Manitoba Chinese Business Gala (MCBG) celebrates the Chinese Lunar New Year and highlights the remarkable efforts of businesses and entrepreneurs in our province’s Chinese community. It is the largest event of its kind in Manitoba, hosted by IDO Media.

IDO Media is a national, full-service marketing agency with its head office in Winnipeg. We specialize in cross-cultural marketing to the Chinese community in Canada. We represent 500+ Canadian businesses and have successfully connected our clients with Chinese consumers, generating new leads and revenues via effective campaigns.


This is IDO Media’s fifth year hosting the Manitoba Chinese Business Gala. After taking a two-year hiatus during the pandemic, MCBG 2023 will be a time of joyful celebration!

Join our community and celebrate the largest festival in China and witness unique performances and cuisine that portray cultural authenticity.

MCBG 2023 is a phenomenal opportunity to meet over 300 business leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and influential leaders of our local community. From attending cross-cultural specialists, you will learn about the potential of doing business with local and international Chinese markets while learning about how to effectively communicate your unique products, services and values to Chinese consumers.

Finally, MCBG 2023 will also be a time when we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of IDO Media. Together we want to highlight the remarkable efforts of businesses and entrepreneurs in our province’s rapidly growing Chinese community. Each year, we honour the award recipients by recognizing their outstanding achievement in work, dedication and excellence, innovative business achievements and community service.

Whether you are looking to grow your business to form new partnerships, lean about the local Chinese community in Winnipeg or simply want to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year – we wish to invite you as our valued guest to join us for the Fifth Manitoba Chinese Business Gala.
