Having worked on a wide range of consultancy projects for companies ranging from Coca-Cola and Pernod Ricard through to Grundfos and Adidas, Newman Tours boasts four years of Shanghai specific consultancy experience.

For this reason we were recently approached by PricewaterhouseCoopers and asked to develop a Shanghai Business Tour for an international conference between their 33 most senior Asian partners in Shanghai. The result was so successful in strengthening their partners’ understanding of the Chinese marketplace, that we have now begun offering a tailored version of the tour to corporations, educational institutes and business professionals.

By analysing the history and present reality of your industry in China and Shanghai, Newman Tours offers you predictions about the future that will help you better pre-empt important market changes that are yet to take place. Whether you want to understand finance, politics, consumer trends or any other aspect of China’s development, this Tailored Tour will help you better achieve your goals in the Middle Kingdom.
