Las Vegas Sands said it plans to open the first phase of its US$5.5 billion Marina Bay Sands development on 27 April 2010.
Sheldon Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands, said the integrated resort will immediately go to work by hosting its first event – the Inter-Pacific Bar Association’s annual conference – just days after opening its doors.
The second phase will open on June 23 as part of the grand opening. This will include the opening of the SkyPark and Event Plaza.
The dates were announced in a statement by Las Vegas Sands on its website.
In October, one of the property’s two state-of-the-art theatres will welcome Disney’s The Lion King. The second theatre, which will also open later this year, will be home to a variety of special events and famous headline acts.
The iconic Marina Bay Sands museum is expected to open by December. It will not only feature international blockbuster exhibitions, but it will also serve as a symbolic welcome to guests – with its unique lotus-inspired design – from around the globe.
