China by Four Seasons introduces 4th edition of ‘Meetings with More’
Beyond brand recognition and renowned world-class service, China by Four Seasons understands what it takes to deliver a successful event. Whether a hotel buy-out or an exclusive high-level Board of Directors meeting, expect efficient execution of logistics with a personalised touch as Four Seasons meetings and events experts coordinate every detail, from the point of reservation to bespoke event planning, departure arrangements and the final billings.
Now into its fourth year, nine Four Seasons hotels in Greater China offer the Meetings with More package*, a program that has been designed to provide more savings, more flexibility, and more customisation to meet the needs of each group.
Valid from April 1, 2019 until March 31, 2020, the Meetings with More package at Four Seasons offers nine benefits, of which meeting organisers may select any three, at any of the nine Four Seasons hotels in China. Planners can choose from credit towards their next meeting, 10 percent savings on meeting package published rates, room upgrades, breakfast inclusions, preferential rates on food and beverage, spa, and transportation, among other benefits.
With hotels and an urban resort located in major China gateway cities, Four Seasons offers access to rich culture, historic landmarks, creative cuisine options, exciting teambuilding activities and more. Cities are also located in close proximity within a quick 30 to 60-minute travel by train, land or ferry, making it easy to organise dynamic combination pre or post meeting trips, be it from Shanghai to Hangzhou, Beijing to Tianjin, or between the four hotels in the Greater Bay Area.
Outside of the meeting room, Four Seasons puts forward some of the most exciting attractions, UNESCO World Heritage sites and entertainment that China has to offer. Guests can enjoy on-site Michelin-starred dining in Hong Kong, Macao and Guangzhou, swim with the skyscrapers at the 41st floor pool in Shanghai at Pudong where the James Bond movie Skyfall was filmed, and rejuvenate with therapeutic treatments at some of the finest spas in Asia. From wandering through the UNESCO City of Design in Shenzhen, to the historic corridors of Shanghai at Puxi, magnificent UNESCO World Heritage sites in Beijing, exploring the beautiful mountains and temples of Hangzhou, or a night out at the Italian-style street in Tianjin, each destination offers unique opportunities for recreation and group activities.
Greater Bay Area
The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is set to become a global technology and innovation centre, with the city cluster focused on fostering more cultural and creative high technology industry initiatives on the mainland.
Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou, the city’s towering landmark at more than 437 metres (1,433 feet) high, invites guests to savour a gourmet dinner enriched with a fascinating visual show of the four seasons, a sensory “garden” with lights, sounds and scents. The entire function room will transform into a live garden setting, with customised lighting imagery that will accompany each course to enhance the dining experience. An immersive visual experience that gives guests an unforgettable journey through the four seasons.
At the Pearl of the Orient, the Well Feeling Meeting Package at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong aims to improve business efficiency by bringing mental and physical balance to the meeting room. Healthy food, mini guided group meditations with the Hotel’s Spa experts, and even a stretching corner with fitness staff, are all designed to spark productivity, tap into creative energy, and leave colleagues feeling good all day long.

A combination of historical attractions and first-rate infrastructure brilliantly positions cities in this region for various international summits, seminars, meetings and forums.
