Kelvin Chan, our managing partner here at East West attended The China Roadshow at the Shangri-la Hotel in Chengdu earlier this month.
This education event is organised by English UK and British Council China. Organisers, English UK, are the national association of accredited English language centres in the United Kingdom.
This event connects English UK members with large numbers of quality Chinese consultancies, education agents and local institutions in the cities of Beijing, Chengdu and Shenzhen.
The China Roadshow combines one-to-one business meetings with evening receptions, networking lunches and seminars. Kelvin was able to network with both Chinese representatives as well as a wide range of UK based English language schools who were over in attendance.
The highlight of the day focused around four key seminars.
These topics covered:
- Learning English at a further education college and how to offer variety, value & support,
- Reviews of the latest industry data,
- Guides and practices to safeguarding young learners in the UK,
- UK group visa briefings and analysis.
The China Roadshow is the only specialist UK ELT business networking event in China, the second largest source market for UK ELT.
