While the Internet has revolutionized how we now operate as a global society, the sheer size and unique characteristics of China have made the influence here that much more amazing. While Internet in China has only captured a mere 30% of the population thus far, this already places China’s penetration numbers above the entire US population, and tens of thousands of first-time users join each day. Business and investment opportunities abound, and companies such as Tencent (creator of QQ), Baidu and Alibaba are leading the charge and earning strong profitability in the process. However, this promising market opportunity is also characterized by diverse dynamics and demographics, requiring a significant understanding of both the Chinese consumer and the Chinese internet space.
The China Internet Forum will gather over 400 senior-level professionals to exchange ideas with some of the most influential leaders and experts in the Chinese internet field. Attendees can expect to meet and build relationships with leading professionals in the industry from both Chinese and international start-ups, corporations, investment firms and professional service firms. Topics will cover the major trends influencing the development of the internet in China, focusing on business and investment opportunities. By attending The China Internet Conference, professionals will develop the business relationships and sophisticated understanding necessary to succeed in this vibrant and challenging space.
