|Merrill Gardens Selects Care Expo!
Merrill Gardens, the premier US based, privately owned senior living company has reached an agreement with Hampton Hoerter Healthcare to exhibit and present at Care Expo this November 17/18 in Shanghai. Merrill’s China office, established in Shanghai in 2010, currently has several existing projects throughout China including Sun City in Beijing, Tiandi Jiankangcheng in Shanghai and two additional projects with local partners, Maoyue Mountain in Harbin and Taiyanggu in Guiyang both of which are under construction. Merrill’s China advancement has been rapid; they are one of the fastest growing and most respected Western Senior living brands in the Mainland.
Cole Wright, head of Merrill’s China office, commented, "Our current business involvement in China is wide-ranging and includes consulting, management and operation, home care, and investing in companies and projects. We work with large state-owned companies and government entities, publicly listed real estate companies, small landowners and other local partners. We are focused on a lifestyle-marketed (and healthcare-supported) product aimed at a largely private pay customer base. We evaluate each market individually and we are working in tier one, two, and three cities in different provinces throughout China. The opportunities we see are all based on our ability to operate senior care communities and senior care services ourselves. Our long history in this space brings a wealth of expertise to China’s young growing market and is reflected in a growing awareness of our brand and the values it represents."
Care Expo is China’s largest multinational aged-care B2B trade show and conference. With its visitor/exhibitor profile consisting of c-level execs and procurement officials from Chinese insurance companies, hospitals, large land owners and developers, heads of associations and government representatives, Care Expo is the perfect venue for Merrill to market and expand their business. Bromme H. Cole, CEO of HHH and President of Care Expo remarked"Care Expo is the right platform for foreign businesses in the senior industry and we are very pleased to have Merrill Gardens as an exhibitor and presenter. Merrill’s operations here in China are solid and it is clear they have real staying power based on their achievements to date. With their investment in Care Expo as an exhibitor, we will help them reach new potential customers and expand their business."
