The 2013 edition of Canton Plage – the French National Day, organized thanks to the intense cooperation between the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in China (CCIFC) and the China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel, with the support of the General Consulate of France in Canton, was held on Sunday, July 14th, from 07:00pm to 11.30pm.

French and Chinese communities were gathered around the splendid pool and garden of the five-star hotel to celebrate this historical and revolutionary day while discovering French culture.




Many activities were programmed during this tropical night to entertain the 650 guests, who were offered a swim suit from Oxylane in the gift-bags made by FFG. The pool, surrounded by sand and water toys, let people enjoy and relax with friends, partners and colleagues by relieving a bit of their childhood.

A very complete open-bar with Grands Chais de France French wines, Grand Marnier cocktails, Pernod-Ricard spirits, San Miguel beers and Perrier water was ensured for this dynamic and exciting party. The BBQ, composed of French, Western and Asian food, went down a storm with cheeses and ice creams provided by Maison Délice.




Moreover, the jazzy band “Grooving Souls” and the rocking "Eclectics" played two fantastic live concerts and DJ Harold was in charge of the house music so that everyone could dance. For those who forgot their moves, a French Cancan show performed by the Macam dancers, helped everyone to really understand the French party spirit and traditions.

Sportsmen could enjoy the laser game and table soccer, kindly set up by Galactica, while ladies could benefit from make-up services and advice from the Jolie Fille beauty experts.

Finally, as previous years, the luckiest ones won numerous and amazing gifts offered by the generous supports of Canton Plage during the draw such as Crowne Plaza, Dr. Lu, Four Points, Pullman, Sheraton and Sofitel.




Canton Plage 2013 was also the place for many companies willing to expand their activities. By the garden of the hotel, many enterprises, international firms and SMEs, had the opportunity to represent their industry and exchange efficiently. Thirty corporate tables were reserved to enable invitees to spend the evening in a perfect atmosphere for business interactions and connections.

This exceptional annual event was made possible thanks to all the CCIFC very loyal and supportive partners like Citroën, Extruflex, Carrefour, Fuda Cancer Hospital, Hilton Baiyun, Mon Stage En Chine, Davco, Sogal, AGS Four Winds, EDF, Element Fresh, Jardin d’Olive restaurant, The School House and SLA Video Factory.

Once again, Canton heard the French national anthem, "La Marseillaise", and saw the blue, white and red French flag fluttering in the air.

Vive la France !
