Networking! We were out and about at the “China Life Science Investment: The Best of Times” event last night spreading the word about our new CHIME products on offer.
We heard from Greg Scott, Founder, ChinaBio Group, Chairman – BioPacific Investors giving insights into the investment driving innovation and growth in China’s healthcare sector and what to expect going forwards. Did you know that China has one of the fastest-growing healthcare markets in the world and the main illnesses currently fall into three areas: Oncology, Medical Devices and Mental Illness? Mingling afterwards with some of our local pharmaceutical healthcare professionals was a good way to understand more.
We’d love to hear from you so what are you waiting for…get in touch by email or by phone and we look forward to talking with you soon. Or better still we may see you at the next British Chamber of Commerce event on 25th May.
Our team here at Concise New York is extraordinarily busy supporting dozens of Spring meetings for our treasured clients. This month alone, we’ve got teams onsite from Boston to Bogota, from New York to New Orleans. Whether they’re for audiences of 20 or 1,200, many of these summits and executive level conferences come with a high pressure environment. The expression “all-hands-on-deck” couldn’t be more appropriate.
Why does this make us happy and all smiles around the office? Doesn’t the stress of live events wear us down?
We do understand the pressure event managers face delivering for speakers, sponsors and attendees. We feel the heat too. Preparing custom apps and thousands of iPads and for our clients - so they look good and so their events are successful - involves its own set of challenges.
At one event in Miami our team was issued a unique challenge: delight a room of 200 very high net worth investors, keeping them engaged and focused throughout the forum. How did it go?
Post-event our client received many a “Job well done!” by her VIP guests. We couldn’t be happier. Concise team members use a positive "can do" attitude to address challenges head-on with confidence and resolve.
Delivering for high-profile business people really is challenging, and we find this inspiring and always rewarding. Yes, we’re busy this Spring. How are your events going?
