FastCompanyTV moves to China (for a visit)

No, we’re not outsourcing, next Wednesday we’ll be going to China for a sizeable trip to hear from entrepreneurs and venture capitalists there and get some tours around factories. I’m telling you this so we can arrange some fun dinners and other impromptu events. It’s Rocky’s first time there, and I haven’t been to China in 10 years, so it’ll be interesting to see the differences.

November 5. Travel day.
November 6. We arrive in Shanghai in early evening.
November 7. Going to Wuxi to see Seagate’s factory and possibly others there.
November 8. Travel back from Wuxi, we’d like to have a dinner in Shanghai — any ideas where we could do that? I remember having fun at the Peace Hotel, but looking for other ideas.
November 9. Meeting with VC’s and entrepreneurs in Shanghai.
November 10. Travel to Shenzhen.
November 11. In Shenzhen. Meet with Phil Baker and Liam Casey, “Mr. China.”
November 12. In Shenzhen. Anyone want to meet up? Let us know.
November 13. In Shenzhen. There’s a Blogger Dinner planned that evening that I’ll attend.
November 14. Travel to Guangzhou to join up with the also happening China 2.0 blogger tour.
November 15. In Guangzhou for the Chinese Bloggercon.
November 16. In Guangzhou for the Chinese Bloggercon.
November 17. Travel to Hong Kong. Any bloggers want to get together in Hong Kong? We’re looking for a fun dinner or something to do.
November 18. Travel home.

We’re also planning out some trips to factories and other things but will try to fit other things in. Hope to see you there!

  7. My favorite meal in Shanghai was at a local Chinese “family” restaurant. Much better than the fancy French restaurant that cost 5 times as much.

    Don’t remember the name, but they are a dime a dozen in Shanghai. Awesome people watching, as groups of families and friends meet there and celebrate…whatever. Order a la carte from the picture menu. What a meal!

  17. Robert,

    I just returned from Hong Kong myself, and I offer one word of advice: Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong is a tourist trap and a complete nightmare, do yourself a favor and avoid the congestion when planning dinner! Soho’s a bit more pleasant. :)
