DGFC Connects at Pool Party

The Dongguan French Connection (DGFC) hosted the Dongcheng International Hotel’s first private poolside party on Saturday, November 2, with an estimated 70 partygoers attending. The DGFC brought together French speakers and welcomed a mix of internationals, who not only reside in Dongguan but came from Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

“The point of DGFC is to connect with multiple horizons and to be an active hub for Donguaners from Israel, the U.S., Italy, South Africa, Brazil, Ukraine, Korea, the U.K. and others (places).” Vincent Breitel, DGFC admin, said.

“We designed this party to be relaxed yet give our guests a complete five-star hotel experience,” Ludovic Casteleyn, the hotel’s food and beverage director, said. The hotel opened their afternoon buffet for the event, offering a mix of finger foods and desserts.

The party later moved to the hotel’s outdoor pool on the fifth floor, with a panoramic view of downtown Dongcheng. Poolside drinks and music were provided, and the hotel’s Maple Leaf Japanese/Korean restaurant brought up sushi and pizza.

Like with every DGFC event, the wine was provided by the Edenbourg wine company.
