Bank employee Zhang Dapeng received an e-mailed invitation recently to the 10-year anniversary party for his university classmates at Beijing Technology and Business University.

However, to his surprise, the e-mail was not from his classmates or his teacher, but from a company that organizes classmate reunions.

"Having graduated 10 years ago, I have not seen or have lost contact with some of my classmates, and I'm looking forward to meeting them again," Zhang told the Global Times.

There are many people like Zhang. As well as reunions being a way for classmates to get connected again, it also offers a business opportunity.
