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.

2023 MANITOBA CHINESE BUSINESS GALA
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, learn 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.
