Melco Resorts & Entertainment Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho has praised his company’s efforts after taking down two major accolades at last week’s G2E Asia Awards at The Parisian Macao.
Melco won the awards for Best Corporate Social Responsibility Contribution as well as Best IR Non-Gaming Attraction for The House of Dancing Water at a glitzy gala dinner on the first night of G2E Asia 2019.
“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition from G2E Asia Awards,” Ho said in a statement. “Both awards further underpin Melco’s position as a leading integrated resort operator globally that constantly strives to excel in what we offer to our guests while giving back to our local community.
“These two awards recognize the dedication our colleagues have for delivering pioneering and industry-leading entertainment while always dedicating ourselves to helping those around us in society.”
Melco noted that the Best CSR Contribution award recognized the wide array of CSR programs Melco offers that encompasses environmental responsibility, responsible gaming, women’s initiatives, youth programs, education and developmental programs, and cultural and heritage preservation.
The Best IR Non-Gaming Attraction award lauded the world’s largest water-based extravaganza, having been seen by around 5.8 million people since debuting in 2010.
The G2E Asia Awards are co-organized by G2E Asia and Inside Asian Gaming.
