As we embark on the 21st century, Shanghai, the economic engine of China, is posed to challenge the established global economic order with its newfound supremacy. As the city where East meets West, Shanghai has developed as a meeting metropolis you can’t do without. If there were hundreds of hotels and venues before, the range of space available for events and meetings has grown rapidly ever since. But what’s new in Shanghai? Let’s find out.
Shanghai Disney Resort
Boasting several “first-evers”, Shanghai Disney Resort officially opened in June, with, for example, the largest Disney castle ever constructed, the Enchanted Storybook Castle. In the Tomorrowland you can also hop onto a glowing two-wheeled cycle for a TRON Lightcycle Power Run, which is one of the fastest coasters ever created for a Disney park. Garden of the Twelve Friends has made its debut too, with Chinese Zodiac symbols reimagined as Disney characters.
