Bank of China

Business Matchmaking Event

  • The Challenge

    On August 13th, 2015, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond co-chaired the China-UK Strategic Dialogue in Beijing. They agreed to open a new chapter in business relations between the two countries.

    Our challenge was to create an engaging platform for Chinese businesses to network effectively with their UK counterparts, create meaningful relationships that translate into business. This event was sponsored by the department for UK Trade and Investment.

  • What we did

    Pumphouse created a plenary where delegates could be addressed by UK and Chinese ministers and to facilitate over 700 1-2-1 meetings, engaging translators and appropriate technology for each meeting. Simultaneous two-way translation was used at the plenary and headphone technology deployed throughout.

  • The Effects

    Key Chinese clients of the Bank have increased their trade with Britain, driving up its core revenue.
