Kai von Pahlen, a lawyer at DAC Beachcroft, has launched a new branch of the British Chamber of Commerce in Germany (BCCG) at an event held at the international firm’s Bristol office.
German-born Kai, a litigation lawyer, has been meeting with other Bristol professionals, as well as Business West (which includes the Chambers of Commerce for both Bristol and Bath), UK Trade & Industry (UKTI) and the Bristol Hannover Council (which represents one of the oldest twinnings between Britain and Germany), with a view to establishing a local branch of BCCG in Bristol, to promote British-German trade. The branch will cover the entire South West, with Bristol serving as a hub.
The official launch of BCCG in Bristol took place on 18 April 2016, in the presence of a host of local dignitaries and distinguished professionals and entrepreneurs. Those included HM Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Mary Prior, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Bristol Councillor Alastair Watson, James Durie (Chief Executive at Bristol Chamber & Initiative at Business West), Dr Ann Kennard (Chair of the Bristol Hannover Council) and Mr Tim Illston (Honorary Consul for Germany). Even the Director of BCCG, Mr Andreas Meyer-Schwickerath, flew in from Berlin to attend the launch.
Commenting on the launch, Kai said: “Trading with Germany is a significant part of the British economy so we think it’s important for businesses and professionals in Bristol to benefit from the wealth of experience that BCCG has to offer.”
The official launch of the BCCG in the South West of England, will take place on 18 April 2016, from 5pm to 7pm. We will give practical advice on trading with Germany and share the stories of businesses in the South West who have successfully sold their products/services on the German market. If you’d like to attend and have not registered yet, you can register here.
In July 2016, Hannover (Bristol’s twin city) will host its annual big Marksmen Fun Fair (from July 1st until July 10th). It is the largest Marksmen fun fair in Germany, and maybe even world wide – full of music, full of tradition and lots of fun.
This year, as it is Hannover’s 775th birthday, the city would not like to give businesses the opportunity to present local food from your town and country, without even having to pay the usual stand fee.
If you know someone who might be interested in this opportunity, please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org), we will then connect you with the team of the Marksmen Fun Fair. If you’re interested, please contact us by mid April.
