ITU 2006 has kicked off!

The worlds biggest telecom conference (ITU) has landed in Hong Kong. Daily reports can be found at TelecomAsia's website

Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to visit the show. The majority is held at the new asia expo exhibition center which is close to the airport of Hong Kong.

The official opening took place over the weekend and state leaders from China and Hong Kong did use the opportunity to promote Hong Kong as a good location to settle down your company. With Western understanding and on the doorstep to the mainland, it should be worth the consideration. In case you are considering, please talk to the people of InvestHong Kong....need contacts? Let me know!


LAst saturday I returned from a trip to Bangkok I noticed it was seriously busy on the airport. Many conference participants were arriving, so the organizers put up welcoming booths, and provided support staff for assistance. Then on my belt there was a sports team returning to Hong Kong, and I believe some organization of handicapped people was returning as well.

All together a crazy hustle and bustle! ON Tuesday there is a vc conference for new media going on followed by a reception\networking session with ITU....so lets see what comes out of it.
