Walmart China 2011 Year Beginning Meeting

Walmart China successfully hosted their two day celebration for the start of their new year of plans known as the ‘Year Beginning Meeting’ at China National Convention Center (CNCC) in Beijing right after the major Spring Festival holidays.  There were some 4,000 delegates attending from the 329 Walmart stores across China today.   
Sarah Liang, Senior Marketing Manager of Walmart China said: “We chose this venue because of the professional services it provides; not only the software but also the hardware; and we are looking forward to co-operating with CNCC more and deeper in the future. “  
To accommodate all the highly excited participants, many of whom had created their own “team” costumes, rooms were booked in 9 hotels in the surrounding area, including the on-site CNCC Grand Hotel, and an efficient bus transport operation was organized to bring everyone to the CNCC on time.  Entertaining all the attendees during the two days were 79 of Walmart’s key suppliers in a 13,000m2 exhibition.  
Walmart China’s home office is located in the south of China in Shenzhen.  Its store outlets are now spreading right across China and approximately 3,300 people traveled to Beijing whilst 300 attended from the 8 Beijing stores.  Sarah Liang also said: “I am very impressed with the work we have done last year and all the efforts we have put in together!  The success of this event has fully proven our co-ordination and our working ability.”  
With the theme of One Team, this year’s ‘Year Beginning Meeting’ is geared to share the New Year strategy of Walmart with all the associates in China as well as to celebrate the previous year outcomes and thank the associates for all the hard work they have put into these achievements.  During the meeting there were many awards presented including 5 prestigious company awards for the most outstanding associates. The messages were delivered in motivating presentations instead of in a formal business style – there were also many visits to the Olympic Green site.   Commenting to CNCC on the choice of the venue Sarah referred to this prestigious location as being a key element in their decision making “After we inspected all the suggested venues in China, finally we decided to come to Beijing, because your venue is just right next to the Bird Nest and Water Cube, everyone is interested and wants to come to the capital to see it themselves“.
