    Showcase your business at the GREAT Festivals of Creativity in Asia

    Published On: 24 September 2014

    British SMEs, entrepreneurs and startups are being invited to submit their business success stories to PwC’s GREAT Challenge.

    The UK Government is running Festivals of Creativity in Hong Kong from 18 to 20 November 2014 and Shanghai from 3 to 5 March 2015. The Festivals are designed to help introduce British business into various markets and showcase the best of British technology, design, luxury, innovation, education and fashion over three days. They aim to inspire partnerships and explore investment and growth opportunities in key markets by connecting public and private sectors, big business with SMEs, and entrepreneurs with investors.

    GREAT is the UK Government’s most ambitious international marketing campaign aiming to deliver significant and long-term increases in trade, tourism, education and inward investment.

    PwC is the technology sponsor for the Festivals and is looking for creative business stories to take to the Hong Kong and Shanghai Festivals. It could be your business plan, an innovation, a new product, overseas expansion or simply a creative idea. Whatever it is, PwC wants to hear what’s GREAT about it.

    The most innovative stories will be short-listed and profiled in an interactive setting at the Festivals, where delegates will be able to provide the short-listed companies with feedback.  One company will also be given the chance to travel to Hong Kong or Shanghai and attend the Festival as PwC’s guest, to share their business story in person.

    Business stories explaining what makes your company GREAT should be sent here: www.pwc.co.uk/great

    The deadline for submitting stories is Friday 3 October.
