The event featured four main entertaining areas: Horizon Plaza, Horizon Wonderland, the Yacht Experience, and the Waterfront Party, the festivities provided food court, amusement rides, and games to a live concert to end the night.
The opening ceremony took place at the Horizon Plaza, where guests counted down to zero with Horizon Group CEO John Lu. When zero was reached, the yachts in the marina blew their horns into the sky. Guests were then guided by an aerobic trainer to undertake the group effort of forming the number 30, and the image was recorded and projected onto the main stage screen by a drone.
Strolling to the Horizon Wonderland, guests were treated to an amusement park experience, which featured 13 attractions including a merry-go-round, kid robots, a surfing machine. Additionally, a specialised pool allowed parents and children to experience water sports including kayaking and SUP.
At Horizon City Marina, employees’ families and friends were offered the experience of touring five luxury yachts – the RP110, FD85, E62, E56 and E56XO – and getting a feel for the yachting lifestyle.
As evening approached, music flowed from the Waterfront Party. The lights went out and the screen played Horizon’s 30th anniversary video, which documents the company’s journey and history over the past three decades. After thanking all the employees for their dedication, Horizon CEO John Lu, the chairman, James Cheng, and the managers raised their glasses and asked all the guests to share in a toast to Horizon.
The evening swiftly moved into concert events, where artists and bands, including the popular Taiwanese band Wu-Bai & China Blue, took turns rocking the night. Many guests enjoyed the music from on board a yacht, while others took to the grass to dance.
