18 March 2015 – Kerry Hotel, Pudong, Shanghai recently announced its partnership with 2015 Kia World Extreme Games, the prestigious, global action sports event that will be held in Shanghai from 25 April to 3 May 2015.
In 2013, the once organised Kia X Games Asia became Kia World Extreme Games and has become one of Shanghai’s top 12 international events. This year, it will bring together more than 150 of the best action sport athletes from 25 countries and regions competing in BMX freestyle, skateboarding and speed climbing. Gold medallists Trey Wood and Jimmy Wilkins will be among the elite athletes returning to Shanghai. For the first time in event history, Kia World Extreme Games will welcome an elite group of skateboard street pros, including world champion Chris Cole, Tom Asta and Jack Curtin.
Previously held at Jiangwan Stadium, this year’s competitions will expand to multiple venues to accommodate the detailed build and design of world-class courses. BMX and vert skateboarding will be held downtown at the iconic Oriental Pearl Tower.
As the official partner to this mega event, Kerry Hotel, Pudong, Shanghai will offer catering services and accommodation to VIPs. Having hosted different kinds of external catering events, the hotel has a professional culinary team and a fully dedicated service team to ensure the attendees not only have a feast for the taste buds, but also a wonderful dining experience of being served nicely.
“Kerry Hotel is honoured to be the official partner of the Kia World Extreme Games. It truly resonates strongly with our brand image and what Kerry aims to achieve – vibrant, unpretentious and flexible by providing exciting and inspiring experiences that go beyond expectations for all our guests. We are looking forward to the fantastic event this year,” said Mr Gregor Wateler, general manager of Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai.
