Dragon Fruit Events is Tanja and Petra. This dynamic duo met while in leading positions in the Shenzhen Asian Culture Society (SACS), where they created, organized and marketed event programs such as dining experiences, business lectures, cultural evenings, art exhibitions and social gatherings. They found each set of talents complementary, making for an amazingly fruitful partnership.
Each has expertise in different aspects of the hospitality industry, making them the perfect liaison between corporate clients and event staff. Now this dream team is available for your corporate event planning needs in Shenzhen and Hong Kong as well as other Asian cities.

Dragon Fruit Events also has resources to stage meetings in Hong Kong and other Asian cities.

Ein scheinbar alltaeglicher Dienst am Kunden wurde von Ihnen sehr professionell und zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit erledigt; dies ist in unseren Zeiten die Ausnahme; wir sind ja auch in der Dienstleistung tätig , und ich weiss wahrlich von was ich spreche. Nochmals danke für die problemlose Abwicklung und wenn sich die Singapore Airlines mal wieder nach München ‘verirren’ sollte, kommen wir gerne mit Ihnen wieder ins Geschäft.”
