International Geographical Congress 2016 in Beijing

This is a long overdue post from attending the International Geographical Congress (IGC) 2016 conference, which was held in Beijing, China, back in August. The Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo) had a particularly successful series of sessions which also officially launched our research network. The newly elected FinGeo executive committee also held its first committee meeting (with some logging in via Skype) in a meeting room kindly provided by the School of Geography, Beijing Normal University.  All in all, a very roductive and enjoyable week with colleagues and friends from around the world.

Feeding thousands at the conference at lunch time. Impressive!
