Senior leaders at the Asia Pacific Business Conference share pre-Chinese New Year cheer in the community

Senior executives from Carlson Rezidor global and Asia Pacific, and a team from Radisson Blu Plaza Chongqing, delivered cheer to elderly residents of the Huang Ge Du Community this morning by presenting them with Chinese New Year ‘hongbao’ (red packets). They also joined the senior citizens for a pre-New Year luncheon, after making festive decorations bearing auspicious Chinese characters. Huang Ge Du Community is situated close to Radisson Blu Plaza Chongqing, which is the venue of the 2015 Carlson Rezidor Asia Pacific Business Conference.

Thorsten Kirschke, president, Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said, “We are thankful to have been welcomed into our host community. It was a joy to interact with and make a positive impact on Chongqing’s residents. I hope that we have been able to add a little to the festivities and holiday spirit.”
