Culture plays an important role in the people’s life in China. The more than 5000 years of history and traditions has shaped the people’ day to day life in China. Footprints from the past are seen in Chinese food culture,music, paintings and architecture. We had the opportunity to take part in- and organize several cultural events in China.
CEBDS can organize special events in China for European clients and for Chinese clients in Europe in the field of music, special TV reports, documentaries, meetings, congresses, seminars et cetera. We work with several national Chinese TV stations, like CCTV and have close contact with people within the ministry of Culture. In January 2015 ECF also signed a LOI of cooperation with the Ministry of Culture.
Here under some samples of our events:
