For the fourth year in a row the Royal Norwegian Consulate General and Norwegian Business Association (NBA) co-organized the Annual Norwegian Seafood Dinner in Shanghai. This year the event was recently held at the Peninsula Shanghai on the Bund with even better selection of seafood, more plentiful program for the whole evening as well as bigger prizes to the lucky draws.
The annual Norwegian Seafood Dinner provides an excellent opportunity for the Norwegian companies in Shanghai and surrounding regions to invite their staff, business partners and clients, Norwegians as well as Chinese, to enjoy an exclusive Norwegian seafood dinner, culture and music. It enables the Norwegian business community in Shanghai to improve their bonds, as well as a platform for business opportunities.
320 guests were invited to the current most successful annual Norwegian Seafood Dinner and treated to a spectacular variety of Norwegian seafood prepared by Executive Chef Terrence Crandall at The Peninsula Hotel and the renowned Norwegian Chef Øyvind Næsheim, as a guest chef, together with a team of professionals from The Peninsula.
Mr. Bjørn Blokhus, Consul General at the Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai, and Mr. Geir Sviggum, Chairman of the Norwegian Business Association (NBA) in Shanghai, jointly gave a welcome speech at the opening ceremony of the event.
It is the 4th consecutive year that the Norwegian Seafood Dinner in Shanghai took place. Therefore, it is more than just a grand event, it has become a great tradition!
