shanghai b2b conference
"Delegates from six continents join forces in China for a “Better. Stronger. Together.” themed conference hosted by ADMIRALTY Maritime Data Solutions."
“Winning multi-national hearts and minds face-to-face”
Organising a conference at the same time as the world’s largest maritime exhibition, Marintec China, is no mean feat. Venues are fully booked years in advance, visa applications are slow, transport and AV suppliers are in high demand and stress levels are fraught.
Drawing on all our experience and with just six months planning, we pulled off an incredibly successful, paperless conference, a first for the client. We were forced to improvise to get around social media challenges in China to ensure our mobile app, featuring live polling and questions throughout the event, flourished in a challenging environment.
The Jumeirah Himalayas five-star hotel was selected for the event due to its proximity to the exhibition centre. Set up time was restricted to just five hours, so we opted for a 10m LED wall, supplemented by side projection screens, to relay the conference.
The stunning Lost Heaven on the Bund was chosen to host the gala dinner and reception and no international conference would be complete without some stunning Chinese operatic performers.
And did we mention we managed three technical seminars at the Marintec China exhibition too? It was a definite case of ‘plan your work and work your plan.'
