Su Fulun is the chairman of Quanzhou Chamber of Commerce in Beijing.
Please tell us some basic information about the function of the Quanzhou Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber has more than 3,000 elite members in Xiamen, with most of them are business elites in Quanzhou — famous entrepreneurs. The chamber is committed to providing a sound cooperation platform for members.
Why does the chamber prefer Xiaman as a MICE destination?
There are about 60 to 70 members that are from the garment trade. Due to the limited capacity of transport and hotels in Quanzhou, these enterprises will choose Xiamen to hold their product exhibitions and trade shows, and the chamber will choose a suitable venue for them. Most members of the chamber hold their meetings in Xiamen, as there is an abundance of star-rated hotels that meet their various demands. Sometimes there are meetings of more than 3,000 people, and Xiamen has the capacity in flights, hotels, and convention and exhibition facilities.
Which hotel's meeting products and services have impressed you the most? And why?
Le Meridien Xiamen has impressed me a lot. As befits a five-star hotel, the staff are well trained and very polite, which is why it ranks in first place in the chamber's list of recommended hotels. Featuring 850 square meters of meeting space, Le Meridien Xiamen has a pillarless grand ballroom with a ceiling height of 10 meters which is quite suitable for a fashion show. For corporate meetings, the hotel will prepare key cards in advance according to the list of meeting participants, present a short tea break after guests arrive at the hotel, and guide guests to their rooms after a quick registration. The hotel also has a female-only floor that provides women's magazines and supplies in the rooms. The hotel has also done a very good job of organizing dinners after the meetings.
