Sept 10 – The Expat Life Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner

China Expert International Ltd. and the FCGroup are delighted to invite you to the 3rd Annual ELAs (Expat Life Awards) Ceremony and Gala Dinner



The evening includes the Awards Ceremony, a chance to browse select vendors, live performances and a 5 course meal.

Beijing today is no longer a consumer hardship posting for expatriates.

The opposite, there is a wide and very diverse range of products and services available. In fact there is now so much choice that at times it is hard to know what to buy or which service provider to use.

The ELAs were designed so that the Expatriate community could show their support for their preferred vendors.

The winning vendor will be able to proudly confirm to new arrivals and old hands alike that they were awarded an ELA in recognition of the quality of their services.

The 2016 ELAs will be granted to 25 categories of service providers.

The winners were decided by an on-line voting process.

There was no cost involved in being nominated and it was open to any provider of goods or services that might be of interest to Beijing’s expatriate community.

The Expat Life Award Ceremony will be held on Saturday 10 September.

It will be held in the Capital Club Athletic Center, 3rd Floor Ballroom
Capital Mansion, 6 Xinyuan Nanlu,Chaoyang District, Beijing

中国北京朝阳区新源南路6号 京城大厦旁边的京城俱乐部3层
