FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ASIA PACIFIC PROPERTIES: PROUD SPONSORS OF THE WORLDWIDE ERC® GLOBAL WORKFORCE SUMMIT®
SHANGHAI, CHINA, 03/09/2011 – With China being the top relocation destination in 2010, and Asia continuing to grow in economic significance worldwide, Asia Pacific Properties once again sponsored the ‘Worldwide ERC® Global Workforce Summit: Focus on Asia-Pacific’ on 8-9 March at the Shanghai Pudong Shangri-la. Created for the mobility-focused HR professional, the event enjoyed record attendance of 500 attendees making it the most successful Worldwide ERC (Employee Relocation Council) conference in Asia to date.
The Summit provided the ideal forum for HR professionals to discuss industry developments and benchmark against the latest corporate & government policies in workforce mobility. Of key importance was the opportunity for mainland Chinese HR professionals to network with top HR and mobility leaders from around the world, and learn best practices from many Fortune 500 companies.
Asia Pacific Properties was honored to once again be recognized for its contribution to WERC, with Beverly Sunn, APP President and Founder and former Board of Directors member for WERC, moderating one of the conference sessions and Joshua Miller, Director of APP being appointed to the Asia Pacific Leadership Committee of WERC.
While a large proportion of companies still feel pressured to reduce costs & assignment expenses, mobility volumes are beginning to indicate a global recovery in the industry. China has been one of the few global exceptions to the downward trend exhibited during the last two years, with relocation activity into China increasing considerably in spite of the financial crisis as companies continue to focus on China’s growing consumer population for their long-term growth goals. 2nd and 3rd tier cities such as Chengdu are continuing to grow in prominence alongside Shanghai & Beijing while an accelerating intra-Asia trend of relocations to China has evolved out of company objectives to develop regional talent.
Asia Pacific Properties has been a pioneer of premium real estate & relocation services since being founded in 1985. Since its inception, the company’s focus has been to create a smooth, positive transition for relocating executives and their families, and to protect the real estate interests for long term cost savings for corporations. Headquartered in Hong Kong, APP has offices in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, and has provided relocation services on a project basis to over twenty 2nd and 3rd tier cities across China.
APP is a proud member of the relocation industry’s leading trade group, Worldwide ERC® with more than 300,000 HR professionals having relied on the group for benchmarking, unbiased research, and acclaimed educational & networking events for over 30 years.
