A decade ago, the e-commerce industry in China was negligible, virtually non-existent, but fast forward to 2014 and the scenario has completely changed with China poised to overtake the US in revenue terms. 11/11 sales in China in 2013 grew by over 80% over the previous year more than tripling the amount of ‘Cyber Monday’ sales in the US.
With this rise in online sales is a clear trend towards transactions through mobile devices with China already leading the world on this front.
So who is driving this phenomenon? This 41.4 billion US dollar (2015 projections) question is what our speakers will address. Gain insight from the people in the know, those who have rolled up their sleeves and plunged deep in the bottomless potential that is the Chinese m-commerce industry.
Join us on Monday 21st April to find out. The answers could surprise you.
