Our purpose is to enable international creative industries of all sizes to maximise the impact of their work in China. We do this as a united and influential force — advocating for fairer market conditions, delivering essential industry knowledge, mentoring and training businesses, and enabling the best creative talent to enter our firms.
We are proud to present the Creative Industries & Marketing Directory China 2023. Another thirty international agencies have recently joined the Directory which now comprises 130 of the best international creative and marketing firms from all over China.
Widely distributed, the Creative Industries & Marketing Directory is a much needed tool for marketing teams, brand managers, event organisers and business executives who wish to connect the best international agencies and talent operating in China today.
