Ethnic Tourism in China

Ethnic tourism is taking off in China, and its impact is felt most strongly in Yunnan province with its multitude of colourful ethnic groups.

Dr Sum is an anthropologist from the University of New Mexico. She spent a year in Guangzhou and 7 months in the sacred Lugu Lake area of Yunnan, home to the matrilineal Mosuo people. She has seen the impact of ethnic tourism close up. Tonight she questions the balance between massive increases in local revenues and the corresponding environmental destruction and threat to traditional lifestyles.

Come enjoy a fascinating glimpse of China’s traditional ethnic heritage, learn about how an anthropologist does research, and share your ideas on a sustainable future for ethnic minorities.

Branding in the New Media

We’re addicted to WeChat! Our average use is 5 hours a day, according to some research companies. While this might be a concern, it is also a major opportunity for company branding and sales.

Our speaker Yang Kunlong began opening WeChat accounts when he dropped out of school. Today he has more than 50 WeChat accounts and most have over a million followers. His monthly salary is in 6 figures.

Kunlong will speak in Chinese about how to build your brand using WeChat. Our veteran speaker Wendy Huang from GDPIC will translate. We also have Vic Wang, who has successfully promoted her fashion and design brand online using a range of platforms. In addition we want to listen to members of the audience. Please tell us if you would like ‘5 minutes on stage’ to tell us about your own brand.

IE visits Kazakhstan

This central Asian giant which neighbors China is probably the most misunderstood country in the world. Don’t be misinformed! Kazakhstan is the size of Western Europe with an economic growth rate similar to China’s. It’s a country of extreme weather, extreme landscape and extreme architecture with an old and new capital which couldn’t be more different from each other.

Sergey Filimonov was born and bred in Kazakhstan and is currently living in Guangzhou working in logistics. He will unveil what Kazakhstan has to offer and help us understand why it is becoming the hot destination for tourists and business people. Experience the culture of Kazakhstan this Tuesday evening with Sergey.

Falling in Love with Wine

Love is not always red, but sometimes pink or white! In recent years, white wine’s popularity has grown in China, while rosé is still little understood. So we asked 3 distinguished wine suppliers to let Idea Exchangers try their wine.

Tracey, an enthusiastic wine connoisseur, and Henry, a professional sommelier, will introduce four varieties of white and rosé wines from France, Italy and New Zealand. Together we will share, learn, taste and appreciate. If you have already fallen in love with red wine, be prepared to fall in love all over again!

E‘Coffee is just a few minutes’ walk from exit C of Tianhe Sports Center metro station on line 1. Entry fee is ¥30 each (or ¥10 for full-time students). Just call 85219198 if you get stuck. Come enjoy a stimulating evening with a friendly crowd every Tuesday at Idea Exchange.

Living in a city like Guangzhou can lead to a huge disconnect with nature. Ezequiel and Lukasz will talk about the benefits of being outdoors, share stories and videos of their trips and work to build a traveler’s community.
