Prestige Fairs Return in Time for Christmas

By Promotions 14 November 2017
With the year coming to an end so quickly, it's hard to believe that it's already time for Christmas shopping. Luckily for us, Prestige Fairs are back and better than ever, so get ready to discover new Hong Kong brands, catch up with old friends, and stock up on gifts at the Conrad over the following weeks. Is there really a better way to rekindle your Christmas spirit? We think not.

Gift and Lifestyle Fair

When people say Christmas is the most exciting time of the year, they aren't wrong. Apart from the cosy sweaters, delicious gingerbread biscuits, and breezy Hong Kong weather, there's nothing more stressful than Christmas shopping. So, instead of waiting for a perfectly wrapped gift to magically appear on your doorstep, head over to the Gift and Lifestyle Fair at the Conrad on November 15. We promise you it will make Christmas shopping a whole lot easier. Ditch your festive angst and encounter 150 vendors showcasing clothing, jewelry, children’s toys, Hong Kong themed gifts, and much, much more. After a long day of exploring, enjoy a special 15% shoppers' discount in the Conrad's Garden Cafe for lunch and dinner, also relevant for the Afternoon Tea Set in the Lobby Lounge. See you there!
