    Speaker participation in the conference

      We encourage all speakers to take advantage of their free admission to the conference and to attend for all two days. Having speakers present throughout the conference helps make the atmosphere at tcworld China interesting and exciting. Both delegates and speakers have told us that they enjoy the opportunities to interact at the event, not only in the formal sessions, but also in the breaks, at the vendor exhibition, and at social events associated with the conference. If the number of speaking proposals we receive is greater than the number of available sessions, we reserve the right to give priority to speakers who indicate that they will attend the full conference.
