Dear International Colleagues,


We are pleased to announce the 2018 Global Staff Forum, to be held in the dynamic city of Hong Kong, from Monday, November 5th through end-of-day Tuesday, November 6th, 2018.


All Best Buddies International staff are cordially invited to participate in this event, in which we will have the opportunity to share experiences, perform training reviews, and discuss important topics with our fellow Best Buddies colleagues from all regions.


This year, there are various Forum Package Options to choose from, based on your needs and interests. For those seeking to minimize their cost impact, and recognizing that many flights options exist departing Hong Kong very late Tuesday, November 6th, to Europe, North American, and South America, the two-night option may be effective for your consideration. One could check out from the room on Tuesday, continue attending the conference with your luggage held by the hotel, and then depart for the airport late Tuesday for your particular overnight flight. As well, the three-night stay will provide you with greater flexibility while in Hong Kong.
