The SME China Forum 2019


The leading national event supporting UK SMEs to trade with China

With the right advice and support, more and more companies are finding the Chinese market an accessible and successful destination for their goods and services. The SME China Forum is the UK's leading event for small and medium sized companies looking to trade with China.

China is the UK's 6th largest trading partner with over £22bn worth of UK goods sold to China every year, and £20bn invested by Chinese companies and entrepreneurs in the UK. Building on this growth, it is encouraging that President Xi recently reiterated his commitment to open up the Chinese market to foreign imports.

Topics will include: market entry strategies, due diligence, IP, the Chinese consumer, innovation and tech partnerships, and digital.

If you work in an SME and want to spend one day equipping yourself with the best tools to do business with China, attend the SME China Forum.
The next SME China Forum will take place in Leeds on 24 September at the Leeds College of Music.

6th SME Forum in Wolverhampton, June 2019

On Thursday last week, over 120 SME owners and representatives met in Wolverhampton to learn about the China opportunity and join our experts in going behind the headline stories to discuss China today, the opportunities that exist for SMEs and why the world’s second largest economy cannot be ignored. The day included panel discussions focused on practical advice for SMEs and insight on doing business in China. 
Participants heard from SMEs who have successfully entered the Chinese market, the lessons they have learnt along the way and how it has changed their businesses and affected their bottom line, as well as having access to 1:1 confidential clinics for advice on their specific China needs. Topics explored included partner selection and due diligence, top tips for success, the types of support available for SMEs and more.
