More than 150 guests gathered on Saturday to celebrate the yearly Young Professionals Swedish midsummerfest. Among the guests were not only Swedes, but also other Scandinavians and Chinese.
The event was arranged by Swedish Young Professionals and was held at hotel Radisson Blu in central Beijing. The guests were offered a typical Swedish midsummer-buffet, including snaps. They danced around the “midsummer-stang” and sang snaps songs until late at night.
Chairman Eskil Hallström was very satisfied with the evening and look forward to next year’s celebration. –We had more guests than we expected and people didn’t leave until late. That’s always a good sign, he said.
