Ping An Finance Center, Shenzhen

This special, invite-only reception was held on the evening of April 8, the first evening of the 2019 Innovation Conference. The event allowed VIP attendees to experience the topmost floors of the iconic Ping An Finance Center, a 599-meter skyscraper that anchors the city’s Futian District and holds the titles of the World’s Tallest Office Building and the World’s Fourth Tallest Building – two designations that had been confirmed earlier that day at an official signboard inauguration. After guests enjoyed spectacular views, even stepping into a glass enclosure for an immersive experience at the tower’s pinnacle, they were welcomed by the host and sponsors of the event, Ping An Financial Center Construction & Development, as well as by CTBUH Chairman Steve Watts, Partner, alinea.
