Last night, Business Traveller Asia-Pacific hosted a party to celebrate its revamp at Armani / Privé in Chater House, Central, Hong Kong.
In attendance were 182 professionals from the hotel, aviation and related industries, who mingled, sipped on free-flow drinks and enjoyed delectable canapés from 6pm onwards.
Business Traveller Asia-Pacific’s new look – which is being adopted across all the worldwide editions – received much positive feedback. The new design is cleaner, intending to make navigation and reading of the unashamedly content-heavy material easier. Blippar technology has also been integrated, and the free app animates the pages on your smartphone or tablet. This allows for videos and interactive elements to be combined with the traditional media of print, and enriches the readers experience.
Business Traveller considers the event a huge success, and big congratulations go out to Alexander Haeusler, group director of project at Regal Hotels International and general manager at Regal Hongkong Hotel, who won the prize of a three-course dinner for two with a bottle of champagne included.
