United States, California, Los Angeles – 11-14-2019 ( — Macao Government Tourism Office USA hosts celebratory gala in Los Angeles 


This December, Macao will be filled with celebratory festivals, parades, art displays and more to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of Macao Special Administrative Region.

In the US, Macao will bring the celebrations to sunny Los Angeles on November 14th. Celebrating not only 20 years of a prosperous Macao S.A.R., but also a banner year for MGTO-USA partnerships, MGTO-USA will welcome US trade and media guests to the “Establishment of Macao S.A.R. 20th Anniversary Gala.” Held at Playa Studios, guests of the gala will enjoy a curated dinner by well-known Chef Telmo of Uma Casa, who recently trained in Macao, Macanese entertainment, prize giveaways and more.


“There is no better way to wrap up a successful 2019 and celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of Macao S.A.R. than with our media and trade partners over a delicious Macanese dinner,” said MGTO-USA General Manager Julie Avery-Cuesta. “After a wonderful year filled with experiential consumer events, press and trade familiarization trips, trade campaigns and more, we look forward to continuing the excitement into 2020.” 


Beyond the anniversary celebrations, travelers to Macao can also enjoy one of the many winter festivities such as: the 19th Macau Food Festival, 66th Macau Grand Prix, Macao Light Festival, Macao International Marathon, Macao International Parade, and 4th International Film Festival Awards.
