2017 BritCham Guangdong Review | 广东英商会本年度精彩回顾

2017 has been another great year for BritCham featuring many highlights, from meeting with royalty, connecting businesses, inspiring women and supporting worth charities…here are just a few of the highlights from the BritCham team in 2017!


BritCham organised over 60 events and trainings throughout 2017. The majority of the events were held in Guangzhou and Shenzhen, but this year we’ve spread the events out to other cities as well like Dongguan and Foshan. BritCham will continue this trend in our future operations and try to have more events held in surrounding areas while focusing on these two main cities. 

Also in 2017, Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne visited China in July and several BritCham members were invited to a Reception with Her Royal Highness to celebrate the Queen's Birthday Party in Changsha. In November, members of the UK Parliament’s All Party Parliamentary China Group (APPCG) visited Guangzhou. BritCham’s new Executive Manager, Barry Kirkwood was joined by five BritCham members at an exclusive lunch with the MPs.

※ Flagship Events

•Women in Business Forum (March)


We have invited five women who are forerunners in different industries to share their perspectives and stories about how they use new technology and overturned existing traditional concepts to combat daily life and social problems. Through this forum, we hope to establish a platform for women to exchange and inspire each other, allowing them to find their true character and place in life. 


•Intellectual Property Protection Event (April)

Tom Duke, UK’s Intellectual property attaché to China, visited Guangzhou in April. During his visit, BritCham invited him to share us with the IP protection in China.

•BritCham Business Referrals (April)


BritCham Business Referral Events aim to help our members meet like-minded contacts and develop business opportunities. This year, BritCham held 4 Business Referrals, providing an unparalleled opportunity for our members to have communications with companies from different fields to boost further cooperations.

This British cultural event is organised by British Chamber of Commerce Guangdong annually. Numerous guests and booth vendors gathered together in the fantastic day, enjoying the amazing performances, tasting delicious traditional British food and beverages, and taking part in some fun games and activities. 


•BritCham Golf Tournament (June)


The Annual Golf Tournament has proven to not only be a gathering of international golfers but also an event that successfully promotes the British tradition of golf in South China.
