Content I was invited to attend a working reception for China Now, which was held in the esteemed Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, in the presence of HRH The Duke Of York, KG, KCVO. The event was chaired by David (Shanghai) Tang, with Simon Heale who is the Chief Executive of China Now, and William Ong, who founded The Pearl Awards.

China Now

For those that don't know, China Now will apparently be the most important festival about contemporary China that has ever been staged in the UK. It will take place in the first half of 2008, in the run up to the Beijing Olympics and will encompass, by the sounds of it, anything and everything.

The point of the reception was to get attendees to contribute and participate in the festival.
