Following on from the announcement last week that we had been shortlisted for an award at the Greater China Achievement in International Trade Awards 2010, we are thrilled to announce that, from a total of 14 entrants, B2B International was declared runner-up in the China Rising Star category.
Businesses, organisations and education institutions from all across the North West of England were honoured at the ceremony, organised by the Northwest Regional Development Agency and UKTI North West, and held on Friday 12th February 2010 at the Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays.
On receiving the accolade, Alaric Fairbanks, General Manager of B2B International in China, said: “We are delighted to receive recognition from our home region of North West England. The company sees this award as a reflection of the hard work and achievement in providing world class business-to-business market research, not just in China and Asia-Pacific but also around the world.”
Nick Hague, Managing Director at B2B International in the UK, added: “Establishing permanent operations in China three years ago was partly in response to demand from existing clients for high quality market research services covering mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, but at a strategic level was guided by recognition of the globalisation of the market research industry and its customers. Having a permanent presence in China and the wider Asia-Pacific market is seen as essential positioning internationally and is vital in gaining access to these growing markets – in particular to China as the world’s fastest growing large economy.”
