Overview

China is already a trailblazer when it comes to blurring lines between social media, search and e-commerce, with social platforms like Tencent integrating seamless payment and shopping functions, all inside one walled garden and Alibaba’s “New Retail” vision, which promises not just to remake shopping inside the country, but to leapfrog China ahead of the U.S. and Europe in terms of retail innovation. 

Any company that wants to succeed in China must pick either as their primary, although not exclusive, platform for tapping into the wallet of the Chinese consumer. 

In collaboration with NTUC U Associate, e2i and JustCo, this lunch briefing will cover future trends of retail and the impact of Tencent and Alibaba on the retail industry in China and the rest of the world. 

Key takeaways:
·       Overview of Alibaba’s New Retail, JD’s Unbounded Retail and Tencent’s Smart Retail
·       The trends you can’t miss: retail as entertainment, unified channel, gamification
·       The future is now: pop-up stores, LST retail integrated, merging social media & retail
