After enchanting audiences in Bangkok last year, The International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) will celebrate the IIFA Weekend and IIFA Awards in the exotic locale of The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel. The 10th edition of IIFA will be held at the picturesque resort during June 11 – 13, 2009. The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel, like its sister-property in Las Vegas, is a Renaissance Venice-themed property featuring stunning replicas of Venice landmarks. The hotel offers 3,000 all-suite guest rooms, one-million square feet of retail space, the largest casino in the world, 1.2 million square feet of meeting, convention and exhibition space, and an arena that can host up to 15,000 seats.
Like always, the IIFA Weekend is a culmination of mega events that brings Indian cinema to the world. The IIFA Weekend includes the high-profile FICCI IIFA Global Business Forum, the IIFA Fashion Extravaganza, world premieres of Indian films and the climax of the Weekend, the spectacular IIFA Awards. The IIFA Awards is the biggest South Asian media event and is considered among the most-watched global annual events.
