    As a spin of the presidents talk about China at the melbourne mini it was suggested that we might arrange a trip up the the land of blinky flashy in 2012, go to one of the big lighting trade shows, visit a few factorys in Ghanghouz and Shenzhen, and probably a day in Hongkong, for a 5-6 day trip

    As an estimate only, the cost to do such a trip would be around $A2000- 2500, ( ex Melbourne or Sydney ) which would include airfares, accommodation and ground travel in china.. Theres two major trade fairs, one in early march and one in early june.

    If your interested ( and this is'nt a committement ) let us know, and if theres enough interest ( say 5 people ) we could turn this into a reality.

    Regards


    Andrew.

    yes MPH does sound like fun. Not sure which is the better show but March does give plenty of time to order and tinker.
