Opening Day Photos & Highlights from China's World  Domain Conference in Wuzhen

China's World Domain Conference got underway today in Wuzhen with a day primarily devoted to the logistics of shuttling guests from three area airports to the show venue - the Waterside Resort - and getting them registered for the business sessions that will begin tomorrow morning (Thursday, July 7). There will also be a welcoming dinner tonight that is actually underway as I write 

this (there is a 12-hour time difference between the U.S. Eastern time zone and Wuzhen - when it is 10am here it is 10pm there).

Below: In a fortuitous coincidence, Deepak Daftari (eSiksha.com), at left, and Anand Vora (Donuts Inc.) bumped into each other at the airport and rode to the hotel together. Since I couldn't be there this week, Anand and Deepak agreed to be our "eyes on the ground" with Anand sending in daily photos and Deepak planning a post-show review of the event that will continue through Saturday morning when guests will begin their journeys back home. 

Above and below: Anand snapped these beautiful shots at the Wuzhen Waterside Resort where registration for the World Domain Conference, being presented by Yumi.com, got underway today. Wednesday was a day for getting settled in and doing some casual networking before the business sessions start Thursday morning.

Below: The magnificent Grand Hall at the Wuzhen Waterside Resort that will become the center of activity when the World Domain Conference business sessions get underway Thursday morning (July 7). That first business day will run from 9:30am to 5pm with a banquet and cocktail party following tomorrow night. 

Friday will be a mixture of  business and pleasure with speakers and panel discussions in the morning, followed by an afternoon devoted to touring Wuzhen. Saturday, like today, will be devoted more to logistics with WDC shuttling guests back to their respective airports. You can see the full conference agenda here

Due to the time difference with China, when we wake up Thursday morning the first business day will already be over there! Photos and highlights from how that went will be in our next look inside the World Domain Conference.
