ISA HK/China has promised some of you that we shall do our best to bring our Station Members & ISA Arboriculture into China. We have been waiting for the right opportunity. Now the time has come.
IPM China 2008 (http://www.ipm-china.com.cn/) , which is one of the largest Flower Show in China if not the largest, will be held in Chencun, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, China from Dec 1 to Dec 3,2008. According to the organizer, they will have over 200 exhibitors from all around China & overseas countries to put up display, & all major Landscape Bureaus, designers, contractors, nurserymen, academics & industry personnel from across China will come to visit the show. They expect more than 50,000 landscape industry personnel to attend this year.
This time, ISA HK/China together with TCHK & ETF, will jointly bid for a display booth in IPM 2008. It will cost RMB 5,000.00 for a 3m x 3m indoor booth for 3 days at the best spot. Sharing the cost between three parties, each will pay RMB 1666.66 for the exhibition. Exchange rate now is US 1 = RMB 6.85. The venue is 2 hours away by bus from HK & is located in the middle of several thousand local nurseries. We consider this a fabulous bargain for our purpose to meet all our brothers & sisters in a bunch to sell ISA arboriculture, tree climbing & ETF trees. If we get just one offer, it will be worth all the investment we pay for.
Like the SGF 2008, ISA HK/China is happy to bring along anyone interested whether participating in the exhibition, or just come along to meet our Chinese counterparts. If any of our overseas friends would like to join in the exhibition, we shall be happy to provide logistics & support. ISA HK/China will also try to nudge the organizers to give us a seminar venue to present ISA Arboriculture, at no extra cost. TCHK will also look for opportunity to demonstrate tree climbing which is something never seen publicly in any China Flower Show before. We are going to ignite our brothers & sisters with international arboriculture this time.
ISA HK/China will pay for the IPM participation fees within two weeks from today. If anyone is interested to join in, please hurry & kindly let us know soonest.
ISA HK/China is ready to put up the best show for our fellow countrymen this December.
