 Challenging Times For Association Meetings?

 In 2015 the General Office of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council issued the  program of "un-linking the chamber of commerce and the administrative organ of the trade  association from the government". This is in order to achieve self autonomy of these trade  associations and trade unions from the executive authorities; so as to  promote the  development of trade associations. 

 What does this shift mean to Trade Associations as they begin to reshape themselves to stay  relevant? As more global confederations and federations have set up in China and more  national associations go global for its market development and professional exchange. What  will be the challenges and considerations in terms of policies, directions, funding, and  talent  sourcing? Listen to  our Panel of experts as they share their experience and learn  from peers  in this open discussion.

 Making The Most Out Of Your Participation At Trade Shows

 A trade show is an opportunity to generate new leads from a targeted audience, nurture  existing client relationships and introduce your new products and services. Developing  business potential from trade shows is a medium to long term strategy. It is not a three to  four day effort, but often a year-long effort.

 Second Wave Cities, An Upcoming Target Destination?

 More and more Asia Pacific carriers have begun flying and more on focusing on second  and third tier cities. We are seeing a number of infrastructural improvements in the likes  of gleaming airports and state of the art convention centers around the region. Aside  from the  prospect of reduced travel cost, is this sufficient proposition to woo  Association  meetings  away from capital cities? Join this session to discover what will it  take to be on the Association list.
