80 attend TEA Asia Pacific Division Beijing Mixer at Silkroading, Sept 22

Beijing -- On September 22, 2017, The 4th TEA Beijing Mixer took place, organized by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Asia Pacific Division and sponsored by Silkroading (Beijing) Co., Ltd. 

Membership in the TEA Asia Pacific Division has been growing, partly thanks to mixers and open houses such as the gathering at Silkroading, which was attended by some 80 people.

Thomas Megna, president of the TEA Asia Pacific Division and Chen Jianjun, the president of Silkroading, made a brief welcome speech at the event, expressing wishes for mutual understanding and the promotion of business cooperation.

Some well-established companies in the themed entertainment business were represented at this gathering, including Sanderson China, Gary Goddard Entertainment, Thinkwell Group, Cuningham Group

Also present were several well-known Chinese cultural industry investors and developers such as Riverside Culture & Investment Group , Springwoods and TUNGHSU GROUP, among others.

One of the things that makes these gatherings so valuable to the growth and improvement of the industry is the opportunity for developers, operators and creatives to meet one another and share vision, perspectives and experience.

TEA and Silkroading prepared a lavish dinner for everyone, and also offered a special feast of culture. The film "A Thousand Years of Mogao Caves" was presented in the Silkroading video hall. 

Everyone enjoyed the delicious food and the film, both of which generated plenty of informal discussion. With elegant music and soft lighting, Silkroading made this business gathering into a festive occasion.

Many thanks to Silkroading and to TEA for their work in facilitating these gatherings that enable our industry members to meet, communicate, learn and collaborate. These gatherings in China are very important in allowing members to learn the latest information and knowledge of the theme entertainment industry and the culture and travel industry. They enhance understanding and friendship between members, and lead to increased opportunties for business cooperation.
