China’s Livestreaming Market: Depicting the New Normal | Live Webinar
COVID-19 and China
WIM Salon is a technology and innovation-focused event organized by EqualOcean.

The livestreaming has significantly developed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Its energy has mostly revived the Chinese consumer market in recent months as the epidemic has been well-contained. Believe it or not, livestreaming, as a new marketing format, has brought the Chinese consumer scene into a whole new era.

Since 2016, China’s content economy has been boosted by numerous digital phenomena; many multi-channel networks (MCNs) have emerged in this time. The new streaming platforms and the inundation of mobile devices and broadening web access are creating a rising force – one further helped by the pact between content providers and users. 

Even as the varied content is creating crowds of knowledge consumers and more online traffic, it is also changing the game of e-businesses and the platform economy.

In May, EqualOcean published a research report – ‘China’s Livestreaming Market: Depicting the New Normal’ – wherein we looked into the MCN emergence, dissected ‘livestreaming +’ business models and detailed six representative companies with in-depth reviews.

Join us on June 17 for a special webinar with e-commerce expert Nick Shu, Lauren Hallanan and Demi Ping, in a discussion moderated by EqualOcean analyst Mengyao Zhang, to learn more about China’s success secrets in livestreaming. To stay on top of the dynamic consumer market and business models for your strategic decision-making, hear what these informed and engaged experts have to say on the ongoing trend and the unbridled opportunities at play.
