Roll up! Roll up!

For our 76th social mixer, we've invited a special guest from the Chinese Motherland, Byron Constable (http://cn.linkedin.com/in/shanghairaceclub), Chairman of the Shanghai Race Club (http://www.theshanghairaceclub.com/), established in 1862.

A 20-year China Hand and serial entrepreneur, Byron is now applying his knowledge of digital marketing to convert the Shanghai Race Club from a business based on turf to one based on the world wide web.

This year, the Club launched Paoma.com (http://www.paoma.com/), a website where you can watch live horse races (thanks to a partnership with PPTV) from the tracks of Ireland, England and Scotland, study race results and buy your very own thoroughbred! The first races already attracted over 500,00o live video streams.

Doors open at 6:30pm with the interview starting at 7:15pm on Wednesday 16th October, 2013 at Bisous, 9/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham St, Central, Hong Kong.

The entrance fee of HK$100 includes a complimentary drink and the opportunity to meet driven internet entrepreneurs and digital media folk.

Remember to dress up for this one as we hope to recreate Royal Ascot Races in the lush fields of Lam Kwai Fong!
