I am happy to co-host the first DLD GLOBAL reception in Beijing. The DLD conference (Digital-Life-Design) is held every January in Munich before the World Economic Forum in Davos. Next year, in addition to Munich, DLD GLOBAL will launch in China.

The reception in Beijing will be on Sunday 12 Sep from 4pm to 7pm at 798 Art District. We already have some great participants to celebrate the launch decision. Please email me if you are interested in attending.
