The founder of the Las Vegas Sands group, Sheldon Adelson, died Monday through Tuesday at the age of 87 from cancer, the company said in a statement.
A financial pillar of the Republican Party, Sheldon Adelson was a staunch supporter of Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
His company noted in its press release the visionary side of Mr. Adelson who, in the tourism industry, is the craftsman of integrated hotel complexes. “In Las Vegas, Macau and Singapore, Mr. Adelson’s vision for integrated resorts has transformed the sector, changed the trajectory of the company he founded and rethought tourism in each of these markets,” he said. she commented.
“Its impact on the industry will be eternal,” she said.
Two resorts in Las Vegas
The casino magnate, whose group owns two luxurious resorts on the Las Vegas Strip – The Venetian and The Palazzo – and casinos in Macao and Singapore, had largely worked in favor of the Republican president.
In Israel, his generosity has amply benefited Benjamin Netanyahu through the free daily Israel Hayom which Mr. Adelson founded in 2007 and which is today one of the most widely distributed in Israel.
This is where Sheldon Adelson will be buried. A commemorative ceremony should then be held in Las Vegas “at a later date,” finally said the Sands group.
