Take a China Business Trip!
Visit the Shenzhen Electronics Market and get exclusive content and connections
October 26-27, 2017
Looking to Experience China manufacturing?
In the electronics and hardware capital of the world: Shenzhen, China?
Then take a China trip with experts who have been here for decades!
The China trip is a full, hands-on experience like no other. Join a group of other business owners and entrepreneurs who are interested in learning about the biggest electronics market in the world – Hua Qiang Bei. Visit factories to understand how the electronics manufacturing process is done, and then take a guided tour of the electronics market with local experts.
On top of the factory tour and electronics market guided tour, we will have a second day all about matching you up with suppliers and service providers to get you on the fast track for your product development experience. We call it the Cross border matchmaker (CBM) and it is a full-on intense day of suppliers and service providers pitching their product and service offering alongside a expo of booths for you to ask questions with and engage with.
Our Global From Asia China trip is custom made based on the requests and feedback of our readers and listeners. We offer you:
China Visa Help
We know how stressful and unknown it is to figure out what kind of visa to get and how it works. Once you confirm your ticket to the China trip, our client services team will consult with you on which visa is right for your passport and scenario.
Round Trip Transportation
From Hong Kong SAR into and out of Shenzhen, China – we made it as simple as possible to get you in and out of Mainland China. Meet us at a designated time and place and you will be whisked away to the heart of the electronics capital of the world – Shenzhen, China. Our team will keep you on track to ensure you see what you need to see and meet *.
Overnight Hotel Accommodation
Don’t stress about finding the right hotel or location. We have you covered. Each ticket will come with 1 shared room accommodation with another guest. Have a friend or business colleague you are traveling with? No problem – let’s match you up with people you know. If you’d like your own single room, additional charges apply and speak to your sales representative at Global From Asia for more details.
Electronics Factory & Supply Chain Tours
The focus is on electronics manufacturing, and we will find suitable suppliers within a decent proximity to the electronics market so that you can get a good idea of how a factory works, as well as tips and tricks on how to manage your order and supply chain once you make the move.
Guided Tour Of Hua Qiang Bei Electronics Market
A top destination for anyone coming to Shenzhen, China – the electronics market. Check Mike’s video blog Hua Qiang Bei overview to get some inside looks. We will break up the trip into groups to view different sections of the massive market, and you will have a local expert tour guide show you around the area. This is where you can have your fun grabbing little gadgets and trinkets for your friends back home!
We will take care of your breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the trip. Experience real Chinese food, that is quality! Want to experience true Chinese alcohol (Baijiu) – don’t worry – that isn’t included and we don’t recommend it. If you do want to experience the Chinese liquor, that is a separate charge you cover on your own (buyer beware, lol!)
On the second day, we will have our CBM (Cross-Border Matchmaker) with hundreds of suppliers and attendees ready to meet you! This will be an intense day of pitches from service providers and factories, as well as plenty of time to network and connect with your fellow China trip attendees as well as the suppliers and local expats in the area.
Connect to Business Community
Our favorite part and often the most valuable offering to our attendees is the community you will connect with. Make life long business relationships with those attending the China trip with you, as well as the Chinese factory suppliers and local expats living in Shenzhen, China!
So what do you say? Full package put together by experts who live and work in Shenzhen, China?
Ya, this is the ultimate China trip experience – and we want to have you join us!
* Don’t need help coming to/from China? If you want to cross into Shenzhen, China and into Hong Kong SAR on your own, no problem! We are cross-border experts, and if you’d like to cross the border on your own – we wrote the definitive guide to crossing the China border here. Our tickets offer non-transportation options.
