Pacquiao puts Macau on fight map


Dino Couto, a lecturer in events management at Macau’s Institute for Tourism Studies, said the Pacquiao fight would “bring some freshness to the events landscape in Macau.”

“The city has long hungered for diversifying its events portfolio by offering a wide variety of choices for tourists, as well as the local people,” he said. “The short-term effects they bring are probably unapparent yet. However, in the long run, it raises the prestige and brand image that Macau is capable of hosting different events.”
