    China Experts to Lead Networking Discussions at TNCN Annual Meeting March 28

    Annual Meeting graphic


    Hearing from high-profile executives and getting updated on the latest in the US-China and TN-China business relationships will be at the top of the agenda for the inaugural TN-China Network (TNCN) annual meeting in Nashville on March 28, 2019, Commemorating 40 Years of US-China Relations.

    After the executive business panel, however, attendees will be in for a unique opportunity to have small group discussions on timely China-related topics with China and business experts from across the southeast US. During this facilitated “Table Topics” networking lunch, attendees choose which two topics they are most interested in and will eat, connect, and discuss with others of similar interests. We will have two rotations of 30-minute Table Topics discussions, with a break in-between to get dessert and switch tables. Each attendee will have the opportunity to participate in two different topic discussions or to network at one of our general networking tables that will have no set topic or facilitator.
