Peter and I have just arrived at the magnificent Sunrise Kempinski hotel in Beijing.

Newly opened, the Kempinski is clearly positioning itself as one of Beijing’s top proper ties. You only have to look at the external architecture to get an idea of the vision and intent of Kempinski here in China.

We’re here to a site visit to check out the venue and experience some of the activities that we’re planning to offer our attendees for ConnectionsLuxury Asia.

It’s late so I’m going to keep things short. Suffice to say that our agenda is absolutely PACKED! Tomorrow in between business meetings with the Kempinski team, we’ve got a Chinese cooking session and a host of traditional Chinese massages to experience.

The Connections office back in London is still very much open with Evangeline holding the fort, so don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you’d like to discuss participation at one of our upcoming Connections Luxury events.

Standby for more updates from Beijing shortly!
