What To Expect At The Hong Kong Tatler Ball 2018
An exclusive guest list
Over 350 guests have already RSVP'ed for this year's Hong Kong Tatler Ball, many of whom are from the esteemed Tatler 500 list. If you can't make it, don't worry—we'll be covering it live all night long on social media (@hongkongtatler).
This year's theme is 'Science. Space. The Future.' so be sure to dress the part. Besides the cosmic, other-worldly decor, we'll also have a very special guest attending this year with major tech ties.
Live feed from the red carpet
From 7pm onwards, we'll be reporting live from the Hong Kong Tatler Ball red carpet as our fashion director, Justine Lee, chats with guests as they arrive.
Be sure to tune in on Facebook (@hongkongtatler) on the night, and watch last year's live feed and our best-dressed men and women for some serious style inspiration.

Interactive video booth
What's better than a photo booth? A video booth, surely. Open during the cocktail reception, don't enter the ballroom without having your limited edition video made—it's definitely going to be Instagram-worthy.
Futuristic food and drink
Prepare to feast like never before at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball. This year's menu offers an innovative new twist—plant-based dining—to represent the future of food. Don't worry, normal protein options will still be available but we're told more than half the guest list has already opted to go plant-based.

In terms of drinks, The Macallan will be flowing throughout the night, so rest assured that all glasses will be topped up throughout the evening.
Glittering awards ceremony
This year, we'll be handing out awards in four categories: Most Promising Young Lady, Most Stylish Woman, Diamond and Global Unity—a first for Hong Kong Tatler. Be sure to keep an eye on @hongkongtatler to find out who the awardees are and to hear what they have to say in their acceptance speeches.

As usual, we've invited some of Asia's top performers to kick off the after-party at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball. Taking the stage right after dinner and the awards ceremony, prepare to get on your feet and hit the dance floor.
Goodies to take home
At the end of the night, guests will receive a Hong Kong Tatler Ball goodie bag filled with gifts from our sponsors, including Chopard, The Macallan, FANCL and The Global Group. Don't forget to pick up your copy Hong Kong Tatler's September issue (featuring our cover star, Dee Poon) on your way out.
