Ponte 16 – “Rock the World” Exhibition Exclusive Sponsor of Julien’s Auctions’ World Exhibition Tour - Macau Station
Over Hundred Pieces of Exhibits Creates a Stunning Tourist Spot
(MACAU,20 April, 2010) – Ponte 16 Resort Hotel (“Ponte 16”) is the title sponsor of the Macau station of Julien’s Auctions’ World Exhibition Tour. Themed “Rock the World”, the exhibition is going to carry more than 100 pieces of genuine rarity and collectibles from the most top-notch celebrities in the modern-day Hollywood. The exhibition will open free to public from 30 April to 26 May, 2010. The world exhibition tour is organized by Julien’s Auctions, which specializes in entertainment memorabilia and high profile estate auctions. In an auction held last November, Ponte 16 successfully bid for the white rhinestone glove of Michael Jackson (MJ) for US$350,000. The glove was worn by MJ in his first Moonwalk performance and is now an iconic item at the MJ Gallery at Ponte 16 (“MJ Gallery”). Once again, Ponte 16 and Julien’s Auctions join hands in bringing to Macau a series of MJ’s collectibles, which include his numerous stage-worn costumes, an opulent collection of furniture for his residence in Kent, England, as well as a series of autographed photos, music and moviecontracts duly signed by MJ. In addition, the exhibition also features a rich array of treasures from the most famed superstars in Hollywood, including “Superman” Christopher Reeve, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presely, Madonna, and “Titanic”’s leading lady Kate Winslet. Adding weight to this stunning list is a series of costume and props from the movie “Star Trek”. The exhibition will span from 30 April to 26 May, and for some specially selected items, the exhibition period will only be until 9 May. So don’t miss this unique opportunity of viewing over hundred of starry exhibits at the same time!
“The MJ Gallery has received immense popularity among tourists since opening, and has been officially endorsed by the Macau Government Tourist Office as one of the city’s “must-see” attractions, which subsequently helps bring more visitors to the property. By sponsoring the exhibition of Julien’s Auctions, we aim to provide a unique travel experience to visitors from around the globe, which will help widen our customer base and enhance the attraction of Ponte 16 and Macau worldwide,” said Dr. Ambrose So, Chairman of Ponte 16.
Being the kick-off station of the world tour, Ponte 16 believes that the exhibition can serve as a great attraction to pop-culture lovers. To add to the excitement, Ponte 16 will offer a series of limited-edition souvenirs for sale during the exhibition period.
All exhibits are available for public bidding at the auction organized by Julien’s Auctions in Las Vegas this June. An exquisitely-made auction catalog (limited edition) will also be available for sale at the exhibition – members of MJ Fans Club can enjoy exclusive priority order.
