Event Details

Please join us for a FBCS luncheon seminar with one of the foremost experts of the Chinese digital marketing landscape – Mark Tanner.

China’s vast opportunities have attracted brands from every corner of China and the globe, creating one of the most competitive and dynamic markets in the world. Those businesses who understand Chinese consumers, their customer journey and their emotional and rational buttons, are the most likely to succeed in China.  Many Nordic products and services meet the fundamental needs of Chinese consumers, but may fall short on making them relevant and accessible to Chinese consumers.  Mark will outline factors influencing the Chinese consumer in 2015 and how to best reach them.
