The increasing opportunities to sell to China for Australian retail businesses are enormous. China not only maintains a strong GDP growth (7%) this year but also provides millions of discerning middle class consumers who embrace global brands that represent high quality, unique design and superior functionality. To Chinese consumers, Australia - as a well recognised national brand - is perceived as green, environmentally friendly and creative.

The Australian Lifestyle Expo (Shanghai) aims to help high quality Australian brands understand and enter the Chinese market. The Expo provides an ongoing platform which is reliable, transparent and effective, for Australian companies to enter a direct dialogue and trade with hundreds of Chinese professional buyers and investors and millions of Chinese consumers. For more details about the Expo, please visit

The upcoming information session will provide companies in the retail industry with an understanding of the Chinese economy and its consumers, and outline a range of opportunities in the market. We will also be sharing more information about the Australian Lifestyle Expo and the opportunities it presents.

Please note that early registration is essential as seats in this event are limited.
