Start 2018 on front foot at Chinese New Year Reception and Banquet

Business people looking to launch new ventures in China in 2018 are being urged to start the year on the front foot at the Chinese New Year Reception and Banquet organised once again by the Bristol & West of England China Bureau.

Described as a ‘must go’ event by Bureau Chief Executive Dianne Francombe, the guest list already includes Lord Mayor, Cllr Lesley Alexander as well as civic and business leaders.

Dianne said: “This is one of the genuine high spots of the city’s business calendar and we are anticipating enormous demand for tickets to help celebrate the Year of the Dog.

“This really is a must attend event for anyone with a China connection or wishing to develop one. This year we have a special east meets west theme as we continue to strengthen Bristol-China relations and develop more opportunities in the ‘golden era’ of friendship.”

Dianne said: “The Chinese New Year is the most celebrated festival in the Chinese calendar and provides a fantastic opportunity for some excellent networking and a fantastic meal.”

The event will provide the perfect vehicle for businesses to enjoy some cracking Chinese entertainment, including the traditional Lion Dance which is said to bring good luck and fortune.

It will help connect members of the Bristol Chinese community, West of England businesses who have already forged links with China, as well as people interested in making new contacts and enjoying Chinese Culture.

The Chinese New Year Banquet will be held on Thursday February 22, from 6-10.30pm at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Bristol City Centre. Come along and join us for an entertaining evening.
