China in London, Salford and Sheffield
Last year’s successful pilot Chinese children’s media mission to the UK is being backed again by UKTI. 10 companies in the broadcast, production, animation and interactive sectors – all major players in the Chinese media market, are being invited to a week-long exploration of the UK kids’ media scene. The companies will include state broadcasting giant CCTV who are enthusiastic to return after last year’s successful visit.
The group will be looking for content partnerships, co-production opportunities, formats, acquisitions and services.
This year CMC will be organising the entire mission for UKTI, with events in London on the 2nd July, Salford on the 3rd and of course the Chinese team and a range of UKTI advisors from other territories will be based in the HUBs in Sheffield on the 4th and 5th July.
Time to look East and think about that international expansion plan?
We’ll let you know as soon as opportunities to showcase your services or projects become available and there’ll be a bookings system for one-to-one meetings, PLUS a unique “Meet the Commissioners – China” session at CMC.
And if you’re looking for informal chances to get your message across – you might consider sponsoring a dinner table at one of the evening events we are planning for the delegation.
Watch this space for further news as the delegation plans come together.
