The Manitoba Chinese Business Gala

is an elegant affair that celebrates the Chinese New Year and highlights the remarkable efforts of businesses and entrepreneurs in our province’s Chinese community. MCBG 2018 will welcome more than 300 guests from all over Manitoba, making this an excellent opportunity to engage the local Chinese community and learn about many aspects of the Chinese economy.

We will purposely assign the seating to facilitate East-West exchanges. Apart from corporate tables, we will situate Chinese entrepreneurs with local Manitoban businesses of the same industry at the same table to maximize networking efficiencies. Are you looking to grow your business, form new partnerships or simply know more about the local Chinese community in Winnipeg? Then you won’t want to miss MCBG!
