WHERE ARE WE GOING?

THE NIGHT BEFORE

November 13th

Get-together for drinks and a bite at

On the first night, IMI Connect and Asia Outbound are hosting a joint cocktail and canapés event on the rooftop of the MGallery hotel in downtown Saigon.

 

Catch up with your industry friends and get to know some new ones while enjoying a bite and a drink amid a backdrop of soaring skyscrapers in this dynamic, fast-growing Asian mega-city of 21 million people. Drinks are on us!

 

ASIA OUTBOUND DAY

November 14th

Asia Outbound hosts its Asia Outbound Summit at the Intercontinental Hotel, providing the business development opportunity of the year in Vietnam.

AOS will bring together local Vietnamese agents and intermediaries, and connecting them with overseas solution providers from jurisdictions across the world.

Staying true to Asia Outbound’s brand promise, 75% of the attendees will be from the local market, giving you an unrivaled opportunity to find local partners looking for solution providers like you.

IMI CONNECT DAY

November 15th

Following up on our uniquely successful, guest-centric format, IMI Connect’s main day will take place aboard the Saigon Princess. 

We’ll remain at dock for the first part of the day for the no-holds-barred discussions our community has already come to know and love. 

As the sun sets, we’ll head to the upper deck to embark on our dinner cruise on the wave-free Saigon River, with the city’s gleaming skyline as our backdrop.

And, of course, we’ll determine this year’s Investment Migration Trivia champions!

 

THE MORNING AFTER

November 16th

Tropical Al-Fresco Brunch at

Asia Outbound and IMI will co-host a relaxed al-fresco lunch at CLAY Saigon.

This award-winning Mediterranean restaurant is a calming nature hideout within the bustling megacity.

Join us here for a final get-together with friends and colleagues from Global Citizen Week before we bid each other farewell until next time.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Four days of activities across two separate events – IMI Connect, Asia Outbound Summit, and two joint events –  as well top-shelf Vietnamese and international cuisine and an open bar from lunch onward.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

IMI Connect takes place in a relaxed and informal atmosphere and, since we are in the tropics this time, we recommend light clothing of the smart casual variety.

WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

Most of us will be staying at the Intercontinental, where we have obtained preferential rates for our guests.

Leave your details in the form below and we’ll reach out with further details.

WHO'S COMING?

IMI Connect is a for-the-industry, by-the-industry event. You’ll meet IMI contributors, partners, and readers like yourself. 

They come to talk frankly and off-the-cuff about the challenges and opportunities facing RCBI professionals, not to make dull and repetitive presentations about particular projects. Speakers and panelists will be selected based on their relevant expertise, not based on sponsorship alone.
