Chinese New Year Business Networking and Awards

Tuesday 21 January 2020, 17:00 - 20:30
The Carriageworks, 3 Millennium Square, Leeds, England, LS2 3AD

A business networking event to celebrate Chinese New Year and demonstrate the scale and breadth of China-related activity across the Leeds City Region.

There will be networking, refreshments, entertainment and awards to celebrate the achievements of the previous year and mark the arrival of the Year of the Rat.

This event and awards will celebrate the efforts and achievements of various businesses and individuals who have contributed to the development of the region's links with China or helped to make the Leeds City Region more welcoming to Chinese visitors. This ranges from local businesses who have taken steps to better understand Chinese consumers, to exporters and investors who work with China. The previous year has seen the establishment of the Visit Leeds China Forum and the continuation of many strong business links between the Leeds City Region and China.

Find out more about the Leeds City Region China Business Awards, including how you can apply or make a nomination.

Organised by the LEP, Visit Leeds, and the Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds.
