Being an inspired work of architectural design by Neri & Hu, the contemporary event space at The Sukhothai Shanghai, scheduled to open in March 2018, is crafted for exquisite social and corporate events, conferences and exhibitions of all scales. The Grand Shanghai Ballroom, along with six multi-purpose function rooms, occupy a spacious area of 450 square-metre and is accessible from the main driveway and grand terrazzo staircase.
Capturing the spirit of modern simplicity, the Grand Shanghai Ballroom features an interior with oak wood panels and natural silk fabric in muted green, giving it a stylish yet inviting ambience. It can be divided into three sections and is able to comfortably host banquets of up to 250 guests and approximately 350 guests for cocktail receptions.
Equipped with the latest technology, the Grand Shanghai Ballroom is complete with multiple Tannoy 8-inch dual ceiling speakers and subwoofers for full-range quality acoustics, three high-definition LCD projectors and three five-metre widescreen monitors to create immersive visual effect. There is also a state-of-the-art lighting array for the perfect ambience, all operated with its intelligent iPad master control at the touch of a button. The six flexible function rooms are even equipped with 65-inch or 85-inch widescreen display.
On arrival, guests can socialise over refreshments or cocktails at ‘The Meeting Point’ before the event or between sessions. Communal break area ‘The Pantry’ is a new concept made available to all event delegates as a place of relaxation, rejuvenation and refreshment. As our culinary experts take centre stage at the live cooking station, The Pantry also serves gourmet coffee and teas, freshly-squeezed fruit juices and soft drinks, along with a sumptuous selection of savoury canapes and sweet treats.
Located in the shopping and tourist hotspot of West Nanjing Road and Shimen Yi Road, The Sukhothai Shanghai is a contemporary design hotel that forms an integral part of the HKRI Taikoo Hui mixed-use complex, which also includes Grade-A office towers and a premium shopping mall.
