Event management in Shanghai: Top Hotels

China is fast becoming the business world’s go-to destination for hosting meetings, incentives, conferences and events. China’s major cities offer businesses a wealth of quality event venues and accommodation, whilst delegates can enjoy China’s rich culture, history and countless visitor attractions. Event management in Shanghai, for example, is increasingly sought after thanks to the city’s delightful riverside location, cosmopolitan atmosphere and abundant facilities and attractions. Shanghai also boasts any quality and luxurious hotels which make perfect venues for hosting prestigious large-scale business events.

Here, leading China event company Orientis DMC reveals its top three ideal hotels in which to host large events in Shanghai.

Banyan Tree Shanghai on The Bund

The thoroughly modern and stylish Banyan Tree, located on the edge of the financial district and offering stunning city views, makes Shanghai event management easy. 130 sumptuously furnished rooms and suites are equipped with every amenity the modern business delegate might need, whilst the hotel’s elegantly decorated Summit Room provides 180 square metres of space and can cater for meetings, conferences and events of every type and size. Facilities including audio-visual equipment, Wi-Fi and overhead projectors are available, and for recreation the Banyan Tree Shanghai offers MICE delegates a swimming pool, spa, cocktail lounge and restaurant.

Mandarin Oriental Shanghai Hotel

This new, five-star hotel is sure to become a favourite of every event company in China. Situated at the vibrant heart of the city, the Mandarin Oriental 362 luxurious rooms & suites decorated in contemporary style mean that accommodation of the highest standard can be easily provided for meeting and conference delegates. It is the variety of exceptional event spaces that really stand the Mandarin Oriental Hotel apart from the crowd, however: the aptly-named Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 500 guests, whilst the smaller Oriental Ballroom can still host 250. Then there are five additional indoor function rooms, three separate boardrooms, an outdoor events space and a fully-equipped business centre. When not attending their MICE event, delegates can enjoy the hotel’s outstanding restaurants, spa and wellness centre, indoor swimming pool and exclusive Club Lounge.

The Peninsula Shanghai Hotel

Classical opulence meets twenty-first century facilities at the breath-taking Peninsula Hotel. A dream destination for anyone tasked with event management in Shanghai, the Peninsula (opened in 2009) is the first new building to have opened on the city’s iconic Bund waterfront area in seventy years. 235 spacious guest rooms and suites have been lavishly decorated and furnished in the Art Deco style yet feature every possible modern amenity. The Peninsula Shanghai Hotel’s spectacular event and meeting rooms are equally beautiful and well-equipped and between them can be configured to accommodate just about any size of MICE event, whether for five attendees or five hundred, in style. The hotel’s choice of fine-dining restaurants, stylish bars, an indoor swimming pool, spa and fitness centre ensures that delegates can relax when business is concluded.

Each of these Shanghai hotels represents a superb and versatile venue in which international companies can host impressive and successful MICE events of every kind.
