News: SCR companies to show their metal in China


Sheffield City Region companies are set to attend one of the world's biggest steel exhibitions in September as part of an initiative supported by the region's Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

After a successful regional mission to the event in 2012, ConnectChina and The Expo People are organising a regional pavilion at CISSIE 2014 in Shanghai. Taking place on September 18 - 21, the China International Special Steel Industry Exhibition is the special steel industry's unique biennial trade show and exposition. Bringing together industry professionals, it also includes a technology conference showcasing advancements in all phases of steelmaking.

With backing from Rotherham Youth Enterprise, The Expo People is based in RiDO's Moorgate Crofts business centre in Rotherham and has been set up by international event specialist, Paul Tomes who has worked with events organisers around the world to promote events from Morocco to Abu Dhabi and across Europe.

ConnectChina provides a range of services to facilitate businesses and organisations to develop trade and investment with China.

Speaking about the event in 2012, Joanna Lavan of ConnectChina said: "This exhibition open doors to opportunities with some of the largest steel companies in China and we are keen to keep the relationships thriving."

The package means that companies can exhibit at the event for as little as £1,600.

Ellen Cutler, director of inward investment at Sheffield City Region LEP, said: "We continue to work hard to support companies from within the region to perform globally, particularly within emerging and growing markets such as China.

"We also put a lot of time and effort into promoting the region as an advanced manufacturing zone."

South Yorkshire pavilion exhibitors can also benefit from a partnership struck up between Emirates and the group organisers, offering exhibitors additional benefits including Skyward tier upgrade, bonus miles, airport lounge use and preferential fares.
