Macau.com is a destination marketing and travel company based in Macau, China that focuses on information and trip planning tools for visitors coming to Macau.[1] The company markets accommodation, shows, restaurants, entertainment and attractions in Macau and the Pearl River Delta region. It concentrates its business on the inbound market, primarily coming from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Australia and Southeast Asia.[2]

The company was established in 2006 with GoMacau.com as its brand. In June 2007, GoMacau.com acquired Macau's Number 1 Website, and relaunched as Macau.com.[3] This acquisition significantly extends GoMacau.com's consumer reach and helps complement two brands together. Macau.com is the premier web portal and online travel agency for hotel accommodation, shows tickets and packaged tour products. The company is a member of Ignite Media Group, a Macau-based media conglomerate with a portfolio of comprehensive media resources across the region.

Macau.com is officially registered as Macau 24 Hours Travel Agency Limited.

Macau.com signed a strategic partnership with Viva Macau airlines in December 2006 whereby the two companies committed to jointly promote Macau as a travel destination.[4] In addition, Macau.com and Macau Fisherman's Wharf launched partnership for future co-operation in Macau's event market in November 2007.[5]

As the preeminent online destination marketing company dedicated to Macau, Macau.com frequently offers many pioneering promotional activities and events, such as HKD1 for particular 5-star Macau hotel rooms,[6] unbeatable packages headlined by Macau Grand Prix and Sampras versus Federer Tennis Showdown, and the most recent “Best Rate Guarantee” program that offers the lowest online rate assurance for hotel room bookings.[7]

In March 2012, Macau.com announced a partnership with Expedia Affiliate Network to give Macau.com users access to over 149,000 hotels worldwide.[8]
