Focus Groups


The British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai has Focus Groups comprising of various member companies across a range of business sectors. Representing a core group of professionals within their respective industries, focus group members share their expertise by identifying key issues of interest and selecting topics for events, as well as identifying potential speakers.

As an integral part of the Chamber, each focus group is led by a core group of individuals who meet a minimum of once every quarter to set an agenda for focus group activities. Participation on a focus group committee is voluntary and open to all members.

If you would like to gain a better understanding of the workings of the Focus Groups; or you have an idea to form a new Focus Group for your industry sector or business function, please refer to the Focus Group guidelines here.
