Guangzhou, China – December 20th, 2017 - The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou is unveiling its 1,200-square-meter brand-new, pillarless and state-of-the-art Grand Ballroom in early January 2017. This exciting RMB100-million worth project took over 24 months to complete and is definitely the new social icon of Zhujiang New Town.
Collectively, The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou features more than 3,300 square meters of banquet and event space, making it a paradise for event planners to hold events of all sizes including board meetings, product launches, corporate-wide and social celebrations and other high-profile activities.
“The grandeur and elegance of the new Grand Ballroom will enhance the positioning of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou as the premier choice of hotel and venue for prestigious conferences and social events in Zhujiang New Town,” said Matthias Vogt, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou. “It was designed to provide the most memorable experiences and unforgettable moments to guests, for whatever occasion it may be.”
Designed by Hong Kong AB Concept International Ltd., the new Grand Ballroom with a nine-meter-high ceiling is inspired by the concept of an exquisite Chinese ivory ball, and exudes an elegant rhythm of contemporary glamour, boldness and refinement; reflecting qualities through merging architectural technique and interior design sense.
The overall impression for the new Grand Ballroom is centered on a space that speaks for itself upon guests’ entering, through numerous layers of sophisticated crafting and detail. The lobby and pre-function area introduce a warm welcome and foreword ambience through a combination of layered ivory colored setting with a touch of natural marble, and bronze-glazed details equipped with custom lighting, furniture and carpet.
A sensual touch of Rococo grace is also translated into the design, blending Eastern and Western styles into a well-appointed space that represents both contrasting cultures. The custom-designed patterned wall and ceiling are delicately embroidered with separate layers of details, featuring intricate fluted, floral patterns – contributing to the sense of exclusivity, understated luxury and symmetrical balance.
The new Grand Ballroom also offers a flexible layout and can be divided into three separate venues for smaller events. A separate VIP room is made available with close proximity to the Grand Ballroom, offering the most exquisite atmosphere as a holding area. Floor-to-ceiling windows fill the 635-square-meter foyer space with natural light, making it ideal for pre-function cocktails and wedding receptions. Three separate entrances with direct access from either through the main facility or from the public provide convenience and efficiency to guests attending any functions.
The facilities feature advanced, sophisticated audiovisual systems with electronic-controlled lighting systems, including ceiling-controlled LCD projectors, oversized remote-controlled electronic screens, a 80-square-meter High-definition LED screen, and remote-controlled track ceiling lighting systems to capture the appropriate mood.
The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou has a dedicated conference and banqueting team that ensures events held at the hotel are professionally organized and enjoyable, offering meeting planners a real time, one-stop communication method with the hotel for easy planning and successful execution of events.
