Event Details

Is your organization interested in expanding to Asia? Are you active in Hong Kong or China and on the hunt for additional business opportunities? Looking to stay ahead of the curve with your China strategy?

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover from the United Kingdom to the People’s Republic of China. Over the last two decades, Hong Kong and Canada have strengthened both cultural and economic ties; Hong Kong is host to Canada’s largest expat community and ranks as Canada’s 8th principal export market.

Looking ahead at the next 20 years, the HKCBA 2017 National Conference will:

  • Delve into past, present and future developments in Hong Kong-Canada relations
  • Craft a dialogue on current trends in Hong Kong-Canada and China-Canada economic developments
  • Share insights from Canadian companies on how they took advantage of the Hong Kong gateway to China, Asia and the rest of the world
  • Support budding Canadian entrepreneurs in getting their product to market through our National Investment Pitch Competition

Last year’s conference played host to over 220 attendees invested in doing business between Canada and Asia, welcomed speakers from across Canada, North America and Hong Kong as well as supported propelling young entrepreneurs’ business ideas linking Canada to Hong Kong.

HKCBA is pleased to offer out of town participants preferential pricing with the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Booking details can be found here
