Bath firms invited to end-of-summer networking event to find out about doing business in China

August 10, 2022

A regional organisation that helps businesses forge links with China is to host its first event for firms from Bath and Wiltshire.

The Bristol & West of England China Bureau was launched in 1998 and has since grown to be the region’s strongest twinning network to support businesses and education organisations while also promoting a shared understanding of Chinese culture. 

While it has staged many events in Bristol for businesses interested in developing or strengthening links with China – ranging from advice sessions to informal networking – its first gathering for Bath and Wiltshire firms takes place on September 1. 

Called the End of Summer Pow-wow and taking place in The Studio, Bath Spa University’s recently opened creative hub in Palace Yard Mews, it is also the first face-to-face networking event to be held by the bureau since Covid restrictions were lifted.

Bureau representative for Bath, Yang Ding, who runs Midsomer Norton-based New Silk Route Digital Marketing agency, said: “The theme for the evening will be creativity in tech, but it is a great opportunity for businesses in the area with a passion for technology or a link to China to meet with like-minded people. 

“Bristol, Bath and Wiltshire businesses in the technology sector will particularly benefit from attending this event.” 

The bureau is collaborating with a number of partners for the event, including members of the Bath Get Together, an informal professional networking group, and Tech West England Advocates.
