The 5th Beijing International Film Festival was unveiled at Beijing Yanqi Lake International Convention & Exhibition Center (BYCC) on the evening of April 16, 2015, during which numerous film crews, well-known persons in the movie circle and guests from home and abroad attended the international-level audio-visual feast.
After Beijing Jingyan Real Estate Co Ltd and North Star International Convention & Exhibition Co Ltd signed the BYCC Commission Management Contract in August 2014, a management team from China National Convention Center (CNCC), led by Ren Yu, director of CNCC’s Service and Operation Department, is responsible for the operation and management of BYCC projects. BYCC project, the first commission management project in Beijing, is the first expansion of North-Star convention and exhibition brand in Beijing. Since August 2014, the BYCC operation team has been sticking to the concept of building an international management team and attached great importance to the film festival. As a result, at the festival opening ceremony, BYCC’s grand venue, an integration of the traditional architectural style and the modern design concept, conquered all the guests with its unique charm. The operation team’s services, the exquisite environment layout full of amazing elements, the advanced and complete supporting facilities representing scientific and technological innovation, the professional and delicate functional areas in an international standard, and the warm and thoughtful reception allowing guests to feel at home, have won unanimous recognition from the film festival organization committee, leaders at various levels, film stars, guest and the audience.
Among BYCC’s various services, the catering service was the biggest highlight. BYCC’s operation team prepared a lot of molded caramel Tiantan Award statuette trophies coated with chocolate powder and used them to decorate the banquets for the first time. In addition, the meticulously prepared film star cocktail banquet, tea break, buffet and staff meal were either integrations of Chinese and Western-style foods or selections of local fresh foods from Huairou district of Beijing, satisfying different tastes of guests from all over the world.
At the star cocktail banquet, the elegant blue style together with featured venue architecture and moving light beams in the banquet area, the six tailor-made cocktail tables, which were placed like six mobile small islands for the convenience of food selection, and the movie elements such as old-style movie projector, films, clapperboard and classic movie poster, allowed the movie star guests to enjoy the delicious food in a world of movies.
On the day of the opening ceremony, Liu Huanbo, deputy general manager of Beijing North Star Group Industrial Group Co Ltd, came on the scene to visit and encourage the frontline BYCC staff. He hoped that BYCC staff could stick to their respective posts, demonstrate BYCC operation team’s core competitiveness, professional skills and excellent comprehensive quality and do their best to ensure the success of the opening/closing ceremonies and the award-granting ceremony on April 23 of the 5th Beijing International Film Festival.
