Macao, January 24, 2024 —Wynn is committed to promoting "tourism + education" and creating educational tour programs in support of the Macao SAR Government's efforts toward promoting the sustainable development of educational tours. Therefore, Wynn is pleased to be introducing "Wynn Educational Tour", a brand new "tourism education" program that gives students a powerful tool for growth and progress. Through this educational tour at Wynn, students will gain an in-depth understanding of the hospitality industry, encounter real-life situations while learning about day-to-day hotel operations, discover the potential of reaching exciting new horizons, and delve into Macao's rich culture from a new perspective – all with the aim of ultimately transforming Macao into a highly sought-after destination for educational tours.
