12:00 -14:30 noon,
08.08.08
Harbour City, 27-35 Berry Street, Chinatown, Liverpool L1 9DF

You Don’t have to be in Beijing to watch the Olympic Opening live!

“At lunchtime on Friday 8 August, the world will turn its eyes to the Olympic Stadium in Beijing for the spectacle and splendour of the Opening Ceremony. Millions of people worldwide will view this historic event, which marks the beginning of 16 days of world-class competition.” (BBC Sport).

This luncheon event is organised by ChinaLink for hundreds to share in this special celebration. Dr. Kegang Wu, Chief China Adviser for British Chambers of Commerce and Director of ChinaLink, said “This Olympics is of extra significance for those of us who are connected both with China and the UK because London will take over the Olympic torch from Beijing at the end.”

If you are disappointed about not being able to be in Beijing, why don’t you join us at this specially organised luncheon to celebrate?

If you have been looking for a unique event to entertain your clients or staff, what can be more special than to invite your guests on such a memorable occasion?

If you like Chinese culture or share an interest in the local Chinese community, this is the opportunity to rub shoulders with the locals at the heart of Liverpool Chinatown.

If you are ChinaLink clients who have been doing business with China, what better to do than coming to toast ‘Gan Bei’ for your business success?

If you are just starting to put China on your business agenda, you won’t find a better crowd to network with at the lunch.

If you are Chinese businessmen, officers, and students visiting the UK or British Chinese, you will be proud to share the moment simultaneously with the 1.3 billion Chinese in China who will be also watching live on TV.

The cost of the event, including drink at arrival and a three course Chinese lunch is £35.25 per head (or £30 concession) inclusive of VAT. (Cheque to be made payable to Liverpool Chamber of Commerce), or a table of 10 at £300 plus VAT.  We anticipate this to be a popular event.

(Car parking: free customer car park at the rooftop of the restaurant, access via Knight Street)

Programme:

·12:00 Network & China market updates, invited guests including the Chinese Consul General, Mr. Jianzhong Gong
·13:00 Watch BBC One live coverage of the opening ceremony on 50″ TVs
·13:08 Join the celebration ( 08:08 pm Beijing time)

39artday-logo-100.gifDo you love art? Of course you do. Liverpool Chamber can’t get enough of the stuff, that’s for sure. And let’s face it, in 2008 it is actually compulsory to love art, so get your gallery-going shoes out for this weekend’s Thank You Art extravaganza:

39 ART WEEKEND (thank you art weekend) 2008
Dates: Sat 8 & Sun 9 March, 2008

39 Art Weekend in Liverpool is a special weekend to appreciate, promote and otherwise positively engage ourselves in contemporary art.

Enjoy a gallery crawl, celebrate art & receive special offers!

Originally 39 Art Day was initiated by a Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan. In Japanese, “thank you” rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), as there is no “th” sound and the Japanese people tend to pronounce “th” as “s.” Thus, the Date for 39 Art Day on March 9 and now it is celebrated worlwide! See www.39art.com for more detail.

Confirmed art venues and organisations include Artinliverpool.com, Artfinder’s Gallery, Bluecoat Display Centre, Dot-art, Editions, Eggspace, FACT bookshop, Gallery4allarts, Gostins Gallery, Liverpoolgallery.com, New Bright Art, Pete Carr, Red Dot Exhibitions and View Two Gallery.

UPDATE is an information sharing opportunity for exhibitions, projects and events planned to take place during Liverpool Biennial 2008. Artists, curators, organisers and galleries will introduce their programme in brief pitches, followed by an informal drink and the opportunity to make new contacts and explore possibilities for collaboration.

If you have plans for Liverpool Biennial 2008 we would love to hear from you, and if you are interested in meeting artists and curators working in Liverpool, we would love to see you there. Since 2004 UPDATE events have offered an important opportunity for the visual art community to make connections in the city, and have provided a springboard for new projects and working relationships.

Even if your preparations are still in progress, your contribution and presence would be greatly valued.
