Join the Best Emerging Talent Festival 2022!

19 Jul 2022

The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai invites you to join the inaugural Best Emerging Talent (BET) Festival on 15 September 2022.

The Best Emerging Talent (BET) Festival is a celebration of emerging talent from the UK’s best Design and Advertising degree courses. It is a ticketed half-day event hosted online by the Creative Industries & Marketing Committee (CIM) of BritCham Shanghai.

The event aims to introduce fresh talent to international creative agencies and corporations in China and offer more exposure to UK Universities. Graduate portfolios are posted on our online platform for agencies and corporations to screen the best talent returning to China. Our jury of industry experts will also hand-pick their favourite portfolios to feature.


For Agencies & Corporations

All graduates are pre-screened for the festival and will present their work via our online platform. You will have access to the student presentations a few days before the 15 September event with exclusive early access given to BritCham member agencies.


For UK Universities

Your returning Chinese graduates will have the opportunity to showcase their work to the best international agencies in China. Your University can also gain more exposure in China by sponsoring the event and joining our panel discussions and talks.


For Returning Graduates

Design and Advertising graduates returning to China will be able to connect to the best international agencies recruiting talent. The festival aims to boost your early career opportunities as well as share industry advice and experience through panel discussion and talks.

Be part of it!
