EMG hosts annual EMG Asiacom conference, celebrates 10 years of success in China
Bergen op Zoom, November 26, 2014 - EMG, the leading international B2B and industrial communication specialist celebrated its 10 year anniversary at the Grand Millenium hotel in Shanghai, China. The celebrations followed the annual EMG Asiacom partner and client conference, first launched in 2013, which brought together keynote speakers and delegates from clients and the media under the theme of 'Value Based Communications in a Rapidly Changing Market'.
Speaking to the audience at the event, John Gallagher, International Development Director at EMG said. “We first opened our doors for business in September 2004 with just two people on the ground here in Shanghai. Over the past decade we have built a team of over 25 local communicators, added an office in Beijing and established EMG as the leading B2B and industrial communications specialist in China. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished here.”
The 2014 EMG Asiacom conference included guest keynote speakers Phil Allen, one of the chemical industry’s foremost experts on value based marketing; Xu Wei, a pioneer in QR Code platforms in China; and Dennis Duan, former editor of China Plastics and Rubber Journal and key industry opinion leader and online blogger.
Helen Han, General Manager of EMG China commented at the event: “We are absolutely delighted with our event today. Over 40 guests and speakers have participated in a thoughtful and lively debate on how we need to be more effective and more value-focused in our communications in this ever changing landscape here in China and across Asia. The feedback from all has been fantastic, and we look forward to next year’s event.”
