Poggenpohl and Gaggenau took pride in the sponsorship for Longines Hong Kong Masters 2013.
The Longines Hong Kong Masters 2013, the Asian leg of the Grand Slam (Paris, Hong Kong, New York) is the first international show jumping event and the only five-star accredited competition on the equestrian calendar taking place in Asia, where 25 best riders worldwide compete for a prize of US$1,000,000. Joining hands with only best of the best, including Longines, Gucci, EADS Airbus, Ferrari, Leica, Veuve Clicquot, and many more, the Longines Hong Kong Masters has become a superstar in the sports and social scene of 2013!
Gaggenau set up four pop-up kitchens, over 20 metres long in total, at the Prestige Village on site and invited four highly acclaimed restaurants, Institut Paul Bocuse (by ‘Chef of the Century’ Mr. Paul Bocuse), Tim Ho Wan, the Dim-Sum Specialist, a Michelin one star restaurant, Loyal Dining Restaurant and Shanghai Lo Restaurant for an utmost authentic gourmet experience. Guests were indulged in a palate delight while enjoying the magnificent equestrian competitions and shows.
Prix Poggenpohl, one of the competitions of the unrivaled grand slam, started with an equestrian programme specially developed for Poggenpohl. After enjoying a hearty breakfast by Yves Mattagne, a Two-Star Michelin chef from Belgium with their parents, around 40 children were taken for some incomparable experience, where they learnt about the sport, talked to elite riders and diligent grooms and walked on the first class equestrian competition arena.
The programme was wrapped up with Prix Poggenpohl, a seamless collaboration of the Longines Hong Kong Masters and Poggenpohl, both epitomizing perfect technical excellence and utmost attention to details. The collision created some exciting chemistry and pushed the event to a new high.
