Chopsticks Events

We have been welcoming guests to our China-related events since the start of China's global rise in 1993. Consequently our network is built upon face:face meetings and trusted relationships.


Our members want to understand how to do business in China and how to do business in the UK. We deliver on that need by sharing insight from leading experts and peers, generating debate and discussion, sharing insight into Chinese and British culture. We run various speaker events and debates adopting different styles to meet specific aims and suit diverse audiences. From our regular dinner-speaker events to round-table, intimate discussions for senior executives on relevant trends and current affairs to high-profile networking conferences, we offer something for every personal preference and budget. We partner with brands eager to inform an audience about the rapid changes in China that effect trade and geo-politics or who wish to reach a specific target audience.
