New innovation trends - how entertainment and shopping are becoming blended through livestreaming and e-commerce. Alibaba and PDD have drastically widened their products and starting to feel more like an entertainment company rather than e-commerce.
How digital is replacing certain offline behaviours (live streaming, e-commerce, video consultation) using examples from Alibaba, Tencent
Business model innovation – new infrastructure for home delivery; retail stores transforming their business to make store staff online sales staff.
How the recovery is going and what we can expect going forward in changes of consumer behaviours.
