A free 13-minute musical light and water show called Wonder Full also started yesterday.

For more on show timings, visit www.marinabaysands.com/wonderfull/

By March 10, it will run at least twice every night

Tourists who are not guest can go up to a certain section of the Skypark at a cost of S$20, but the pool is exclusively for hotel guests.

pool is exclusive for guests only but you can go to the sky park (observatory floor) for $20. Cheaper than the flyer!
