Guangzhou is one of the manufacturing and technology centers of China and has an ever increasing variety of visiting business visitors and the partnership as Guangzhou Municipal Tourism Administration and China Southern Airlines to enhance growth through tourism.

Once you clear security and ride the elevators up to the 70th floor then the event all started with the Red Carpet…
