At the heart of our editorial policy is our belief that there is enormous good to be had with regards to Australia’s engagement with its Asian neighbours. Some of the best case studies can be found within our own Australia’s property industry in which quality development projects come to life through Asian investment coupled with the creative flair and sure experience of local Australian designers and project teams. The journey starts with the Asian client with an aspirational vision that goes beyond the bottom line and a committed and passionate Australian project team that delivers on that vision. It has been a joy for The Asian Executive to explore this theme across Melbourne and Sydney in our current edition.

We officially announcement our exciting program for this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival charity ball to be held at the Palladium at Crown on Friday evening, 28 October 2016. Last year’s event drew 1,000 corporate guests from around Asia and Australia making it the largest Asian corporate black tie event for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. This year’s program promises to be equally amazing. Our special guest this year is the 2015 Emirates Melbourne Cup winning jockey, Michelle Payne. Her extraordinary win last year cemented her place in the history books as the first female rider to win the coveted prize. This year’s musical entertainment will again bring a lot of dancing pleasure for our well-dressed guests. We pay tribute to the Swedish pop sensation of the seventies and early eighties, ABBA in a concert program that will delight our international guests.

The Asian Executive has played a role in bringing together executives for a decade through countless boardroom meetings, seminars and glamorous events. Our forward-thinking editorial policy augments our credentials as a bridge between cultures and nations. We relish the challenges of the next decade as new technology now at our disposal makes the leap of imagination to bigger audiences all the more achievable.
