    We took a step at demystifying Asia with information from across the region at our event in the Japanese Friendship Garden, Winship House... and with speakers from across the world including Tokyo and Singapore. That was fun, and challenging!

    Due to technical glitches we weren't able to get all the way through the program and so we've added more to our 'Part 2' session November 8th at Skysong, 8-10am. Hope you can join us! More on November 8th HERE

    Last night our Asia experts shared opportunities for U.S. companies to grow in Asia. The event was hosted by the Japanese Friendship Garden and we had some great food and drink sponsors... including Hiro Sake, Hana Japanese Eatery, Asahi Bakery and Cherry Blossom Noodle Cafe. おいしい! Delicious!
