  2. 2. Imagine a 500% return on investment, ongoing cost savings... Chinese and Indian companies are now aggressively moving into European and American markets. This directly affects your customers. If you operate only locally, you risk becoming obsolete. Improvements in technology and business processes are occurring globally. These are producing productivity gains that might both impress and concern you at the same time. Companies with lower cost bases can undercut you unless you adopt their strategies in advance. After all, how do you compete with a company that hires 5 skilled, motivated people for the same cost as you hire 1-2 similar resources? With this in mind, we also know that working with offshore partners can deliver tangible benefits to you: 1) You can save money in day-to-day operations, marketing, sales, IT and other areas. 2) You can save time and improve service by accessing more resources on a near-24 hour schedule. 3) You can increase your product offerings, add more value to your existing offerings, or approach entirely markets to bring better financial results. All of this is possible through the right offshore collaborations. Outsourcing low-value work is just the beginning. Offshore branch offices and global collaborations are the next waves in business. India and China offer vast pools of skilled human resources, money for investments, and well-established business professionals that can work with you to enhance your business. Rather than becoming your adversaries, they can become your partners in success today and in the future. In order to realize these possibilities, you need to take a serious look at China and India to know how to work with them. Media and the Internet paint a partial picture. Business cannot function on half information. You can only get the full picture by meeting the people who are actually making things happen on the ground. The Asia Connections 2010 conference is designed specifically to address this issue. We offer an un-edited, live venue for you to meet hands-on leaders from India and China. We have invited business leaders, government officials, and outsourcing professionals to participate in a highly-interactive environment. You will have the opportunity to meet with keynote speakers and others on a one-to-one basis. You will meet corporate peers, discuss relevant topics, and learn from their live experiences with offshore collaborations. You will witness live round-table sessions where questions are posed by groups of business executives that have large stakes in the success of offshore ventures. The Asia Connections 2010 conference is unlike anything that you may have experienced, or even heard of in the past. An interactive outsourcing conference of this scale is a world-wide phenomenon. And to make it even more relevant to you, there is also a limited opportunity to take part in rare pre- and post-conference activities that will dramatically improve the results you see from attending the conference. Imagine a 500% return on investment, ongoing cost savings, and a much more stable, global operation that dramatically improves your business. BENEFITS FOR ATTENDEES Asia Connections Event offers the latest strategies insights, an overview of trends and future development of business models. Top executive knowledge about why outsourcing is growing so quickly and how companies can take advantage of it.
