How to Communicate with Hong Kong and China Media to Effectively Build Company Awareness?
Hong Kong and mainland China are now closely connected via trade and investment links such as the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect launched in December 2016. Market opportunities arise when companies, especially the public-listed companies can successfully build on these connections to reach their target audience and investors. A strong media relationship and a thorough understanding of the media landscape in Hong Kong and mainland China are essential and determining factors for executing a successful investor communication strategy.
The speakers, comprising professionals from the media and PR industries, will share their thoughts on pertinent questions, including:
The state of the Chinese financial media and the type of news content that is of their interest.
- Using the “Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect” as an example, how can companies break into the Chinese market? 以「深港通」為例，解釋企業該如何打進中國市場？

- The state of the media in Hong Kong and how companies can establish good relations with the local media. 香港傳媒的情況，企業該如何與本地媒體建立良好關係。
- How to engage with media with a quality pitch?
- How to measure success in media coverage?
