AsiaWorld-Summit is already proving that it has the world-class facilities and expertise to host large-scale conferences and banquets.  Today, the venue welcomes some 1,200 delegates from Japan who are attending the DIANA Co.

“AsiaWorld-Summit was the perfect choice for our event,” remarked Mr Masaki Homma, President, DIANA Co.

Looking ahead, AsiaWorld-Summit will be welcoming many more high-profile events in 2009.  These include the return of the world’s biggest and most important gathering of the global freight forwarding industry, Sino-International Freight Forwarders Conference, which comprises a conference, exhibition, extensive F&B services and a full gala dinner for thousands of delegates from around the world.  Other noteworthy events include the Global Mayors Forum in September 2009.
