On December 7, the annual OCT Alliance of Planning & Design Conference, themed “Hello Tomorrow”, was held at the OCT OH Bay Center in Shenzhen, China. JRA’s Marketing & Business Development Associate for Asia-Pacific, Titi Cong, was invited to participate in the OCT Alliance conference as a member of the newest group of alliances and delivered a speech in the conference salon as a representative of the new members.
The OCT Alliance of Planning and Design (OCT Alliance) was formed by leading Chinese developer and attractions operator, OCT Group Co., Ltd. The OCT Alliance aims to “lead innovation” and “connect global wisdom” and its mission is to build “a high-end academic platform for cross-border integration and the innovative business platform of OCT group.”
More than 700 guests were invited to attend the OCT Alliance conference, including: Qiao Hengli, Vice Chairman of the Shenzhen Municipal Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and Director of the Municipal Construction and Public Works Administration; Yao Jun, General Manager and Deputy Party Secretary of OCT Group; Zhang Liyong, Member of the Standing Committee of the Party Committee and Deputy General Manager of OCT Group; Xu Chongguang, the director of the Institute of Innovation Research and chairman of OCT Planning and Planning Alliance, and Guan Shan, the secretary of the board of OCT Group.

At the conference, Zhao Yanjing, a double-appointed professor at the School of Architecture and Civil Engineering/School of Economics, Xiamen University, and Sou Fujimoto, a renowned next-generation Japanese architect, became the newly joined experts of the alliance. Twenty top global cross-border institutions, including JRA, were selected as members of the new batch of alliances, and Yao Jun, Zhang Liyong, and Xu Chongguang jointly issued certificates to them.
“Hello Tomorrow” is intended to break through industry boundaries and release the growth potential of cultural tourism through extensive and in-depth cross-border integration. Experts and industry elites from different countries, different backgrounds, and different fields have exchanged views and pooled their wisdom, broadening horizons, inspiring fresh ideas for managers of OCT Group’s various verticals, and providing the impetus for innovation and development.
This conference was reported on by many well-known Chinese media, such as China News Service, Xinhua News Agency, CCTV, Tiger Sniff, The Paper, Observer, Tencent News and Shenzhen Satellite TV. The number of media impressions exceeded 800,000, and the OCT Group and alliance brands were well-publicized.
“I’ve been visiting the OCT sites for as long as they have existed, and have enjoyed a very strong relationship with many of the OCT staff members throughout the years,” said Keith James, JRA Owner/CEO. “We look forward to having opportunities to work with them as they embark on the ambitious plans they have laid out in their ‘Hello Tomorrow’ strategy.”
