This year’s lecture, Lunch with the Qianlong Emperor was a great success with all seats sold out several months before the October 6, 2018 date. There were attendees from Singapore, China, New York, Louisiana, Los Angeles, Pacific Grove and San Francisco. The Fairmont Hotel staff provided the California Room with state of the art audio visual equipment.
The Laurel Court restaurant setting was elegant and the food and service by the Hotel staff prompt and attentive. Following lunch, the group returned to the meeting room to enjoy a special treat, the showing of a beautiful film by the National Palace Museum’s collection of The Emperor Qianlong’s collection of Treasure Boxes. I appreciate that the attendee’s made a big effort in terms of travel time and cost to attend my event. Thank you to all! My staff and I enjoyed it as much as you did! Safe journey home!
