The event was deemed a resounding success, with more than 60 industry professionals from all over the region coming together to make new friends, re-connect with old ones, and generally enjoy a fun, relaxing get-together.
The casual, after-work event was hosted by the centrally located Irish Pub No. 9, near the city’s famed People’s Square.
AECOM’s Chris Yoshii, President of TEA’s Asia-Pacific Division Board, made the trip up from Hong Kong to attend the event and was very pleased with the turn-out.
“The enthusiasm for this first event among Shanghai’s local industry professionals was really exciting to see,” Yoshii said. “It clearly demonstrated that the TEA’s decision to expand into Asia-Pacific was the right one. We look forward to replicating the success of this event across the entire Asia-Pacific region in the months to come.”
The mixer attendees represented nearly twenty different companies, including a variety of local companies, as well as some long-standing members of TEA’s international family. Among the best-represented were Disney’s Shanghai team, Forrec Ltd., consultants from AECOM, Sanderson Group, and Birket Engineering.
