Local TeoChew Society springs into Horse Year to strengthen symbiotic prospects

VANCOUVER, Feb. 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Galloping full speed into the Year of the Horse, the Canada Chaoshan Business Association, in partnership with TeoChew member associations from across Canada, have officially unveiled plans for one of the most important and prestigious events to come to Vancouver - the 18th Convention of the TeoChew International Federation. The event, which will draw over 3000 delegates of TeoChew (also referred to as Chaozhao or Chiuchow) ethnicity from around the world, will be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre August 19-21, 2015.

The TeoChew population, now numbering over 50 million world-wide, originated from the Chaoshan region of eastern Guangdong province. The TeoChew dialect, along with its cuisine, performing arts and woodcraft, is world-renowned. The TeoChew people are also recognized for their hardworking ethic and keen business acumen.

"It is a great honour for our members and community to be the host of the 18th TeoChew International Convention next year," said Mr. Lam Siu-Ngai, Chairman of the Canada Chaoshan Business Association. "We look forward to showing off the beauty and economic sustainability of Vancouver to our extended Chaoshan Business Association members from all over the world, and hope that we can play a role in helping local businesses to expand their network globally."

The Canada Chaoshan Business Association was established in 2012, with the mandate to "expand and build the Sino-Canada commerce platform and facilitate trade relations internationally, united TeoChew people around the world." Famed Association members include the 25th Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable David Lam, and current Member of Parliament Dr. Alice Wong, amongst many successful entrepreneurs in the financial, development, energy, technology and education sectors.

In 2011, Mayor Gregor Robertson announced September 10 as "TeoChew Appreciation Day" in recognition of the contribution of the TeoChew people to Vancouver's history and community.

The 18th Convention of the TeoChew International Federation will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre from August 19-21, 2015. The TeoChew International Convention takes place biannually, and is a chance for members all over the world to get together and develop lasting relationships with each other as well as politicians and businesses of the host city. The three-day event will feature various industry seminars and networking receptions, allowing local businesses a rare opportunity to reach thousands of potential business partners from around the world in one place.

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
