A successful inaugural University of Adelaide alumni event in Beijing, China has paved the way for future annual gatherings in different regions across the country.
Approximately 50 alumni, friends and University staff gathered at the Marco Polo Parkside Hotel in Beijing on 21 October for the event.
Pro Vice-Chancellor International Professor John Taplin hosted the gathering, and the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Professions, Professor Pascale Quester was guest speaker.
In future, the University hopes to hold annual alumni events in other regions in China.
Development and Alumni staff also held a wine-tasting event in Hong Kong with that country's well-established alumni network.
The Hong Kong event was hosted by Adelaide Cellar Door and also featured McLaren Vale winemaker and University of Adelaide oenology graduate Sue Trott, of Five Geese Wines.
