Ice World, one of Asias biggest indoor ice events, is returning to the Venetian Macau for the second time. Ice World 2012 will be held from 19 May until 16 September 2012 at CotaiExpo Hall F.

Supported by the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO), the 18,000-square-foot indoor ice hall will be kept at a chilly minus 8 degrees Celsius, and will be divided into ten zones featuring ice sculptures.

 This years exhibits include a wide range of new themed areas and sculptures: some of Macaus signature icons, such as the lotus flower, pandas, Macau Grand Prix and Macau heritage sites. Other exhibits include a Fairy Tale Forest, featuring a pumpkin carriage with the backdrop of a frozen waterfall and lake; famous international landmarks; Russian Magic Maze; Asia Delights; an ice labyrinth; the fun Double Dragon Slide; and a musical hall and gallery, featuring an iced piano, guitar, pipe organ and drum set.

Its our pleasure to co-organise Ice World with The Venetian Macau again this year and we are very proud to bring such a unique exhibition to Macau for the second straight year, said Bai Wei, General Manager of Heilongjiang Provincial Ice and Snow Art Development Co. Ltd. Our Harbin craftsmen are among the finest ice carvers in the world. The Ministry of Commerce and the Department of Cultural Industry of the Ministry of Culture have selected the Heilongjiang Ice Sculptures as one of Chinas Outstanding Cultural Exports and Items. This spectacular ice exhibition will be an amazing, entertaining and interactive event for all visitors and will let them walk away with an unforgettable summer.

 Gene Capuano, Vice President of Convention & Exhibition Operations, Venetian Macau Ltd, said, About 230,000 people visited last year, averaging about 1,600 visitors per day. To meet popular demand, we extended the exhibition period for an additional month to allow more people to come and see the fantastic display of ice sculptures, and to cool off during the hot Macau summer. With completely new attractions this year, we know that both residents and tourists alike will enjoy the spectacular universal appeal of this unique showcase of ice-sculpting artistry.

Ice World 2012 will be open to the public from 12 noon to 8 pm daily, with a general admission price of MOP 100. Hooded coats are provided for warmth and comfort, but visitors are encouraged to dress for the cold, which includes wearing closed-toe shoes and long pants. Socks, gloves and hats may be purchased on site, and limited numbers and sizes of boots will be available for rent as well.
