The Baidu Summer Party is an annual summer party of Baidu. It is held in the Beijing Baidu Campus in August every year with the participation of more than 10,000 Baidu employees onsite. At the party, Li Yanhong, founder of Baidu, always personally presents the “”Baidu’s Best”” prize to award Baidu employees who have made outstanding contributions to the company. Fruit juice, cupcakes, potato chips, popcorn, ice cream, sausages and other summer snacks are snacks you may see at the Baidu Summer Party. Baidu employees could also participate into various individual and teamwork games to win prizes. Instrumental music groups are invited to perform rock music, and female groups and street dancing clubs perform to entertain the audience. It’s a party full of handsome boys and beautiful girls, and a great celebratory event for Baidu staff.
During the Baidu Summer Party held on August 8 this year, Li Yanhong (Robin), CEO of Baidu, also known as the “”best-looking representative in internet companies”” as selected by the majority of internet users, presented five “”Baidu best”” awards. Five teams which made breakthrough technical achievements this year won the prize, and each team obtained a huge bonus of one million US dollars. To encourage technical innovation, at every Baidu Summer Party since 2011, Li Yanhong would elect the teams with the most outstanding achievements amongst already pre-chosen excellent technical teams to award them with the honor of “”Baidu best””, and offer each team the huge bonus of one million US dollars.”
