Cross Border Summit

Our flagship conference, the Cross Border Summit is an annual gathering (in April) for top cross border business owners and executives. Taking place in Shenzhen, on the border of Hong Kong and China – its a full day conference of speakers, panels, workshops, and quality networking.


“Firstly, awesome day and really glad I made the trip for it. You put a lot of effort into it and clearly worked your butt off to make it a success. Great job and thank you for your efforts. On the speaker front I think for FloShip the only person who should have spoken was the founder Eric. He knew the business best and could answer everyone’s questions. Lunch was excellent and a great choice because it was very social and people could choose their own food. The speakers at JD were excellent especially Felix and Kim From Park Lu. They knew their subjects and engaged really well with us. The networking opportunity I found very valuable and hope to keep in touch with several of the participants. I know you also got frustrated, but the logistics needs some work. We wasted a lot of time going to the wrong location and waiting for the pick up home. I feel bad that you had to stay in HK. In my opinion you have a lot to worry about on the day so you didn’t need that stress. Get someone to coordinate all of that for you so you don’t have to worry. Anyway, thanks again for an awesome event and to your team for their help, I got a lot out of it and would happily recommend any of your events to others.”

“About 3 years ago, we had a B2C project launching mainly aiming at exporting Shenzhen made consumer electronics to overseas and our team used Mike’s training service. It was really helpful. The affiliate program part clarified our long term question about how it works so we could optimize our channel plan effectively. Also, the tools for managing social media marketing are so practical. I’m fully confident Mike’s training can help many exporters and importers who are aiming to develop their markets in or out of China.

“It was great to attend the Cross Border Summit. Personally for me it was the perfect bridge between manufacturing and selling products in and to China. Most valuable for me was to get solutions from specialist and keynote speakers directly one on one.”
