Following the recent success of the Digital Mission to Washington, Chinwag has started planning a new double Digital Mission trip to both Singapore and Hong Kong.
With the growth of digital industries including mobile, social networks, gaming and online businesses this is a great opportunity for UK based companies to explore the benefits of expanding to Asia.
The first Digital Mission Discussion:Asia meeting is taking place at Pinsent Masons LLP on Thursday 29th September, it’s a chance to find out more about the region and discuss the plans for the trip.
Here are some further details on the Digital Mission from Chinwag:
So why the Digital Mission to Asia? Well quite simply because you told us this was an important market. Back in May we asked you where your global opportunities lie in regards to international growth and Asia, more specifically Singapore and Hong Kong were in the top 6 markets for expansion within the next year, and we can see why.
Singapore, the “digital port” of Asia is one of the most efficient and fast talking counties in the world. You can reach more then 3 billion people in under 5 hours flying time and have full access to the pro business environment which in hand attracts sizable foreign investment and business entrepreneurs.
Event planning is underway and the agenda is falling nicely into place but before we get too much confirmed, we want your input.
What are your objectives for the mission? Who do you want to meet? What types of business, brands and sectors are important for your business?
The trip will be taking place this Winter during the last week in November and will likely consist of a 3 days in Singapore and 2 days in Hong Kong, with the option to stay longer.
