Location

Sands Macao is the venue for ABU TV Song Festival 2014

Macau is one of two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China with the other being Hong Kong. It lies on the western side of the Pearl River Delta across from Hong Kong to the east, bordered by Guangdong Province to the north and facing the South China Sea to the east and south . It has the population of 607,500 people [4] living in an area of 29.5 km2, making Macau the most densely populated state in the world. Macau was administered by Portugal from the mid-16th century until late 1999 when sovereignty was transferred back to China under the Sino-Portuguese Joint Declaration.

Initially, the 1800-seated Venetian Theatre was chosen to be the venue for the 2014 edition.[5] The venue was later changed to Sands Theatre, part of Sands Macao complex.[2] The Sands Macao is a casino located in Macau Peninsula, of the host city; and is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation.[6] It comprises a 229,000 square feet (21,300 m2) casino, and a 289-suite hotel. The Theatre itself which will host the festival, has a seating capacity of 660, making it a much smaller venue than the initially chosen Venetian Theatre.

Teledifusao de Macau, commonly known as TDM, will be the host broadcaster for the festival on 25 October 2014.[1]
