KidZania Sourcing LP, the subsidiary company that will design and source new KidZania products and merchandise for both retail and redemption sales, opened its office in Hong Kong today. Given that the Chinese calendar is very particular about what day to launch the business, our team chosed this date to make the official opening. For this same reason the company was registered on June 10th, because this too is very auspicious date for good business and good Feng Shui.
During the opening which started at 18:30 local time, our team opened the office to our vendors, local partners, providers, family and friends to bring in good luck. At 19:00 exactly the ribbon was cut by Mr. Cove Overley.
Traditional roasted suckling pig was served after all the members of the KidZania Sourcing team assisted in splitting the head of the pig and then serving it to friends and colleagues to grant prosperity in every department.
