GUANGZHOU, CHINA--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2013) - The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou today announced details of its "Early Bird" packages for guests planning to visit to the world-famous Canton Fair this October.

The Fair, formally known as the China Import and Export Fair, is held twice-annually and attracts droves of sourcing professionals from around the world.

Hotel guests making reservations for the October Fair period before June 30 will enjoy exclusive 30 percent savings on daily best available room rates -- and guests making their reservations before May 4 will enjoy an additional Food & Beverage credit of RMB 400.

Finally, all The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou guests will enjoy shuttle bus service to the Pazhou Exhibition Center every 15 minutes and use of the luxury Guangzhou hotel's high-tech Fitness Center and swimming pool in addition to complimentary high-speed internet access.

This offer is valid during Canton Fair dates only and is subject to hotel availability. RMB 400 Food & Beverage credit is per stay and only applicable for reservations of two or more nights. Reservations are required in advance. The hotel reserves the right of final interpretation of these terms and conditions.
