As promised, the Longines Masters of Hong Kong is so much more than Show Jumping !
Yves Mattagne is Chef Patron of one of the best restaurants in Belgium, the 2 Michelin star Sea Grill in the centre of Brussels.

He replicates his much-lauded gourmet cuisine over 3-days at the Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2016, presenting top notch delicacies and freshest seafood from caviar and lobster to oysters, crab, foie gras and truffle on four different menus.
Champagne, fine Bordeaux wines and souvenir photos are also included in the VIP packages.
“For three days a year, the VIP Masters Club by 2 Michelin-starred Chef Yves Mattagne is the most exclusive and prestigious club in Hong Kong, and indeed all of Asia,” said Fabien Grobon, Managing Director of event founders EEM.
“No better example of the event’s ‘glamour factor’ was the celebrity turnout In Los Angeles, on the first-leg of the intercontinental series on the road to Hong Kong, with Hollywood out in force in a star-studded VIP gallery including director Steven Spielberg, Bill Gates, Bo Derek, rock and roll legend Bruce Springsteen, James Bond girl Denise Richards, Big Bang Theory super star Kaley Cuoco, action star Jean Claude Van Damme and many more.
“At the second leg In Paris, we had European royalty, dignitaries and famous actors.
“And the final leg in Hong Kong is always a social hub for the region’s elite, as well as top CEOs and tycoons from all over the world. There really is no more impressive place to renew or make top connections.”
