June 14, 2013 JW Marriott Los Angeles LA LIVE
I am going to be attending the Think Asia, Think Hong
Kong conference, June 11 in New York and I suggest that you check out the New York
and Los Angeles events for yourself.
Hong Kong and Asia are so important to the U.S. play industries that
every opportunity to meet and get to know Asian businesspeople and Americans
who also do business with Asia is an opportunity not to be missed.
The conference is being put on by the Hong Kong Trade Development Counsil and I am told that there will be over 100 business leaders
flying in from Hong Kong for the events.
What is most notable for those in toy and play consumer products,
however, is the presence of William Fung, Group Chairman of Li & Fung who
will be one of the speakers. Li &
Fung is one of, if not the most important suppliers of production, sourcing and delivery
of toys. That is enough to get me there.
I hope to see you there.
