On October 5-13, 2011, would you like to be on an exciting, almost free visit to China?
ACCE and Citslinc invites you to join your chamber peers on a trip to China, one of the world's most fascinating and economically vibrant countries, rich in culture and history. This visit is for chamber executives who want to take an eight-day tour of China to see what this trip is like so that, perhaps, they will take their own chamber group to China. Such visits have become major non-dues revenue producers for hundreds of chambers. If the Chamber CEO can’t go, he or she may designate one staff member from the chamber to travel in his or her place at this amazing price.
Thanks to Citslinc sponsorship, the price to you is only $250 (a deposit of $500, of which $250 will be returned after the trip). You will also need to obtain a visa to China, which is $155 for U.S. travelers.
This is the sixth such ACCE trip; more than 150 ACCE members have taken it already. The trip will include visits to Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Suzhou. You will see seven of the top 10 tourist attractions in China, including the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. You will stay in excellent accommodations and enjoy good food (mostly Chinese, of course). And you will get to hear from some U.S. executives and Chinese authorities about doing business with China.
You are able to bring guests at an affordable rate – leaving from New York’s Kennedy airport (JFK) for $1899 or the Los Angeles airport (LAX) for $1799.
You will need to get to LAX or JFK Airport, but after that, your airfare and everything else (save a $25 tip), including hotels, meals, transportation, and guides/interpreters, is completely covered by Citslinc. Not a bad deal for $250!
A few requirements for attendance are:
- You and/or your chamber have not done a trip to China with Citslinc before.
- You have some interest in the idea of offering a China trip to your members. The trip does not obligate you to take your chamber members to China, but it's important that you be willing to consider the possibility.
- While most on these visits are CEOs, you do not have to be, provided that your chamber CEO indicates in writing that you are being sent on this trip to explore the possibility of a China tour for your chamber.
Registration for this trip is due July 15, 2011. To register for the trip or learn more, contact Carly Dubernas: firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.998.3525.
