You already know that China matters.
You already know that China offers tremendous business opportunities.
The challenge lies in gaining an understanding of China that can be translated into actions.
That's what the HYSTA annual conference is all about.
With the theme "China and Technology's Impact on the Global Economy", the conference is designed to deliver an on-the-ground perspective of what's really happening on China.
This year's sessions will address areas ranging from China's domestic economy to Silicon Valley companies who have succeeded in China to Chinese brands morphing into global players. Equally important, we've recruited some of the best minds in the world, tapping speakers from both China and Silicon Valley.
The conference's value also come through the unofficial discussions that take place over the course the day. By bringing together a mix of executives, venture capitalists, academics, government officials, entrepreneurs and other ecosystem players, the opportunity is there to expand your China Rolodex.
In short, there's no better way to come up the China learning curve than by spending one day at the HYSTA conference.
One final point –
You'll find our seats are much more comfortable than flying 6,000 miles in a cramped coach seat on an airline (and our tickets are considerably cheaper too).
