“We are honored to partner with the China International Culture Association again this year to showcase the country’s cultural arts performances during our fifth annual Chinese New Year celebration in Beverly Hills,” said Julie Wagner, Chief Executive Officer, BHCVB. “Last year’s sold-out event was a great success, so having opportunity to bring back China to Beverly Hills is an honor."

Offerings include special Chinese services and amenities such as Chinese tea, slippers upon arrival, in-room Chinese breakfast dining options, almond and sesame cookies, as well as Chinese newspapers delivered to rooms daily.

BHCVB’s annual Chinese New Year celebrations reinforce Beverly Hills as an ideal travel destination for Chinese visitors. The yearly festivities have  quickly become a highly anticipated event, both in China and in the greater Southern California region. This event marks the second consecutive year CICA has exclusively partnered with BHCVB to bring Chinese entertainment to Southern California for the city’s Chinese New Year celebration.
