From LED lights to Hearing aids, mobile games to robots, meet the Chinese buyers interested in sourcing products from Midlands Engine suppliers.

Everyone understands the significant potential offered by China, but for many the problem is deciding where to start. Run in partnership with the Department for International Trade in China, this free Midlands Engine Business Matchmaking event is designed to introduce the best of Midlands businesses to a selection of buyers from the Chinese province of Hunan.

There is great potential for UK firms to collaborate with Hunan firms and to enter the market with specialised services and innovative products, and this event offers you a unique chance to arrange 1:1 meetings with validated buyers.

Complete with networking opportunities, face to face contact with decision makers and talks from industry experts, this exclusive event will help you to build key relationships which may result in you securing new business.

About Hunan:

Hunan is a province of the People's Republic of China, located in the middle reaches of the Yangtze watershed in South Central China. With a population approaching 69 million residing in an area only slightly smaller than the UK, it is China's 7th most populous and the 10th most extensive province-level by area. The opportunities in Hunan are significant in a variety of sectors. With close ties with Lincoln, existing civil links have enabled the building of a business to business programme.
