The St. Andrew's Ball is a major event on Taipei's annual social calendar that honours Scotland's patron saint, and attracts a large gathering of people (approximately 350-400 attendees) every year from the local and international community including business and government leaders. It has earned a reputation as the best Ball in Taiwan, and arguably one of the best in the region.
The event provides a great opportunity for organisations to promote their brand prior to and during the event. In addition, by taking a table at the event it provides a unique way for organisations to host potential clients or reward staff for good work.
The event celebrates Scottish culture, specifically Scottish food (with a traditional Haggis ceremony), whisky & wine, and music & dance – with a Scottish piper and a dance band flown in especially for the event. Free dance classes are held in the lead up to the Ball and are in themselves social events that provide a build-up to the big night.
