Las Vegas Sands today announced the launch of SandsNewYork.com, a new website created to share information on the project, encourage community collaboration, and directly engage local Long Islanders on their ideas, questions, and concerns.
“We are not here to convince, we are here to collaborate. We are thrilled at the unprecedented amount of support we have received on this project from the local communities and we look forward to hearing from more Long Islanders who want to get involved,” said Ron Reese, Senior Vice President of Global Communications and Corporate Affairs for Las Vegas Sands. “SandsNewYork.com gives them a direct line to our team on the ground, and will empower communities to take advantage of all the opportunities this project represents.”
The website includes a page for small business owners, briefly describing the company’s local priorities and procurement processes, as well as a form for those seeking supplier opportunities. Additionally, it includes a Community Voices page, where quotes are displayed from local leaders and stakeholders who are supportive of the project, and in favor of community collaboration on the proposal.
Former New York State Governor and Sands Senior Vice President David Patterson said, “Sands is excited to take another meaningful step in connecting with community members. It has been a lot of fun to connect with our grassroots community leaders, some of which I grew up with and graduated high school with, and have real conversations on this transformational project. We welcome more community conversations that lead to even deeper local partnerships.”
