Opportunity for British Companies to be Official UK Government Partners at CIIE

Published on 2018-08-08

The China International Import Expo (CIIE) will be held from 5th to 10th November at the National Convention & Exhibition Center in Shanghai.

Businesses from over 100 countries and over 150,000 professional purchasers and senior government leaders are expected to attend the CIIE. Trade in goods and services will be represented with focus sectors including: Healthcare, Automotive, Food and Agriculture, Retail and Consumer, Service Sectors, and High-end Intelligent Equipment.

As ‘Country of Honour’, the UK has secured a national pavilion and will organise a delegation led by UK Ministers and a member of the Royal Family. DIT is looking to work with leading UK companies on the UK pavilion to showcase the best of British exports. The UK pavilion, maximising digital and virtual display technology, will run a creative programme of activities to showcase the strength of UK exports with a focus on innovation. 

Awarded the status “Official UK Government Partner” at CIIE, pavilion partners will not only gain massive brand exposure, but also receive account management support from DIT, and have priority access to host activities at the UK Pavilion such as pavilion tours for UK and Chinese government and business leaders, sector-specific trade promotion events, leadership seminars with UK and Chinese business leaders, business matching events and more.
