Scottish firms have been working hard over the year to forge business partnerships with China and deliver commercial success. The China-Scotland Business Awards provide an opportunity to recognise their innovation, effort and commitment and celebrate their outstanding export successes.
In doing so, the awards also serve to showcase the best Scotland has to offer
and to encourage other businesses and organisations to look to China as an opportunity
In 2020, the China-Scotland Business Awards will return for the third year running. The awards will be presented following the Chinese Burns Supper
, a vibrant cultural event bringing together Chinese and Scottish traditions, which is returning for its seventh year in 2020. This year's Burns Night will fall on Chinese New Year
- making the fusion of these two celebrations more pertinent than ever.
Set against the stylish backdrop of the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow, on 30th January 2020, the event offers valuable networking opportunities, with the CBBC Board sitting in Glasgow the following day, and a plethora of contenders for the Business Awards set to attend.
CBBC and longstanding Event Partner, the Confucius Institute at the University of Glasgow, are excited to announce a special collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
, who are set to deliver a first class line-up of entertainment for our guests, drawing upon their much coveted jazz department.
We are proud to announce that this year's awards will be in partnership with Scottish Development International and Scottish Enterprise, with sponsorship already confirmed from Huawei, Bank of China (UK) Limited and Heriot-Watt’s Scottish Confucius Institute for Business and Communication.
