In honor of the valuable contributions made by Chinese exhibitors and agents to the success of Hyve events in 2023, an exclusive party was hosted on 10th January at the InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun by the ISOBJ team. Hyve’s Beijng and Shanghai teams brought together over 100 key exhibitors and agents from China for a memorable evening.
Hyve’s Regional Director, Thomas Whelan opened the event by sharing the key highlights from 2023 and how Hyve will drive further value creation in 2024 as a strategic partner.
This was followed by Hyve’s Sourcing Director, Suzanne Ellingham who shared her reflections on how the Chinese exhibitors and agents were impacting our Sourcing events.
In 2023, Hyve launched its Sourcing Proposition to bring together manufacturers with buyers and procurement professionals who are looking for new suppliers, creating the European gateway to UK and European retail.
In 2024, Hyve’s Sourcing Division aims to double in size, a fantastic growth trajectory that can only be continued through the power of these partnerships and connections.
The event was also an opportunity to harness in-person connections. Engaging in an interactive session, attendees had the opportunity to reflect on their accomplishments in 2023 and exchanged thoughts on their aspirations for the upcoming 2024 event cycle.
