As part of a significant revitalization effort by Sands China, the Iec Long Fireworks Factory will have theme games and augmented reality (AR) components from the firm to better showcase its heritage. By year’s end, certain events could take place, and the AR component is anticipated to debut in the first part of the following year.
The historic buildings of the factory are now undergoing restoration work by the Macau government, which is anticipated to last until 2025. To protect the park’s biological ecosystem and historic structures, the restoration is being done in stages.
Sands China also plans to promote the region as a Chinese-Portuguese wedding photography location in Macau by creating a pedestrian path from Taipa Houses-Museum to the Iec Long Fireworks Factory.
Sands also intends to convert Pátio da Eterna Felicidade, a venue on the Macau Peninsula side, into a location for artists. In order to draw more people, Rua Das Estalagens, which is close to the Ruins of S. Paul, will also be revitalised and embellished.
During a celebration of China’s National Day, Ho Iat Seng, the Chief Executive of Macau, expressed pleasure with the efforts made by casino operators to provide non-gaming products. He said that each of the six Macau casino operators has been upholding their obligations under their contracts with the government. He recognised, however, that there was still room for improvement in terms of drawing foreign visitors to the area.
