SHANGHAI, China - The Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) is headed to China Oct. 29-Nov. 4. GAMA's 2006 Mission to China for Business Development is limited to 45 mission participants from GAMA China Coalition member companies and non-Coalition members alike. This three-city tour will stop in Shanghai, Zhongshan City, and Shunde.

The mission events package includes: a GAMA-sponsored welcome dinner; "matchmaking" meetings arranged with Chinese manufacturers, distributors, or other business contacts in Shanghai; one translator per GAMA member company for all matchmaking meetings; a seminar in Shanghai on Trade, Business, and Investment in China; a tour of an HVAC/Water Heater factory and boiler manufacturing facility in the Shanghai area; and many other events and opportunities.

Registrants for the mission will need to supply detailed, specific information on the types of matchmaking meetings in China that they require. Each meeting will be tailored to meet the specific requirements of each company participant. Any information supplied to GAMA will be treated as confidential. Registration and all matchmaking meeting information must be in by Sept. 8.
