This year's Chinese New Year was in the beginning of February, hence so many annual dinner parties were held in January. We will introduce about annual dinner parties this time.
▼ Company annual dinners in Hong Kong would usually take place before Chinese New Year
First of all, the annual dinner banquets in Hong Kong are long. The reception usually starts at around 6:00 – 7:00PM, but the dinner will last until around 11:00PM. Basically, the dinner gathering will be held for the entire evening.
▼ The dinner parties would always be crowded with couple hundreds of guests
▼ Mr. Okazaki from Kansai Paint also attended the dinner banquets
The celebration would go as big as 200-300 guests per annual dinner party, and almost every day in January would have such parties being featured. Apparently, Kansai Paint was the only invitee with Japanese representatives joining these year-end banquets. We do believe this is our way to appreciate healthy business relationships with our clients, and to wish each other even greater success in the new lunar year.
