Elegance, with harbour views to match, is on offer to meeting planners who can choose from the oriental elegance of the Connaught Room ballroom or the stylish East and West Rooms at the Mandarin Oriental.

Event planners can choose from venue options on the 23rd floor to the flexibility of the suite of modern meeting rooms on the second floor - all of which boast state-of-the-art facilities with world-class service. 'Our legendary reputation is founded on our attention to detail, service excellence and outstanding culinary creativity. With its unrivalled location and a team of event planners [who are] experts at group and meeting events, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is the perfect choice for conferences and meetings,' says Joanne Cheng, director of sales for catering and conference services.

Mandarin Oriental's experienced team of event managers is on hand to assist with every need from creative themes to ice-breaking sessions. All meeting rooms have natural light, some with harbour views, and each is furnished to the highest standards.

Completely renovated in 2008, the striking Connaught Room on the first floor has been the ballroom of choice for Hong Kong's social elite for almost half a century. Comprising six separate rooms that can be combined for a capacity of 300 guests, the Connaught Room offers built-in technology in a classically-designed ballroom with oriental accents.
