Jul 14 | From Zero to One – How Retail Businesses Enter China

July 14, 2020 / CanCham

Over the years, retailing in China has been one of the most dynamic and fast paced industries, which has passed through many different phases. Every year, thousands of retail brands are eager to enter the China market, with millions of stores launching on T-MALL and other platforms. With this high level of competition, and in an ever-changing landscape, a “How-To Market Entry Strategy” becomes every newcomer’s most prized touchstone.

In this session, Weijia will demystify start-up plans for global retail businesses wanting to gain a foothold in the promising China market. From an insider’s point of view, she’ll illustrate a roadmap from zero to one, describing how a global machine zig zags its way to a successful launch in China, including the pains and the gains, and most importantly, the lessons learnt.
