Parr Street studios to hold international Chinese business networking event
Creative Industries in China: Q&A hosted by UKTI and Liverpool Vision
Date: 20th July 2011
Venue: Studio 2, Parr Street Studios
Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
China’s staggering ongoing development has catapulted the nation forward economically. Specifically, the past decade has seen dramatic developments for the creative sector, and as the economy continues to grow, the development of China’s cultural and creative industry calls for more co-operation with overseas companies.
Large cities such as Shanghai are implementing strategies to promote the development of creative industries; aiming to build itself as a world leading ‘creative centre’ within 20 years. China regards the UK as a global centre of excellence and there is a real eagerness from Chinese companies to work with UK businesses to help it realise its potential in this area.
Following on from the highly successful launch of Vision’s China Business Network, Liverpool Vision and Liverpool City Council are planning a sector focused trade mission for Liverpool’s Creative and Digital industries to run in parallel with a UKTI Market Visit planned for 15th – 22nd October 2011.
On 20th July, Philomena Chen, Head of Asia Pacific Development for UKTI (Northwest) will share more information about the exciting market opportunities in China as well details of how to take part in the Liverpool Creative and Digital trade mission. Philomena will also be joined by Creative and Digital business advisor, David Parrish, who will share his experience of living and working in Shanghai.
If you’re serious about developing trade links with China this is a must attend event.
Places are limited.
