China is steaming ahead to become the world's largest economy and the internet represents a significant driver.

The Chinese internet economy represents more than 800 million users in 2018[1] 170 billion in revenue in 2016[2] and is set to contribute up to 22% to China’s productivity growth by 2025[3]. Digital now underpins business across all sectors in China.

As more and more companies pursue China and Asia-growth strategies, a real opportunity has emerged for digital agencies to support international B2B and B2C brands expanding into Asia as well as looking into growing their own agencies further in the region.

  • Dynamics of the Asian marketplace, including tech & marketing trends
  • Practical steps to launch/ grow your and your customers’ brands digitally
  • Ins & outs to hosting websites including license requirements
