Founding partner of Delaney Law, William Delaney, is proud to provide the closing keynote address for May’s edition of the International Business Council‘s Langham Briefs series at Chicago’s historic Langham Hotel.
This month’s topic of business development between Hong Kong and the Midwest is particularly close to Mr. Delaney’s heart owing to his strong ties to Hong Kong and his continued efforts to tell the world that “Illinois is open for business!”
Presenters include representatives from Garrett Brands, makers of one of Chicago’s favorite treats, Garrett Popcorn, and members of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Sure to be top-of-mind is Garrett’s recent successful expansion into the Hong Kong market, a perfect example of a brand with Chicago ties as strong as they come bridging the Pacific and finding good fortune in The East.

LANGHAM BRIEFS: Think Asia, Think Hong Kong
Thursday, May 14th from 3:30 to 5:30pm at the Langham Hotel, 330 N. Wabash Avenue. T
he Illinois Chamber’s International Business Council conducted a unique discussion with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
The program examined Hong Kong as Asia’s central business district and the global gateway to China. Heard from industry experts as they discussed how U.S. companies could use the Hong Kong advantage as a business platform to diversify their business to Asia, and meet potential partners or investors in a strategic, effective and efficient way.
“As Asia continues to grow in more ways and more places, U.S. companies may benefit from identifying, even redefining, the most appropriate strategic approach for tapping extant and emerging opportunities in Asia, including the Chinese regional markets. In their ongoing quest for international success, U.S. businesses, especially SMEs, are finding that Hong Kong, Asia’s top international trade and financial center, is able to strengthen and even fast-track their efforts”, said Mr. Winchell Cheung, Director of Midwest HKTDC.
