NB 1: Poster Table Discussions: Posters created for the conference will be strategically placed on discussion tables in the venue. They will enable forum participants to identify potential partners and poster presenters to focus discussion.

NB 2: Lightning Style: These presentations are very focused presentations, no more than 7 (seven minutes) designed to generate debate about entrepreneurial activities in New Zealand and China. This lightning approach will provide the foundation for individuals, institutions, agencies and industry to engage in meaningful discussions on future initiatives.
