International SOS to Sponsor FORTUNE Global Forum in Beijing.

PHILADELPHIA -- International SOS is honored to sponsor the prestigious FORTUNE Global Forum, which will take place in Beijing May 16-18, 2005. The focus of the 2005 Forum will be the enormous business potential of China and its Asian neighbors, and the ways in which multinational firms can contribute to and benefit from this business growth in the decades ahead.

The FORTUNE Global Forum is an annual gathering of the chiefs of global business, heads of state, and leading thinkers to discuss the most pressing issues facing world business. The intent of the Forum is to create an opportunity for these leaders to share strategies and forge alliances that will help shape the future of global business. Participation is by invitation only and is limited to chairmen, CEO's, and presidents of major multinational corporations.

According to International SOS President and CEO Arnaud Vaissie, "As a multinational organization in the truest sense, International SOS appreciates and applauds the leadership FORTUNE exhibits in putting together this extraordinary forum. There is no doubt that the Asian market represents magnificent opportunity as well as significant challenges. This gathering offers a chance for the premier business and government organizations involved in the Asian market to build and strengthen relationships that will help create the Asian market of the future. We are pleased to sponsor this milestone event." International SOS has extensive and long-term experience in the Chinese market as a result of operating a 24-hour Alarm Center and an international medical clinic in Beijing, as well as medical clinics in Tianjin, Nanjing and Shenzen.

President Hu Jintao of the People's Republic of China will deliver the keynote address at the gala opening on the evening of May 16. The event offers an opportunity for global business leaders and regional political leaders to meet members of China's new government.

In addition to sponsoring the FORTUNE Global Forum, International SOS will provide medical support and assistance to Forum participants. International SOS will have medical teams on site at the host hotels as well as at the conference venue itself, and will also have an ambulance team on standby. Services will also be provided at the International SOS Beijing clinic.

International SOS joins ABB, Altria Group, Bang & Olufsen, Herman Miller, Johnnie Walker Blue Label, Land Rover, McKinsey & Company, Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide and the William Morris Agency as a Silver Sponsor of the Global Forum.
