The SME China Forum 2019

The leading national event supporting UK SMEs to trade with China.

Event Information

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

 - 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.
