China, the sleeping giant has awoken. Australia is it’s close neighbour. What does this fast growing economy mean for the Australian creative industry? What are the opportunities that lie ahead for the design, art and architecture communities? Two design firms and an architectural firm who have worked extensively in Asia will share their experiences, insights, observations, collaborations, successes and challenges designing for the Asian market. Find out how different the market is, what are the trends, what cultural faux pas should be avoided and what changes they see coming in the next five years. A speaker from Department of Industry and Investment will provide a current market and economic overview and logistics of doing business in China.
