Carlsberg’s Chinese New Year Dinner

[Event]

Chinese emperor, pretty girls, beauty queens and lots of beer!

I’ve attended quite a fair bit of Carlsberg Malaysia’s events in the past years. In fact the very first event that I attended as a member of the media was the Carlsberg Gold launch back in 2008 when I was with FHM Malaysia.

Carlsberg Malaysia has many brands under their portfolio such as Carlsberg (duh!), Kronenbourg 1664, Asahi Super Dry, Somersby cider, Hoegaarden, and the list goes on and on. Each of the brands has multiple events in a calendar year so I can always look forwards to attending two (2) or more events each month!

I was very happy to be invited along with Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers to Carlsberg’s Chinese New Year dinner on 20 February at the Hilton, KL Sentral. The dinner was an appreciation to key partners and media throughout 2012 and to share Carlsberg’s 2013 plans.

The dinner kicked off with the arrival of the ‘Chinese Emperor’ aka Carlsberg Malaysia’s Managing Director Soren Ravn. He proceeded to showcase his drumming skills before giving a welcome speech.
