About the Event:
In 2013, at USD 5.7 billion, China’s “Singles Day” (Nov 11th) generated 3 times more in revenue than America’s post-Thanksgiving, online shopping promotional day, now typically referred to as “Cyber Monday”. China’s B2C e-commerce industry already stands at USD 240 billion, or 16% of the global market. Is this a surprise when 55% of Chinese internet users have performed a mobile payment vs. only 19% of US users? This incredible pace in the growth of e-commerce will no doubt impact conventional retail and shopping malls. Long a focus of property investors and developers, where is the retail property market headed? Will luxury brands, needing brick and mortar shops for the branding experience, follow suit? How will this impact Hong Kong’s resilient and seeming mainland-dependent retail market? What opportunities present themselves for property investors and developers? In this event, our distinguished panel will discuss what’s ahead for Hong Kong and how the various interested parties can best navigate this changing landscape.

“in other countries, e-commerce is a way to shop, in China it is a lifestyle” – Jack Ma
