China - A Journey of Discovery
Opening of new Bentley showroom in Shenzhen, China.
It is predicted that the Chinese market is going to become the most important car market in the world in the next 10 years. This, coupled with the unprecedented growth in the Chinese economy and a rise in China’s entrepreneurs appetite for understated luxury, is seeing an increased demand for Bentley cars.
Since opening our own office in Beijing in 2005, Bentley has been able to support this rapidly growing market through a network of seven Chinese Dealerships in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Guanzhou, Hangzhou, Wuhan and Shenzhen.
Bentley Shenzhen opened its brand new showroom at the end of 2006 and is located at 2028 Shennan Road East in the busy commercial district of the city. The opening ceremony involved a day of events culminating in a cocktail party at the showroom attended by Andrew Smale, General Manager of Bentley Motors China, Clement Hui and Peter Mak from our importer and a number of VIP guests including Chinese movie stars Zhou Xun, Liu Mei and Sun Li.
Our next event in this exciting new market is the Shanghai Motor Show, which is now recognised as one of the major automotive exhibitions on the International Circuit. The show takes place from 20th to 28th April 2007, where we will be proud to unveil the Continental GTC for the first time in China.
