Why enter the Awards?

The British Business Awards are a great platform for businesses of all sizes across all sectors to stand out against competitors. Success in the British Business Awards brings acclaim to your organisation and raises the profile of your activities in China and beyond. If you are doing something exceptional in China, we encourage you to enter.

Entering the Awards is an excellent way to:

  • Celebrate your successes and achievements in front of the entire China-based British business community;
  • Pitch yourself against the best British companies and organisations operating in China;
  • Gain publicity in British and Chinese media: being selected as a finalist is a great way to generate headline-grabbing news about what you do across China and the UK;
  • Stand out from the crowd: what better way to demonstrate how good your business to past, present and future clients than by winning a national award supported by the leading UK business, trade and investment organisations in China?
