Think Disney and the mind comes alive with memories of cartoons, films, and timeless tunes. At Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, Disney characters and worlds are brought to life - not just to entertain, but also to inspire creativity and innovation among delegates.
The resort's multiple venues cater to groups of any size. In addition to a 1,500-sqm Conference Center with three ballrooms that open into 16 meeting areas, there are also landscaped gardens and poolside venues available for outdoor parties and receptions. An in-house support team is always on hand to provide audio-visual setup and technical troubleshooting - a key consideration when holding an event at any unconventional venue.
Over 12 dining establishments offer a range of settings for a private dinner, while park buyouts are available for group sizes upwards of 1,000 guests. In addition to private park access, a theme park buyout can be made more special by arranging an entrance or farewell procession, or by booking one of the park's theatres to host an awards ceremony or enjoy a Disney stage show.
All in the Details
When it comes to themed events, Hong Kong Disneyland goes all the way to get everyone in character. During the Marvel-themed Celebration of Sales Excellence 2016 event, delegates were trained and inducted as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents to gain "special clearance" for the banquet dinner - one that involved encounters with Captain America, Iron Man, and Spiderman, as well as Hydra agents. In addition to the decor and photo ops, customisations included Marvel character desserts and souvenirs.
Integrating Work and Play
Groups staying at any of the resort's three hotels - Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, and Disney's Hollywood Hotel - can participate in recreational activities such as the Finding Hidden Mickey hunt, morning Tai Chi, and towel animal-folding workshop. To ease things for planners, the resort also offers Team Engagement Activities to address different team-building goals.
