It also supports professional users with TETRA coverage.

At 10.5 million square feet, The Venetian Macao is big enough to hold 90 Boeing 747 jumbo jets. The hotel offers 3,000 all-suite guest rooms and with one million square feet of retail space, 1.2 million square feet of meeting, convention and exhibition space, and the 15,000-seat Venetian Arena.
