Hi. I'd like to introduce Fine Fossils. We specialise in art and sculpture amongst other things, incorporating genuine fossils from around the world. We sell through interior designers who want to provide something very unusual and special for their clients.
I'm interested in broadening my contact base in this area and also looking to contact anyone who deals with larger art installations for public spaces. We can provide fossil fish murals 50 million years old or even dinosaur trackways.
Have a look at our site www.finefossils.com. Hope you like!

Own It presents: Making a name in China – a practical guide to marketing and expanding your design business to China

12th October 2009 - 18:00

Chinese Arts Centre,
Thomas St,
Manchester,
M4 1EU

Are you considering offering your services or launching a new product in China? It is a myth that only large companies can penetrate the Chinese market; small companies with knowledge of the market and business culture also have a good chance to succeed.

This event will give you practical advice on steps you should take to make a name for your business in China. Own-It's event will cover IP rights and contractual issues and will explain what you need to consider in terms of your target market, how you can establish your brand, and how you can handle subsequent communication and discussions with potential clients in China. Own It will talk about how you can protect your IP against counterfeiting, and ways to distribute, promote and sell your products in China.

China's trade relations with Britain are deepening. Britain invests more in China than in any other Asian country and recently helped China with the design and construction of major building projects for the Beijing Olympics, including the 'Bird's Nest' National Stadium, the city's new airport and the Olympic swimming pool. In return, China supports the British economy with more goods and investment than any other European country. Therefore, it seems natural that creative businesses in Britain are looking to China to find a manufacturer, sell their goods in the growing luxury consumer market or take advantage of China's interest in British entertainment.

Speakers include:

Liz Ward of Virtuoso Legal, an IP law firm that advises a wide range of clients in respect of commercialising and defending their ideas, brands and technology as well as e-commerce and IT related legal issues.

Stephen Beddoe, a successful artist and curator who developed, launched and lead Artquest at the University of the Arts London (UAL). He is also business development manager for Creative and Cultural Industries at UAL and has organised a number of culture and knowledge transfer exchanges in China. He will talk about the Creative Industries in China and his experience during his visits.

Alistair Sim from the board of directors at Manchester design and branding agency The Chase.

Liverpool will once again be hosting the best in independent contemporary design at the Liverpool Design Festival from 30 October to 8th November 2009.

The ten-day event, inaugurated by Design Initiative, highlights the city’s reputation as a centre for fashion and design and follows the success of Design Show Liverpool in 2008.

The cornerstone of the festival will be two exhibitions running from Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November 2009 at the Crypt Hall of the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.

The Eco Design Show will showcase environmentally friendly design and crafts including interior products, ceramics, furniture, lighting, jewellery and fashion accessories.

The Fashion Lab will allow trade buyers and public to see work by talented new designers. It provides an opportunity to spot up and coming trends and buy unique fashions unavailable in high street stores directly from the designers.

Accompanying the Fashion Lab is the Finishing School, a comprehensive programme of fashion master classes designed especially for recent graduates, new designers as well as more established designers. Through a series of workshops, seminars and one-to-ones with industry professionals over five days in September, the Finishing School aims to raise awareness and knowledge of what it takes to be successful within the fashion industry.

The Festival will also see the launch of Design Stars, a competition involving Liverpool schools to find some of the best local design talent in the11-to-16 age group.

The full programme of events also includes a lively range of debates and seminars.

Designers who wish to exhibit at either the Eco Design Show or the Fashion Lab have until 31st July 2009 to apply to take part. As well as these two exhibitions, if you are interested in the Finishing School masterclasses in September please go to Liverpool Design Festival to get further details and application forms.

Design Initiative is also inviting businesses from the Merseyside creative sector to become Festival Partners and organise their own events such as studio openings, exhibitions and workshops to run alongside the festival.

For revelant contact details and further information see www.liverpooldesignfestival.com which will be updated on an ongoing basis.

You can also follow the Festival on Twitter at Design Fest

The Liverpool Design Festival is run by Design Initiative with the support of Liverpool City Council and Arts Council, England - North West.
