    The idea was floated today of a mini in china in 2015. A visit to the SEG and the led markets and the led fair in Guanghouz. Probably also mixed in with some awesome food some cultural stuff and maybe a visit to a factory or two!

    I would estimate the costs excluding airfares for a 5 day trip to be around 700 to 800 dollars. Airfares ex aus run about 1200 to 2000. ( plus spending money for blinky! )

    Timing would be either late feb or early June.

    I would be happy to help arrange this. Is anyone else keen

    Any attendees are going to have to wear a web enabled go-pro and be suitably setup for purchasing and organising shipments from online requests.

    If you havent been to China before then just being in China is an experience in itself and then you realize how small we really are in Australia

    I'd be down for some space in the container and as much as I'd love to do a trip to china. It's something my wife and I have spoken about doin together. So I'll just have to wait.
