Shangri-la Banquet Hall is Markham’s premier wedding banquet hall and dim sum restaurant. But this beautiful event venue had a less than glamorous problem common to many businesses. The owners were too busy planning client weddings and business events, and serving their lunchtime dim sum customers to work on their marketing and web design. The facility and restaurant needed an engaging website that would motivate more new customer inquiries and event bookings.

The original website was not mobile responsive for 2015 Google standards. The photo gallery: so important to new brides when choosing a banquet hall for their wedding, contained photos which were small and poorly optimized. As well, the website lacked features such as a blog, which would allow the business to share news, updates, testimonials and special offers.


napkin marketing stepped in with a three pronged solution to help Shangri-la banquet hall improve its banquet hall and Markham restaurant web design. We created a new website from the ground up, crafted SEO friendly copy to tell the Shangri-la story, and shot brand new photos and video of the facility, giving it a fresh new look.

We also created a strong social media presence for the business, with new Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube channels, including social media writing and community management.

The new Shangri-la Banquet hall website features:

  • SEO optimized web copy
  • Optimized photo gallery
  • Video tour
  • Blog
  • Customer Inquiry forms
  • Google Analytics and Webmaster tools integration
  • WordPress CMS
  • Responsive design
  • Social Media presence and integration with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and Pinterest.


The new website has given Shangri-la a revitalized presence in the community, and a refreshed design important to the fashion-conscious wedding market. Even more significant: the site is now well positioned on Google and generating a strong and steady stream of client inquiries and event bookings.
