Following the recent official launch of SO! DALIAN, the first in a series of new events under the SO! RENDEZVOUS umbrella offered by China Rendez-Vous, founder Delphine Lignieres and her team are thrilled to announce that they have partnered with The Polo Life LLC to host the first ever Beach Polo World Cup in China. The World Cup will bring a unique touch of refinement and glamour to China’s eagerly awaited yacht show. SO! DALIAN is drawing attention of a huge level of interest and plenty of top industry players have already confirmed their attendance and reserved key exhibition spaces.
From July 3rd to July 6th, 2014, SO! DALIAN will bring another level of sophistication to the shores of Dalian, in the prosperous province of Liaoning. Over the years, Dalian has become known as one of China’s most dynamic coastal cities, not only attracting elites from the region, but also Beijing, Inner Mongolia and eastern Russia.
Teaming up with world-renowned experts from The Polo Life, the originators of the highly successful Miami Beach Polo tournament, China Rendez-Vous is bringing this world-class event to the shores of Dalian, adding an atmosphere of competition and sporting lifestyle to the show. The World Cup will allow brands and guests to mingle and enjoy the refinement and legacy of the “Sport of Kings” played on sand. “I am very excited to bring our experience and passion about polo to China. We are already selecting the best players from the circuit so the first tournament at SO! DALIAN should for sure be one not to be missed,“ explains Bruce Orosz, President of The Polo Life.
Also on the books is the annual Golf Tournament in partnership with USC-888 and the St Andrews Golf Festival and supported by TaylorMade. “Today more than ever, brands need to reconnect with their clients and this process demands for a more personal and emotional approach than before. This is what the Beach Polo World Cup and Golf will offer them,” explains Delphine Lignieres, CEO of China Rendez-Vous.
Attracting the top brands from an array of industries, SO! DALIAN is proud to announce the participation of Airbus Corporate Jets, Luerssen, Sanlorenzo, Monaco Tourism Board, Lucien Barriere, Azimut- Benetti Group, Beneteau Group, Jeanneau and many more. With a full slate of top international brands expected to attend, the team of China Rendez-Vous is working relentlessly to deliver an event of the highest quality that brands have come to expect from the company.
This is only the beginning in a series of unveilings about the event program. Later announcements will reveal more about the social calendar of the show and the highly anticipated content of the ART IN DALIAN exhibition.
