Hong Kong and mainland China are closely connected via trade and investment links. Market opportunities arise when companies can successfully build on these connections to reach their target audience. No company can afford to be an island, especially those that are publicly-listed. Gaining media attention is an essential part of any communications strategy. 

The speakers will share their thoughts on issues and questions, including:

  • The state of Chinese financial media and the type of news content that is of interest to them.
  • Using the "Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect" trading link as an example, how can companies break into the Chinese market?
  • How to successfully build company awareness by going digital in China.
  • The state of the media in Hong Kong and how companies can establish good relations with local media.
  • How to engage with media via quality pitches?
  • How to measure success in media coverage?
  • Getting mainstream media to pay attention to a business is not easy. Why do some companies get press while others don't? What are the easy and difficult ways to gain earned media?
  • What makes Hong Kong-based journalists interested in write about mainland China-based companies and how can company executives become preferred, go-to sources?

Co-organized by The Chamber of Hong Kong Listed Companies and supported by The American Chamber of Commerce in Hong KongThe Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and International Association of Business Communicators Hong Kong, the event will be structured to foster an engaging and interactive conversation between the speakers and the audience.
