ACBC Vic: New Year Naming Conventions – What the Research Says

22 Nov 2022

Using in-depth community research, involving multiple diaspora communities, learn the correct naming conventions during the Spring Festival period.

The Spring Festival Golden Week Holiday, also known as the Chinese New Year, Spring Festival, or the Lunar New Year, refers to the weeks of celebration around the new year and the arrival of Spring.

The festival is one of the most important occasions not only in the Chinese calendar, but for other Asian cultures as well. How businesses refer to this celebratory period holds great significance to the large and diverse diaspora community in Australia.

Isabel Zhang, General Manager, Cross-Cultural Insights at Bastion Insights has led extensive research amongst the community about the naming conventions. During this one-hour briefing, Isabel Zhang will talk us through the findings of her research and lead us to get a better understanding of New Year Naming Conventions.
