All of us at Primasia would like to remind our international business partners that a major Chinese Holiday is coming, the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival. Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, which means for Western Calendars that the 2019 Mid-Autumn Festival will be held on Friday, 13 September, when the moon will be at its prime, shining brightest and at its fullest form. The festival was originally meant to honor your ancestors and deities; however, it’s also the perfect time for networking events which lead to magnificent business opportunities and relationships.
During the Mid-Autumn Festival families and communities traditionally gather together to celebrate the bountiful harvesting season– somewhat like the American Thanksgiving Day. Families and friends take part in the many Lantern Carnivals and other events around the city. The Lantern Carnivals has an incredible variety of colorful, bright shiny lanterns, and also feature also many cultural events and performances including Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance celebrations, song and dances, Kung Fu, acrobatics, craft demonstrations and the like. If you are in town during this holiday, be sure to check them out!
Of course, you must remember that this is an official holiday period, and all governmental sectors are closed as well as most privately owned businesses. This can create loads of opportunities to participate in networking events; eating mooncakes and drinking fizzy cocktails, while discussing the next business niche. Take a moment to buy a colleague a cup of coffee or tea and wish them a happy festival. (Mooncakes taste amazing with a cup of tea!)
