The Asia Pacific Conference for Deans and Directors is aimed at allowing heads of business schools in both the Asia-Pacific region and wider to take 3 days out to focus on the strategic issues facing education leaders, now and in the future.
Hangzhou is one of China’s most beautiful places and the adjacent West Lake Cultural Landscape has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are direct flights to Hangzhou from many cities. Alternatively, it is just under an hour’s train journey on the bullet train from Shanghai.
