Date: 24th - 25th July | Location: Cordis Hotel, Mong Kok, Hong Kong

GradConnection is excited to be hosting the 2018 Returnee Summit from 24th to 25th July in Hong Kong. The aim of the summit is to connect top employers with renowned overseas universities for face-to-face networking opportunities. In order to select top graduates for your organisation, it is crucial to establish and build relationships with these leading universities.

We know it's important for you to connect with top returnee students, that's why we partnered with the best universities in Australia, the UK and USA to help you find the right fit for your company.

Last year we had 30 university career centre from AU, UK and USA came all the way to HK attending our summit and meeting with employers, around 700 returnee students registered at our returnee career fair as well.

At the 2018 GradConnection Returnee Summit, our goal is to help more employers and universities to share ideas with each other and in doing so eliminating information asymmetry.
