You already know that China matters.

You already know that China offers tremendous business opportunities.
The challenge lies in gaining an understanding of China that can be translated into actions.
That’s what the HYSTA annual conference is all about.
With the theme “China’s Impact on the Global Economy”, the conference is designed to deliver an on-the-ground perspective of what’s really happening in China.
This year’s sessions will address areas ranging from China’s domestic economy to Silicon Valley companies who have succeeded in China to Chinese brands morphing into global players. Equally important, we’ve recruited some of the best minds in the world, tapping speakers from both China and Silicon Valley.
The conference’s value also come through the informal discussions that take place over the course the day. By bringing together a mix of executives, venture capitalists, academics, government officials, entrepreneurs and other ecosystem players, the opportunity is there to expand your China Rolodex.
In short, there’s no better way to come up the China learning curve than by spending one day at the HYSTA conference.

Networking & Mentoring Roundtables 

For the first time, HYSTA annual conference launches Mentoring & Networking Roundtables.

Roundtable I aims to provide a unique and personal mentoring experience to our selected mentees. In addition to listening to conference speeches, our mentees also have the opportunity to sit at the same table with our mentors.  Our mentors will share their personal stories and valuable career insights. They will also field questions from the mentees.  This is a rare opportunity to learn from the masters up close!

Roundtable II runs from 4pm to 4:50pm during HYSTA Annual Conference, which brings together human resource professionals, managers, university/college career services staff, and association representatives within the fast growing industry areas. It’s a great opportunity to discuss high interest issues regarding business partnership, recruitment and career development.
