Cultural and Business Delegations

Whether you are a Chinese government official seeking economic development project success in UK, or a Chamber of Commerce representative from the UK wishing to connect with counterparts in China, CUK can assist with the logistical and cultural challenges of arranging the best meetings, appropriate transportation and accommodation, translators, and indeed the often challenging situation of visas for international travel.

It is important to stress that CUK is not a travel agent, nor do we have ambitions of being. However we do offer our clients a thoroughly bespoke service, utilising our extensive range of contacts in high-level government and the private sector to create a delegates’ trip that will help you achieve your company or governmental department’s objectives.

CUK can arrange your delegation and create itineraries carefully tailored to individual business and cultural needs. We are able to craft a full delegation support package to suit your requirements, facilitating, for example, introductions to trusted and genuine business and government contacts; helping with invite letters other paperwork and generally providing the professional expertise to ensure your visit is both constructive and enjoyable.

Case Study

CUK recently worked alongside the Chinese Central Government’s most trusted professor and senior advisor on the formation of clubs and associations within China. With China connecting more and more with western countries, the government has recognised private clubs and business associations as a positive influence on the development of China’s economic future.

Professor Wang and his delegation travelled to the UK to learn how various levels and structures of clubs and business associations work in this country.

Visits were arranged to the highly prestigious Athenaeum Club on Pall Mall, the Royal Society of Medicine, Oxford University, Somerset Cricket club, Royal Windermere Yacht Club, Bridgwater College, British School of Etiquette, a number of golf and country clubs, and various other institutes in England and Scotland.

CUK arranged the transport, meetings, visas, accommodation, food and drink, and familiarisation visits, enabling the GAC guests to get the most out of their UK trip

It is important that visitors have the opportunity to experience and understand the culture of their host country and CUK worked with GAC to ensure the group was introduced to key cultural sights and historic attractions. An element of sight-seeing amongst the busy programme resulted in a relaxed ambience amongst the delegates which helped make the trip a highly successful and profitable business expedition.

The GAC itinerary was full, with excellent business relationships forged that are now being fully utilised both ways. The Chinese have made invaluable contacts in this country with some promising partnerships, whilst UK clients have already started to reap the benefits of their introductions to Professor Wang’s extensive network of Private Clubs and Business Associations in China.
