Beijing today is no longer a consumer hardship posting for expatriates.
The opposite, there is a wide and very diverse range of products and services available. In fact there is now so much choice that at times it is hard to know what to buy or which service provider to use.
The ELAs have been designed so that the Expatriate community can show their support for their preferred vendors.
The winning vendor will be able to proudly confirm to new arrivals and old hands alike that they were awarded an ELA in recognition of the quality of their services.
The winners will be decided via on-line voting.
The FCGroup organizes networking events in Beijing every Tuesday, organizes monthly Daytrips and larger events once per Quarter.
The Founder of FCGroup, Colin Friedman, has been organizing events since the 1970's. The highlights have included Folk Music Festivals in Israel, a Chinese Language and Culture Exhibition in Beijing, bringing the East Meets West – End (that's London's West End) Musical to Beijing, Expat Services Expos in Beijing and, since March 2007, regular networking events in Beijing and of course the now well-known Netbonding "Escape Concrete Beijing" daytrips to the quiet and beautiful rural Beijing.
