Here is my crazy outline for October 2016. Let’s rock!
October Holiday (Mid Autumn Festival) (Flight to Shenyang Wed, Oct 5) – The month will start off with the second biggest holiday in China. We plan to go to hometown in Northeast China (Dong Bei) Shenyang. To see family and celebrate Wendy’s grandmother’s big birthday.
DCBKK – Tues Oct 11 to Monday Oct 17. Will be in Bangkok, Thailand for the Dynamite Circle big yearly conference, DCBKK. Already signed up for a bunch of break out sessions, and ready to talk business and do some deals with members. We have all been preparing for this one for a while.
Global Sources Smart China Sourcing Summit – Monday Oct 17 – Wednesday Oct 19. This is the second event for the Smart China sourcing summit. The Enter China team and I have been invited to host a panel discussing how to run your sourcing operations remotely (without having to be in China).
Global From Asia Business Trip – Friday Oct 21. An action packed one day business trip (aka Cross border trip) – this time heading FROM Shenzhen into Hong Kong. We will visit JingDong international and other companies doing Chinese e-commerce. Wendy is doing a great job heading this up.
Enter China Canton Fair Event – Saturday Oct 22 – Sunday Oct 23. In Guangzhou China. Will be a bit tiring after a full day Friday event in Hong Kong – but will head up on Saturday morning (or maybe a late night trip on Friday) to Guangzhou. Saturday is a speaker series and round tables about product development and sourcing. Sunday is walk the floor at the Canton Fair.
Chris Davey’s FBA meetup on Tuesday Oct 25 – I can’t wait to make it to this networking event. Also in Guangzhou China.
Dcx Hong Kong – I’ll be a co-organizer at Dynamite Circle’s first Dcx in Hong Kong on Friday Oct 28 and Saturday Oct 29.
There is probably other events and networking things I am missing here – but this is enough right! Is this too much? It will be a ton of great blog content and video content.
Hope to catch you at some of these events!
