Rise: Inside China

Join Crowd DNA Asia’s managing director Emma Gage at our next London Rise event, as we move from stereotypes to nuance in our five step guide to brand building in China, the market on every 2020 strategy...

Date: Sept 19

Time: 8.15-9am

Location: Crowd DNA, 5 Lux Building, 2-4 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6NU

China is an essential strategic pillar for most international brands. The opportunity is clear; it represents high value, the world’s biggest economy in terms of purchasing power, and a middle class emerging at scale. Everyone is rushing to get involved – but it’s not easy. Quick wins are rare, and the failures far outnumber the success stories.

What’s more, if you always think about China ‘vs the West’ (like many Western audiences tend to), the trends and movements often feel extreme and hard to empathise with. Information isn’t difficult to come by, but it’s tough to piece together and understand the everyday reality.  

So what are the new values shaping modern China, and what do they mean for international brands and businesses in search of new opportunities? 

Join us at our first Rise event after the summer hiatus as we help bridge this gap. Building on work conducted in categories such as apparel, finance and alcohol, we’ll bring a rich and tangible sense of China’s changing values; as well as mapping five cultural shifts relevant to Chinese audiences of all ages.
