Macau's hotel giants have been chanelling their competetiveness into community action – by battling to make the best video for charity.
To celebrate its 8th anniversary, smallWORLD Experience, a Macau-based management event company, invited five local hotels to engage in a fundraising competition on September 6, 2016.
The five competitors – Galaxy Macau, Grand Hyatt, JW Marriot & Ritz Carlton, Starwood Macau and Studio City Hotel – were tasked with designing and producing a stop motion video over the course of the day.
The event raised money for Cradle of Hope – Associação Berço da Esperança, an organisation that has been supporting underprivileged children in Macau for the past 23 years.
Winners were announced during an evening function at Bene, Sheraton Macao. Galaxy Macau came out on top, with Starwood Macao and Grand Hyatt gaining second and third place respectively.
At the event, smallWORLD Experience pledged to organise annual fundraising events in cities where the company is based.
“We plan to launch at least once a year this kind of event in all the markets where we operate: Macau, Hong Kong, Mainland China and Vietnam”, says Bruno Simões, executive director of smallWORLD Experience.
