Senior government officials, green investors and leading eco companies to attend ECO INDUSTRY and LOHAS FORUM 2011 in Shanghai

Many of China’s senior government officials from the environmental, water and agriculture sector will attend the ECO INDUSTRY AND LOHAS FORUM 2011, in Shanghai. They will be joined by green investors, industry experts and top executives from China’s growing eco industry.

To be held from 15 to 16 September 2011, the two-day forum will serve as a platform for networking and learning the latest developments in the eco industry, in China as well as internationally. Participants will be presented with insights into the challenges facing the eco industry in China, as well as strategies to tap into green opportunities. Speakers from renowned companies will share their green marketing strategies, case studies and ways to grow green brands and develop eco businesses.

The two-day forum is held in conjunction with ECO LIFESTYLES 2011, the largest and most comprehensive eco exhibition in China. To be held at the Shanghai World Expo Theme Pavilion from 15 to 17 September 2011, the event aims to bring together eco-friendly companies and green brands. It also aims to grow China’s LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) market, by educating the consumer on the benefits of eco-friendly and green products, as well as encouraging green and eco-friendly lifestyles.
