    Yesterday at an event in Beijing, Universal did a presentation that unfortunately just repeated what we already know about the project, reaffirming (https://www.themeparx.com/universal-studios-beijing/?p=14064#post14064) that construction will be completed around October 2020 and then the grand opening will be in Spring 2021. The only thing that is slightly new is the Universal-branded hotel at the entrance has been officially named "The Universal Studios Grand Hotel" (环球影城大酒店). Because Universal didn't release any new construction photos or concept art, posts on social media and news articles about the event mainly used construction photos from themeparX, stock photos of the existing Universal theme parks, previously leaked concept art, and the official but outdated overview concept art. Despite the lack of new images from Universal we have some recent images for you:

    First is some onsite work taking place on rockwork for the Kung Fu Panda area. It seems that the work is being done outside before being moved to and assembled in the indoor Kung Fu Panda area



    Next is the usual photos of the park from a few days ago





    Here's a couple photos from the event

    Brand new photos this time from the south side of the construction site - the large building covered by blue scrim is the Universal-branded hotel at the entrance to the theme park, the building covered by the light green scrim is the NUO Resort Hotel and wavy structure towards the front of a lot of these photos is the transit station:

    Local news video showing the parking garage being built:



    https://v.qq.com/x/page/q0867agh90m.html

    At the end of the video it shows the theme park but I think that footage is from a previous news report.

    Also, you can listen to Tom Mehrmann, president and general manager of Universal Beijing Resort, be interviewed on a Singapore radio station here: https://omny.fm/shows/money-fm-893/read-with-michelle-martin-tom-mehrmann-taming-the

    Most of the interview is about his time at Ocean Park Hong Kong but Universal Beijing is mentioned towards the beginning and end.
