Beijing-Bound Exec Needs "Activity" for Business Group
May 23, 2014 5:40 AM Subscribe
I'm attempting to plan a trip for an executive I'm supporting in a temp role, and if all goes well, I may get to keep the job. The guy is going to Beijing in the fall and will spend one night entertaining a group of Chinese executives. I need to plan the entertainment. Where do I send them?

I've never been to Beijing, and it seems none of my friends have either, so I turn to you, well-traveled and global Mefites.
The American business dude in question will be expecting to host a group of Chinese execs for one night in Beijing, taking them to a group activity and then dinner. Finding a place to host a business dinner isn't really a problem for me since I love researching that sort of thing (though any recs would be welcome), but I've never been an Executive Assistant or been to China before, so I don't know a.) What's appropriate for typical C-level business guys to do together? b.) What's an appropriate activity keeping in mind all Chinese cultural parameters?, and c.) What's doing in Beijing?
I don't want to schedule anything that could possible make everyone bored or be totally strange from a Chinese perspective since that would reflect poorly on my boss, so any push in the right direction would be wildly appreciated.
