Hospitality & Leisure

Mission Statement

The focus group promotes the Hospitality and Leisure interests of both Shanghai and the UK by providing both a discussion platform on the issues and challenges related to these industries and also via networking opportunities.

The focus group examines industry trends and standards with a goal of enhancing Shanghai’s overall residential leisure and business travel experience.

We assist in setting standards and helping to improve a competitive advantage over other destinations in China.

The focus group offers an extra value for members representing the Hotels, Service Apartments, and Leisure Clubs that will allow them to fully benefit from their membership in the British Chamber.
