British Business Awards 2018

In what is the 10th year of this biannual event, The British Chamber of Commerce in China is excited to be hosting the British Business Awards 2018 in Beijing. The awards are a fantastic opportunity to promote British businesses, compete against the best that Britain has to offer and celebrate all that is great about British business in China. We encourage all British brands in China and Chinese companies in Britain to enter the awards, vote on the great success stories and join us at the Gala Dinner in November.

Barry Piper Chief Operating Officer, Asia Pacific, Faithful+Gould
The 6th British Business Awards are a prestigious endorsement of British success in delivering projects, initiatives, products or other achievements, and through important social contributions and commitment to community, ethical behaviour and environmental sustainability. I encourage you to put yourself in the running to win a British Business Award – the ultimate seal of approval for your business creating publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened credibility and a subject to talk about with your clients for many years to come!
Barbara Woodward Her Majestys Ambassador to the Peoples Republic of China
I am delighted to be a Patron for the 2016 British Business Awards. Following the visit of President Xi Jinping to the UK last October, we have the potential to build a genuinely golden era in relations between China and the UK. British business will be at the heart – helping to power the UK’s own growth by seizing the opportunities here, of course, but also working with China to upgrade its economic model. British innovation and creativity. British brands and professional expertise. British excellence in education and science, creating tens of thousands of new Chinese “ambassadors” for the UK every year. British openness to Chinese investment. We have a huge amount to celebrate. These awards do exactly that.
