I’m in Chengdu for the GRAPHISOFT Asia Pacific Partners Conference which I’ve attended for the last few years. This is the first time I’ve spent time in China beyond passing through an airport.
Chengdu is the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan and its been an interesting visit to date (I passed on eating brain at one of the social events).
As with a lot of cities the are contrasts everywhere you walk. Walking in one direction and I’m in a domestic styled hopping mall where all the shops are in two storey buildings that look more like houses. Walking in the other direction and the quality of life is a lot different.
I’m doing a presentation regarding pricing – which generally isn’t most people’s favourite topic but fingers crossed it goes well.
