Sink your teeth into breakfast and a stimulating program of content and discussion at the premiere event in Marketing magazine's Food for Thought executive series. Over breakfast you will hear from two experts on marketing to the Chinese consumer – not just in China, but locally too, where there is an untapped market, more than a million strong, but of very different profiles. Find out who they are and how to talk to them from those in the know.
