Centrally located in Macao. The Parisian Macao features a luxurious shopping mall, an outdoor pool and water park. The French-themed hotel also has a half-sized replica of the iconic Eiffel Tower. A selection of relaxing massages and nurturing treatments can be enjoyed at the onsite Spa centre.

There is a direct undercover walkway from The Parisian Macao to Cotai Expo, which takes about 10 minutes’ walk. The hotel is a 6-minute drive from Macao Ferry Terminal, a 10-minute drive from Taipa Ferry Terminal and an 8-minute drive from Macau International Airport. A free shuttle service is available from Macao Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal and Macao Taipa Ferry Terminal to the property.


Macao is a city and special administrative region of China in the western Pearl River Delta by the South China Sea. Macao was a Portuguese colony for 300 years, a heritage marked by a wonderful cultural hybridity that manifests itself in all aspects of life: Chinese temples stand on maritime-themed Portuguese tiles; the sound of Cantonese permeates streets with Portuguese names; and when you're hungry, it could be Chinese dim sum, pastéis de nata (Portuguese egg tarts) or Macanese minchi (ground meat stir-fried with potatoes) that come to the rescue.


The full program will be available in winter 2020

Planned Workshops at COSC 2021:


  • IOSA Deep dive

This workshop is aimed at providing you with background information to help you more fully understand IOSA Standards and Recommended Practices, their intent, their foundation, their history and more importantly how to comply with them.  Bring your IOSA questions, problems and concerns and we will do all we can to help you.


  • Inadvertent Slide Deployment

The issue of inadvertent slide deployment remains a concern for many airlines, but not an issue for some.  This workshop intends to take a look at the scale of the issue worldwide, discuss what works for some and not others and take a look at some of the potential solutions. 


  • Cabin Crew Workload Management

Cabin crew workload appears to be increasing for many reasons.  This workshop intends to look to the future and attempt to identify to what extent can we help manage cabin crew workload and what impact it have on communication, fatigue, customer service and safety compliance.
