British Polo Day returns to China on 3rd September 2017
September 1, 2017
Having recently celebrated the 60th British Polo Day in Great Britain, the invitation only event is delighted to be back in China, before completing the year in Nihiwatu and India.
British Polo Day is an unparalleled platform celebrating the history and heritage of polo with a global community, bringing together the world’s top companies and key influencers. It provides a platform for business in emerging and growth markets, giving partners enviable access to international contacts.
China is a particularly important location on the British Polo Day calendar for a number of reasons. The UK is now home to more Chinese investment than any other European country and China is the UK’s sixth largest export destination. Post Brexit, the British government will be focused on signing a free trade agreement with the world’s largest retail market leading the ambitious and much talked about ” Belt and Road Initiative. ”
British luxury brands have a reputation for meticulous craftsmanship, heritage, and extraordinary aesthetic standards, which have captivated discerning Chinese consumers. Notable British brands successes in China include Jaguar Land Rover recently announcing it had opened its first overseas plant in China, Victoria Beckham opening her first store in Asia last year, and names such as Dyson and Burberry are much in demand.
The current title partner is RJI Capital, the strategic advisory and merchant banking firm with a premium track record in global transactions. Mr Ron Wahid, Chairman & CEO of RJI Capital observed ” RJI Capital celebrates its third year of partnership with British Polo Day in 2017. It has been a wonderful journey of discovering new synergies between our business and this unique international network of like-minded individuals founded upon a love of the sport of kings. ”
British Polo Day is a fast-growing, ambitious company, which partners with some of the World’s best companies, including RJI Capital, Chelsea Barracks, Royal Salute, Yachting Partners International (YPI), Vista Jet, Hackett, Charles Russell Speechlys, Justerini & Brooks, Clinova, Dr Harris, Taylor Morris, Barnard & Westwood, and True Luxury Travel.
The success of the British Polo Day has been largely down to word-of-mouth endorsement from many guests and supporters including key figures in government, the aristocracy, diplomats, fashion, art and popular culture.
In addition, British Polo Day have hosted members of 12 royal families, 100 independent billionaires and leaders in world innovation including Sir Richard Branson and Elon Musk. Over 20,000 guests have enjoyed British Polo Day in the last seven years, and British Polo Days have to-date raised over $2 million USD, from a standing start in 2011.
