2009 Marathon Welcome Reception

December 05, 2009

Galaxy Entertainment Group (“Galaxy”) is proud to announce that its flagship property, StarWorld Hotel (“StarWorld”), has once again been chosen as the official hotel for the invited marathon athletes of the Macau International Marathon.

This is the 4th consecutive year that StarWorld has been chosen as the official hotel for the Macau International Marathon. As the title sponsor of the Macau Galaxy Entertainment International Marathon for the 6th consecutive year, Galaxy extended its warmest “Asian Heart” services to the distinguished marathon athletes by welcoming them to a cozy cocktail reception at StarWorld.

Held earlier, the cocktail reception was attended by Galaxy’s senior executives and world-class marathon athletes and coaches from China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Macau, Poland, Portugal, Tanzanya, and Ukraine. Meeting the athletes for the very first time, the senior executives shared an amazing hour with the athletes; getting to know their training and lifestyle habits.

As a strong supporter of Macau’s sports development and an active promoter of work and lifestyle balances, Galaxy continually seeks for opportunities to improve the quality of life of its employees.

This year, Galaxy gathers its employees to take on the challenge and strive for its 5th consecutive Group Award. In his welcoming remarks to the marathon athletes during the cocktail reception, Mr. Charles So, Vice President of Hotel Operations of StarWorld Hotel said that the invited marathon athletes “stay at our hotel not only heightens the Macau marathon spirit, but also encourages us to do even better.”

“Doing its best” is the perfect phrase to describe StarWorld’s hospitality services. The “Winner’s Choice” hotel endeavors to deliver its best caring services to the invited marathon athletes. Understanding that marathon running consumes a lot of the athletes’ energies, StarWorld Hotel will prep the marathon athletes with additional water bottles and a caring pre-run in-room breakfast at 3:00am on Sunday December 6.

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of People’s Republic of China and the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Macau SAR, Galaxy hopes that all participants pay tribute by committing themselves to an exceptional run, breaking records in this year’s Macau Galaxy Entertainment International Marathon.
