It was a night filled with tuxedos and evening gowns, bearded ladies and acrobats. The AmCham South China annual 2019 Spring Ball, one of the most glamourous annual events in Guangzhou, was held on May 18th at Guangzhou Garden Hotel.
Over 400 people attended the Ball, and 17 countries were represented. Consuls General and representatives from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Ecuador, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Mexico, Nepal, Netherland, Nigeria, Thailand, Uruguay all mingled with each other.
AmCham South China President Dr. Harley Seyedin, decked out as the sequined ring leader, finally rang the bell as he was followed by the performers and other attendees into the main ball room.
This year a massive stage with wall-to-wall video screens made sure no one had a bad seat at their table. These screens provided a light show throughout the evening beginning with the grand entrance as the band played at the attendees and danced on the stage.
Attendees were delighted by a delicious eight-course dinner before the dancing began in full force. The house band truly delivered a music variety that kept the whole place hopping. One attendee said, “I especially enjoyed the dancing and live music. [The Ball] was also a good opportunity to make some friends and accumulate new relationships.”
