About

ORIENTED began in 1998 as an online network for international residents in Taiwan.  It quickly became the #1 English-language destination site there and was featured in the Taipei Times, Taiwan News, ICRT, Lonely Planet Guide, Eva Air’s in-flight magazine, and more.  Later, Happy Hours were introduced in Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei for face-to-face networking, a critical aspect of the Asian business culture.

To date, over 1,000 events have been held worldwide alongside media partners, MBA programs, trade associations, tech conferences, chambers of commerce, international career fairs, and community groups of all kinds. ORIENTED events consistently attract highly-educated, bilingual, upwardly-mobile professionals – all of which was accomplished with no marketing budget to speak of. It is a true testament to the power of a premium domain name.
