Event description

Description

Join the Department for International Trade (DIT) for this Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission to Shanghai, China. If you are a business in the beverage sector this mission can help you gain customers in the Chinese market.

The visit will commence on Saturday 11th November 2017, travelling from Newcastle International Airport to Shanghai, arriving back in Newcastle on Sunday 19th November.

Delegates will participate in a group programme that will provide opportunities to network and meet with some of Shanghai’s leading companies and business multipliers. The mission will be attending the FHC China – China’s Global Food and Hospitality Expo and DIT will be providing additional events to bring together Chinese businesses with delegates. The visit programme will be flexible enough to allow delegates time to pursue their own programme of 1:1 appointments.

'We joined the Trade Mission to Copenhagen earlier this year. It gave us great insight into the local market and subsequently through contacts we were introduced to by DIT have established a trading partner in Denmark’
