SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited (“SkyCity” or “SkyCity Group”) is New Zealand’s largest tourism, leisure and entertainment company and is dual listed on the New Zealand and Australian stock exchanges.
As one of three major publicly listed casino operators in Australasia, SkyCity operates integrated entertainment complexes in New Zealand (in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown) and in Adelaide, Australia - each featuring casino gaming facilities and premium restaurants and bars, which appeal to both domestic and international visitors alike.
SkyCity also offers award-winning hotel accommodation in Auckland at The Grand by SkyCity and SkyCity Hotel. SkyCity's hotel offering will shortly be complemented by Eos by SkyCity, a new 120-room luxury hotel due to open in Adelaide, South Australia, before the end of 2020 and Horizon Hotel, a new 300-room 5-star hotel now expected to be completed in Auckland during 2021 (having been impacted by the significant fire that broke out at the New Zealand International Convention Centre in October 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic).
In August 2019, SkyCity launched SkyCity Online Casino, an offshore online gaming business for New Zealanders, as a logical extension of its land-based casino operations. Whilst the business is still very much in its infancy, SkyCity is encouraged by SkyCity Online Casino's performance since launch. As at 31 August 2020, there were over 35,000 registered SkyCity Online Casino customers.
SkyCity employs over 3,800 staff across its operations in New Zealand and Australia across more than 180 job types, with around 2,500 staff based at its flagship property in Auckland.
Our refreshed Group medium term strategy has a clear focus on the creation of both sustainable shareholder returns and enhanced social and sustainability initiatives critical to the long term viability and success of SkyCity.
