This is what our attendees say about the conference:
"The AVCJ China Forum is an influential event in the private equity and venture capital community in China, which brought together industry professionals and thought leaders to discuss the hottest opportunities and explore strategies to tap the ever-changing Chinese PE market. It offered a great platform to meet with LPs across the region."

"The AVCJ China Forum was a high value gathering, with authoritative and substantive speakers and ample opportunity to network and connect to a serious investment community. It is rare to find some 200 hundred China investment experts and decision makers of such caliber, from across China and broader Asia, under one roof. The market knowledge and future strategic orientation of the companies and individuals present at the 2016 AVCJ China Forum provided greater insight into future directions of the China economy, and anticipated behavior of Chinese consumers going forward, than any recent conference I have attended."
