Raising the profile of technology companies in Asia

Introducing, establishing, maintaining and growing a tech company's name, brand and products in the vastness that is the China market is not only possible, but certainly worth the effort in the long term. Careful and skillful tailoring of a number of marketing tools is, fundamentally what it takes to be successful in China, aligned with a pragmatic approach to avoiding the obstacles that can rear up for the unprepared.

Good event for the electronics industry, good attendance, exhibitors satisfaction, good organisation, good location.
