Macau International kicks off fashion, accessories, watches and jewellery RFP

By Kristiane Sherry |

Macau International Airpot Co is seeking a single operator to manage two airside units.

Macau International Airport has opened a Request for Proposals (RFP) as it seeks a single retail operator to offer fashion, accessories, watches and jewellery in two airside departures units, totalling 574sqm.

The contract, which is due to run until November 2030, includes the right to operate Shop 7 and Shop 8 in the passenger terminal building. 

Operator Macau International Airport Co (CAM) has specifically excluded liquor, tobacco, perfumes and cosmetics from the tender.

CAM’s additional objectives include providing “innovative” retail offerings at competitive prices, and renovating the subconcession area at the airport.

The RFP formally opens today (17 January), with the deadline set for 12 noon local time on 20 March 2024. 

A pre-bid meeting and site visit will take place on 7 February. Interested parties should register with the operator before noon local time on 1 February.

Minimum qualifications include prior operation of boutique services in at least two international airports, and eligibility to apply for relevant trading licences in Macau.

Bids will be assessed against experience and qualifications, customer service, financials, marketing and operation plans, and design concepts and capital investment. The greatest weighting is towards financials.

In its RFP document, CAM said it is looking for “excellent proposals” that offer “outstanding customer service”.

“Bidders should be experienced, financially sound and able to create unique retail concepts.”

More information is available via CAM’s website.

Last month, CAM announced it is seeking two operators to run complex retail (retail/F&B) services under a five-year sub-concession contract.
