Jens Heithecker explained that CE China brings the successful concept of IFA to China and the pan-Asian market: “We bring together international brands, retailers from across Asia, consumers, and media representatives, to make CE China the most ef cient platform for building and extending business relations.”
Representing a long-term strategic partner of CE China, IDG Vice- President Orient Zhu stated: “IDG has been deeply rooted in China for more than 30 years. We hope that with the years, IDG can help CE China better localise, enter and integrate into the Chinese market. Driven by this initial intention, we organised the CE summit. We sincerely hope that during the conference, we can share new ideas, new concepts, and new technologies, to help us forecast trends and promote cooperation within the global consumer electronics industry.”
Alongside the CE Summit, CE China hosts a number of events. The IFA Retail University delivers deep first-hand insights for retail representatives on market trends and successful product presentations, and getting underway today, the E-Commerce Forum provides further knowledge on successful online marketing and sales.
