Mark Millar will be visiting Birmingham, England to present two Asia-focused educational seminars at Multimodal 2016 – the UK’s largest transport and logistics expo – taking place during 10-12 May at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England.

The Asian Century is indisputably here - any company that is serious about business growth needs to be in Asia, sourcing or selling - or both. But Asia is highly diverse and formidably complex. The nuances can be difficult to read and expensive to ignore. Unlocking Asia’s business opportunities inevitably presents challenges – especially when it comes to supply chain and logistics.

During these executive briefings, Mark will share key learnings gained from his 20+ years’ experience on the ground in Asia, providing delegates with informed and independent insights on the challenges and opportunities in Asia.
