Tmall World (天猫海外) Chinese New Year Campaign 2018
To celebrate the most important festival on the Chinese calendar, Tmall World will be hosting a ‘Tmall World Chinese New Year Dinner’ event on 26th January 2018 at Setia City Convention Centre, Shah Alam. This mega reunion style Chinese New Year Dinner will be featuring internationally renowned artist Michael Wong, a.k.a. Guang Liang (光良), and will be attended by approximately 1,000 Malaysian consumers as well as children from 5 charity homes in Klang Valley.
