UCL President and Provost Professor Michael Arthur addressed "Thank you as always to the Beijing Club for putting on such a spectacular event and coming out in such numbers. You manage to take our breath away every year. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest, most creative and most active of all UCL's worldwide alumni associations. It's always a huge pleasure to be here with you and a great deal of fun."

This year, UCL Dean of School of Engineering Professor Nigel Titchener-Hooker shared their present work. He said at the end of the speech that both London and Beijing face issues, such as air pollution and overcrowding, which can have a real impact on the experience of living in those cities. So a big focus at UCL East will be on promoting positive and sustainable urbanization. UCL East will collaborate with partners around the world including Beijing.

During the Gala, UCL alumni and North China Electric Power University Dance Club and Blue Power Choir performed 'Edelweiss' and 'Meeting is a Melody.'

Jasmine Dulcimer Ensemble from Central Academy of Music gave the performance of 'Tritsch Tratsch Polka Schnell', 'Silk Road Jasmine','May Friendship Last' and 'Viva La Vida'. There was saxophone performance of 'HorseRacing', 'When you are 64' and 'When Spring Breeze Comes'.
