On a preconference day participants also had a chance to visit Chinese most successful companies such as Alibaba, Geely or Wensly. The company visits gave a unique opportunity to look inside these companies that represent Chinese economic growth and entrepreneurial revival.

On the last day we did some sightseeing of Hangzhou which lies in Zhejiang province, and it is known for its entrepreneurial spirit. It was a very interesting cultural experience.

Official part of CEEMAN Annual Conference came to an end with CEEMAN Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony, where certificates were delivered to new CEEMAN members, schools that have acquired the IQA Accreditation, and to the winners of the 23rd CEEMAN Case Writing Competition organized in cooperation with Emerald Group Publishing and 2017 CEEMAN Champion Awards recipients.
