Asia Outbound’s energetic team is very professional at what they do: business publications, conference organization, content coordination, and cultural localization. Excellent content: timely and relevant, high-level speakers and panelists. The event well participated and a great exposure opportunity for us. Overall highly valuable publications and conferences that help us target the right audience in China.

I think this is the most important summit on the calendar for China. It's a great opportunity for Harneys as a BVI and Cayman law firm because we are meeting people who have clients who have very particular needs of investing their money outbound. It's the networking opportunities and meeting people that are the beauty of this conference. Everyone is here with the knowledge that they should network and it's a very fruitful place for networking. Very slick and well-organized operations and we’ve been very impressed.

The reason we choose this offshore summit is we think that this is actually one of the best offshore events in Asia. […] The amount of attendees has been truly amazing for the past five years; I’ve really seen the growth and the depth of the Chinese investors and the professional industry coming together.

Today I spoke to many managers, Chinese lawyers, bank representatives and I also met and had good discussions with professional investors.  I feel they all have so much experience in what we were speaking about today.  I hope after this initial introduction they better understand the benefits of low tax jurisdictions in Seychelles and Mauritius there will be many opportunities to collaborate in the future.  Because this event was such a success we’re already thinking about organizing similar events in the future here.

-Leon Mao, Former Head of Trusts & Offshore Legal Counsel at First Advisory Group

As an offshore lawyer specializing in fiduciary solutions from Hong Kong since the 1990s, in my view the Asia Outbound Summit series is one of the best for building networks and reputation among the clients with whom we are keen to work. For local delegates in Asia, it provides a valuable learning insight into the “new world” of sophisticated offshore structuring, and an opportunity to meet leading professionals firsthand.

-Leon Mao, Former Head of Trusts & Offshore Legal Counsel at First Advisory Group

This is my first time at the conference and it’s been excellent, extremely well organized, I've been impressed by the quality of the delegates, the presentations have been informative with useful insights of senior professionals.

Cook Islands Event

I thought today’s event appeared to go very well. Certainly during the networking breaks there were a lot of interesting questions.

-John Hobbs, Commissioner at Cook Islands Financial Supervisory Commission

We’re very pleased with the turnout. We think it’s great that so many people were interested in the Cook Islands or had never heard of it and wanted to know more or knew about it and knew the services we provided.  It was great to have this opportunity here in Shanghai to bring the services of the Cook Islands, to teach everyone a little bit more about what they can do for their clients and how that appeals to the Chinese citizens and we look forward to doing more of them.
