In partnership with the Chinese Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), the Manufacturers' Agents National Association (MANA), Laguna Hills, Calif., is sponsoring a trip to China July 9-18. The trip is MANA's second trade mission to China.

Participants will visit with manufacturers in the Shanghai and Guangzhou areas that match up with the agency profiles of the registrants. MANA will again produce seminars for the Chinese on how to work effectively with professional outsourced sales agencies.

The trip, which includes round-trip airfare from Los Angeles, in-country air and ground transportation, matchmaking sessions, sightseeing and most meals, costs $3,500.

MANA associate members looking for Chinese partners will be welcome as will agents from MANA sister, industry-specific associations. The program is limited to the first 50 registrants.

For more information, please contact MANA at (877) 626-2776.
