Five wow-factor meeting venues in China

China is increasingly looking like the “meeting host with the most”

A dazzling array of meeting venues in China can make events or MICE activities unforgettable. And they may soon be unobtainable due to rapidly increasing demand from meeting and incentive planners. The lively 600-seat Galleon Restaurant and Bar (pictured) close to the InterContinental Shenzhen is a double-sized replica of Christopher Columbus’ Santa Monica. Another venue, called 1933 Shanghai, about 10km from the Shanghai World Expo, was originally built as a pre-war abattoir and still has the original cattle path and air bridges. Now there are exhibition spaces, offices to rent, meeting rooms, cafes and restaurants.
Inspirational nature is the emphasis at Jin Sha by the Four Seasons, which offers 16-seat stand-alone pavilions around scenic ponds and gardens as well as a 38-seat al fresco area. In Beijing, the sumptuous 1200 sq m Reignwood Theatre, close to the Fairmont Hotel, has ballet and opera performances and a number of 30-seat VIP boxes. In Guangzhou, Redtory Art and Living is a converted canning centre, now a stylish and arty location for meetings, exhibitions and dining.
