Construction of Marina Bay Sands Hotel Towers Reaches Final Floor

Formal Topping Off Ceremony Scheduled for July 8

Singapore (June 25, 2009) — Construction of the Marina Bay Sands™ high-rise hotel towers has reached the top floors ahead of a ceremony on July 8,when Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) will formally celebrate the completion of the three 55-story hotel towers. When fully completed, the three hotel towers will feature more than 2,500 luxury hotel rooms and suites.

“We are certainly excited to have reached the top floor of the hotel towers
and on July 8 we hope all Singaporeans will join us as we celebrate another
milestone in the development of this iconic resort and come one step closer to
opening the doors and showing it off to the rest of the world,” said Sheldon G.
Adelson, the company’s chairman and chief executive officer.

Mr. Adelson, who will be in Singapore for the ceremonial event, said that
after the topping off is completed, the next step in the construction process will be placing the one hectare Sands SkyPark™ on top of the three hotel towers. The sky park, which will sit more than 650 feet (200 metres) off the ground, is currently being fabricated offsite and will need 14 separate lifts to get all of its pieces atop the hotel towers. When opened, the sky park will feature three swimming pools, several restaurants and bars, extensive landscaped gardens, and tunning views of the Singapore skyline.

Marina Bay Sands will also feature approximately 1.25 million square feet
(120,000 square metres) of meeting and convention facilities, two world-class
theatres, expansive shopping and entertainment options, restaurants from the
world’s top celebrity chefs, and an arts and exhibition museum.
