Every year, a select group of highly-qualified chief executives are invited to a private and relaxing settings to engage in lively and trendy business conversations. During the dialog, they often exchange stories sharing a common denominator: global business trends, opportunities, and issues concerning both China and the U.S. The intimate atmosphere at the Summit creates, unparalleled openness and collegiality among the attendees, empowering those executives to share thoughts and vision in a productive way. Besides personal friendships and lasting business connections, the Summit often generates concrete results that are carried to fruition. Sometimes, significant business deals are struck on the site of the Summit.

The Summit is hosted by HYSTA's Executive Program (EP), which is a go-to Silicon Valley hub connecting Chinese business leaders across the Pacific--from Silicon Valley to Zhong Guan Cun and beyond. Typical EP members include serial entrepreneurs and senior executives of publicly traded companies; their membership is via invitation only.
