Registration has closed for this month's Talks at the Bell, and no walk-ins will be accepted. We look forward to seeing you at November's edition of the event!

Join us for our October edition of Talks at the Bell, the British Chamber's new monthly series of insightful panel discussions and events hosted at the British Embassy Beijing's on-site pub. This members-only event is an opportunity to hear more about sector insights, network with members of the Chamber and Embassy staff, and enjoy a drink at one of Beijing's oldest pubs!

This month, we'll be looking at trends in travel and tourism with an expert panel of speakers. As post-pandemic travel resumes and demand grows, how has international travel changed since 2020? How has UK-China travel changed in the last five years? And what does the tourism industry look like in Beijing and China right now – both for inbound visitors to China, as well as Chinese travel domestically and abroad? Join us for another exciting panel discussion, followed by drinks and networking.

Members from all companies and sectors are welcome to join us for this event.
