China Chat: China’s New Normal: Transforming Commerce

Our Event

December 02
We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with RedFern Digital to present the November series of China Chat.

Via this series, we will work with leading names in the fields of consumer and retail to take a deep dive into the China market journey: exploring aspects ranging from routes to market; to establishing a digital presence; building brand reputation and consumer engagement; and adjusting your market strategy to meet and respond to China’s latest consumer trends.​
In the final episode, we will consider the lasting impact of COVID-19 on China’s digital landscape and platforms, especially when it comes to commerce and the recent trends that have arisen.

Post COVID-19 e-commerce in China is in stark contrast to what it was at the end of last year. Consumption behaviour has evolved more dynamically than ever, with certain categories skyrocketing in growth, entirely new categories developing, with the elderly generation now more e-commerce savy than ever and most significantly, a major shift in the consumer journey from path to purchase in the boom of China’s live streaming era.
In this unique session, Ryan Molloy (CEO of RedFern Digital) will provide insights on the current state of China’s digital landscape, trends in consumption, current and expected high-growth categories: whilst also providing UK brands with practical advice on how to effectively approach digital in a post COVID-19 China.
