IAG Meeting, February 2015
18th February, 2015
Corporate Partner and exporting expert, Stuart Haynes attended the recent Integrated Advisory Group International (IAG) meeting and here gives a synopsis of the event.
The conference was arranged in Hong Kong for the purposes of welcoming in new members from South East Asia and also to meet new prospective members from the region.
The conference was hosted at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Hong Kong Island.
There were 38 firms in attendance from 26 countries with a total of 70 delegates and observers.
New firms who gave presentations and who were ratified at the event were from Mumbai in India, Christchurch in New Zealand, Vietnam and other locations in South East Asia and New Caledonia.
The meeting also received presentations from observers who were seeking ratification at the next meeting, these being from firms in Hong Kong, South Korea, Shang Hi, Poland and Taiwan.
All of the presentations gave an overview of the firms involved, the areas of expertise and the geographic areas that they operated in, together with some useful with regards to doing business in those territories.
Following on from the presentations and the normal business of the meeting, the special interest groups met for discussion during the afternoon on various topics.
The event was well attended and new contacts were made and as usual, a good exchange of information and potential work between members.
The next meeting is scheduled for Rotterdam at the end of May with the final meeting in 2015 being scheduled for Athens in October.
IAG can now truly call itself an international organisation with members spreading from Europe through North America, South America, Australia, The Middle East, Russia and South East Asia.
