The 6th SME China Forum

The SME China Forum, now in it's 6th year is designed to be 'by SMEs for SMEs'. This event offers a broad range of practical support for any UK company new to China or expanding in the market.

The leading national event supporting UK SMEs to trade with China

The SME China Forum is the leading business event supporting UK small and medium sized enterprises to trade with China. With the right advice and support, more and more UK companies are finding the Chinese market a realistic and accessible market for their goods and services.

Exports to China reached more than £16.5 billion in 2017, an increase of 19.4% from 2016. China is now the 6th largest market for UK goods and 17th for services. 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:

Runway to China – strategies and tactics for a soft landing in China The Chinese Consumer – a new wave of consumers for UK products
Innovation and Tech Partnerships – China moving up the value chain Digital China – the e-commerce powerhouse

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 6th SME China Forum will take place in Heathrow (Radisson Blu Edwardian, Hayes UB3 5AW) - a hub connecting the M3, M4 and surrounding areas of Surrey, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Hampshire.
