Drones take the spotlight
Spanning across four nights with two showings lasting 15 minutes per set, the drone gala was put on by a technology company based in Shenzhen, the same city which was designated a UNESCO City of Design in 2008. With eight shows in total, 880 drones took to the skies of Macao delighting thousands of spectators with displays of iconic Macao imagery in 3D such as the Macau Grand Prix, lanterns, dragon boats, gondolas, the Feast of the Drunken Dragon, egg tarts, bungee jumping at the Macau Tower and Mak Mak the Macao mascot.
At the same time, MGTO organised the “Macao for All Seasons” Photography Contest, aiming to encourage photography enthusiasts to capture moments from the drone shows.
