  • Sharing their digital strategies to support the development of their business in China.
  • How online has complemented the offline business.
  • The launch of online e-commerce stores and expectations for these channels in terms of engagement with the customers.
  • The difference between digital marketing in China and Western markets.
  • How the online business has changed the role of retail strategies.
  • What has been learned from the COVID crisis in terms of balancing online and offline offers.
