With the participation of over 140 expats living in Busan and around the area including Geoje etc.,The 3rd Busan Winter Holiday Ball took place at the Park Hyatt Busan Ballroom on December 6th evening, 2014.
Considering the fact that this is one of two annual events organised by a group of expats who recognised the need for foreigners in Busan to meet in a glamorous yet informal environment, have fun and network, the response was phenomenal.
Before the dinner, guests enjoyed a free reception during which one participant Mr. Jakob Dahl Seidenfaden from Norway company Statoil said that he is very excited to mingle with friends & acquaintances in a glamorous atmosphere before Christmas season is in full swing and another guest Mr. Kasra Parkravan, site manager at Bureau Veritas said that it is good to meet colleage expats in a relaxing environment to commemorate Christmas season.
Ms. Maggie Langer sparked interest, saying in Busan Haps Magazine in advance that Dear Winter Holiday Ball Peeps, only 12 more days until the biggest expat event of 2014 in Busan! As many are concerned about dress code, do not worry: dress on what makes you feel the best.

Following a well-prepared full course dinner by chefs of the Park Hyatt Busan, there were a lucky draw time and a dance time followed.
