The Swedish Chamber of Commerce together with the Swedish Club in Shanghai celebrated their annual crayfish party on September 15th, 2012. Held at Paulaner Bräuhaus (Expo), more than 240 happy guests attended.
The evening started with a welcoming drink and an array of appetizers indoors, to continue with crayfish and a buffet outdoors. Despite having had its fair share of rain scares the weather kept perfect for the duration of the event, with few clouds and a refreshing breeze.
Like any traditional Swedish Crayfish party the mood was on top, as the crowd enjoyed the crayfish and sung the well-known Swedish snaps songs.
Host for the evening was Martin Stenberg, whom together with the evening’s toastmaster, Andreas Lundstedt, kept the audience entertained throughout the night. Andreas Lundstedt is the frontrunner for the popular Swedish disco ensemble Alcazar was flown in from Sweden especially for this evening.
After the crayfish, the guests were invited back indoors for dessert as well as a performance by Andreas Lundstedt. Singing a few of his and Alcazar’s most well-known hits was a welcome finale for the evening.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China would also like to thank their gold sponsors, without their support the event would not have been able to come to fulfillment. The gold sponsors are: Ericsson, Grand Hyatt, PSU, SAS, SEB, Swedbank, the Swedish Trade Council and Vinge.
