Grand Hyatt Hong Kong Hosts Record-Breaking Events19/06/2012 Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
Hong Kong (20 June 2012)…The Vinexpo 2012 ended with great success in end of May achieving a record number of visitors and exhibitors over 15,000. Being the host hotel of this internationally recognised event, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong has also broken two of its own records. The first one was the hosting capacity of the Grand Ballroom within which during the Commanderie du Bontemps gala dinner 860 guests were served. The second record broken was the number of wine glasses used in a single event. At the Jurade de Saint-Emilion gala dinner, 6,600 wine glasses were used.
On 29 May the Commanderie du Bontemps gala event hosted 860 guests and a six-course Western dinner was served. A total of 72 tables were set in the Grand Ballroom, the foyer and the grand rooms. Guests were impressed by the cosy grand set up and were stunned with the impeccable service though space was tight for the service team.
On 28 May the Jurade de Saint-Emilion gala event hosted a five-course western dinner for 600 guests across 41 tables. Guests were served 11 different wines, with a total of 6,600 wine glasses used (plus another 600 Champagne flutes used during the cocktail). Guests were thrilled to experience perfect service throughout the evening.
Together with the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne gala dinner on 27 May, which hosted 340 guests and 13 different Champagens were presented, three evenings in a row – the three most prominent gala events of the Vinexpo – presented a crescendo of events with each gala dinner more breathtaking than the previous one.
The followings are few of the plenty of compliments the hotel received from guests of the three events:
“Once again, congratulations to you and your entire team for the outstanding event on Tuesday evening (29/5)! You have provided a stunning level of service for a record number of guests. The meal was delicious, the wine service impeccable. We are fully aware of the amount of work it represented and wanted to share with you our full admiration for this perfectly mastered event.”
