Our concept is to celebrate the arrival of the first Americans in Shanghai during the early 1900s. Many of the adventurous men and women who undertook this long voyage did so without any certainties or even a ticket back home - just a healthy ambition and dreams of a prosperous future.
We want to capture the buzzing atmosphere of a city when it was full of new aspirations, commerce, enterprise and ideas emanating from newly disembarked cultures.
Our event draws inspiration from the idea of a port, a place where a rich tapestry of people, business and goods come and go. An exchange that is still alive nowadays.
During the event we will highlight inventions, enterprises, musical styles and aesthetics from 1915 to 2015 - a suitably epic way to celebrate the American Chamber of Commerce’s one hundred years in Shanghai.
