FIPP/VDZ Digital China Tour
Shanghai , 20 - 23 October 2019
China is taking the lead in various areas in the world – politically, economically and military. But also in the digital world. Chinese coders compete at eye level with their American colleagues. Nowadays, China lists as many venture capitals as Silicon Valley. The result is noticeable: one third of the world's 262 Unicorns come from China. Facebook copies China's WeChat and not the other way around. It's high time for all of us to take a closer look at China's digital businesses in person.
To that end, VDZ & FIPP are organising the "Digital China Tour" from 20 - 23 October 2019. Our destination is the commercial capital Shanghai, location of several tycoons and pioneering businesses in the digital industry. The following highlights are planned: personal meetings with the experts of Alibaba and Tencent (WeChat) at their digital hubs and insights into the latest trends at the Shanghai Media Group and The Paper, the Chinese counterpart of the New York Times.
