I really don't have words to describe my gratitude to the organizers and sponsors of this event for this very generous and kind invitation.

Organizers: Mr. Zhang Zhao Ji and all at Yantai Polaris Holdings, and the Shandong Province Watch Association.

Sponsors: The China Horologe Association, the Yantai Municipal People's Government of Shandong Provincial Light Industry Association, the Shanghai Watch Industry Association, the Guangdong Watch Association, the Shenzhen Watch & Clock Association, the Fujian Province Watch Association, the Zhangzhou City Watch Industry Association, the Xiamen Watch Industry Association, and Yiwu Watch Industry Association.

Last year with Yantai Polaris Company president Mr. Zhang Zhao Ji and Li Wei at the executive boardroom of Yantai Polaris.

...and again at the China Watch and Clock fair in Shenzhen 2014 (the t-shirts Li Wei and I are wearing promote the 100th Anniversary):

No idea what the invite says; but you are obviously well respected by the Chinese watch community! Hope you will be able to attend.

Hi Conjurer, B.L.:

I will be attending. I had already booked a hotel there for the event, but I was informed today that my accommodations overnights on the 9th and 10th have already been attended to, taken care of by the organizers and sponsors. I'll be staying, instead of where I'd booked, at the 5-star Wanda Vista Yantai, which is also the location for many of the day's events:

Yup. That was about exactly my response, too. :shock:

Thanks all! I'm constantly amazed by my life these past few years, and there's none of this I take for granted. As always, I'll do my level best to share everything I can.
