The beautiful city of Hangzhou, with its classic Chinese landscape that has drawn many poets to write beautiful stories and poems about it, is a perfect getaway and travel destination. Tourism is a significant industry in this city, which not only gathers an international crowd but also a top spot for domestic tourists as well.
The Hua Chen International Hotel in Hangzhou is a four-star hotel that is convenient and strongly oriented to business individuals. Starting on November 8 to November 30, 2008, the hotel will be hosting an Alaska Seafood Festival in the form of a buffet. The hotel ensured that the promotion was well represented as they even placed the promotion flyers in certain guest rooms. The turnout for the promotion has been very strong as the chef told ASMI China that the smoked Alaska halibut has been one of the most popular items in the buffet. In addition, over 150 customers have been served per day since this activity has started. As a first time cooperation with the ASMI China office, the chef has been very thankful for the support from ASMI China in order to make this activity very successful. Furthermore, he thinks that the activity has really helped increase the sale’s volume for dining at the hotel. They did however comment that a greater amount of Alaska seafood species used during the promotion could make the activity more interesting.
