The International Academy of TV Arts & Sciences made its second trip out to Asia this year. Members from all over the TV planet converged on the hazy city of Hong Kong to network and find out what was going on in the gateway to China. The highlight of the trip for TMVC was meeting the international community – from Portugal! USA! Lebanon! China! Nigeria! Norway! Germany! Japan! France! Australia! Israel! And ourselves representing Singapore! and going to a nice sake bar in Soho.
Over 2 days, we had a sneak peek of Phoenix TV’s breathtaking newsroom studio and museum – and were privileged to have former Chief Executive of Hong Kong Tung Chee Hwa give an eloquent breakfast talk on China. The opening forum on Asia had some great insights from Dragongate’s William Pfeiffer and Hill & Knowlton’s James Heimowitz. We are of course providing a highly condensed version of events.
Thanks again to the Academy and Phoenix TV – especially CEO Liu Changle – for sponsoring the event and the dinners. We felt privileged to be there. Till the next event!
