Meetings and conferences become more enjoyable at Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen as the hotel introduces a series of innovatively themed coffee breaks to perk up the rudimentary coffee break.
A wide selection of themed coffee breaks is available, ranging from traditional wellbeing to modern sports, from local specialties to classic movies. Elements of the selected themes are incorporated into the decoration, menu, music selection, staff uniforms and entertainment of the coffee break. With such attention to detail, event organisers can choose from coffee breaks that take them to the street side cafes of the Fragrant Harbour during the Hong Kong Café coffee break or feel like they are walking into the movie set of a Hollywood movie in the Mr. Bean coffee break.
In addition to innovative themes, the hotel also introduces innovative venues. One example is the Healthy Break theme held in the Health Club's gymnasium, which looks out to the outdoor garden. Guests can enjoy energising smoothies blended to order. Varieties include Banana with Spirulina and Blueberry. Other healthy snacks include Banana and Bran Muffins, Black Currant Granola Bars and Freshly Baked Whole Wheat Croissants. To further carry the theme through, barbells and sports equipment are used as decorative elements on the food display and the service team is dressed in sports attire.
“We are dedicated to enhancing guests’ experience and provide a lively break that guests can look forward to during meetings,” said Rose Wu, director of Events Management of Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen. “The most popular themes including New York Deli, Chicken and Egg Story, Herb Garden, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Prison Break.”
Themed coffee breaks are available from RMB 158 per person for a minimum of 20 persons and require one week advance booking. Special requests for customised themes can be accommodated. Prices are subject to a 15% service charge. For bookings or enquiries, please contact the events management department at (86 755) 8828 4088 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
