The Past Year HERE!

As 2018 is coming to an end, it’s time to look back and savor the fun times we’ve all had and the achievements we have accomplished during this fruitful year. After more than 12 years of successful operation, this was the year that defined the new HERE! brand as a mature media and marketing company, continuing to thrive and grow. We’ve expanded our service scope into areas of the market that allow us to demonstrate our strengths in the best possible ways and better serve both our followers and clients.

What new things did you experience during 2018? We’ve had many firsts this year, and that is always something to celebrate. In January, we held DG’s first international Executives Party during which we revealed our plans for the year and provided the perfect platform for executives, both foreigners and locals, to network with each other. Similarly, we launched the HERE! Internship Program, presenting the opportunity for English-speaking university students to join our team and by doing so, experience a multicultural environment by collaborating with people from all over the globe, gather new skills from various departments, and embrace a goal-oriented attitude—giving them the edge over their peers. We’ve had 14 interns so far and most of them graduated from our program successfully!

Springtime came with our first sports league including four teams participating in our DG Ultimate Frisbee league, and currently we’re approaching the finale of the 2nd fall league that featured six teams. The league certainly brought with it new levels of camaraderie and playfulness.

In May, we launched our child development department, HERE! Coaching, with the DG Ultimate Youth Academy. Our Outdoors department saw the inception of the rapidly-growing HERE! Hiking club, featuring a monthly group hike as a way to socialise while being active in our beloved city.

Last but not least, the party never stops in Dongguan! We have continued to bring you fun, thrills and cultural activities via our sub-brand, PartyHERE!, as one of the industry’s leaders here, with events such as our Stand-Up Comedy nights, Rooftop Pool Party at Hard Rock Hotel SZ, Expat Kids’ Supermodel Competition, DG Craft Beer Festival, the groundbreaking 33 Ghost Town—the biggest Halloween Festival the city has ever seen—and a few Christmas events to bring the magic to you this festive season.

As always, our ever-growing team continues to strive for fresh ways to deliver a better quality lifestyle to our community, so watch this space for what’s around the corner!

Happy holidays and thank you for an eventful 2018!
