Digital Missions are a series of trade missions organised by Chinwag.
Over the past 6 years, 12 missions have helped over 220 companies expand internationally, understand foreign markets, attract investment, find partners and develop business relationships.
This Digital Mission to China (Shenzhen Maker Faire), 4-11 Apr 2014, brings together the UK’s leading ‘makers’ - creative technologists and entrepreneurs combining 3D printing, Internet of Things, open source software and crowdfunding to revolutionise manufacturing - on a specially designed week-long trip centered around the Shenzhen Maker Faire.
The trip includes market briefing, company visits, networking events and access to the UK stand at the Maker Faire. Travel grants for qualifying SMEs are available from UK Trade & Investment.
Chinwag’s Digital Mission 2014 included an exciting programme of tailor made events, workshops and meetings, designed around you and your business’s needs.
