Get on the WeChat bandwagon

Facebook, Twitter, Google and many others may be off-limits but China is still experiencing a vibrant social media phenomenon. With the world’s largest number of internet users - the majority now through mobile devices - China has long had a flourishing indigenous social media scene. Many platforms most Westerners have never heard of have already come and gone, having ridden the wave of 100s-of-millions-plus users and then fallen into demise - like RenRen, Sina Weibo and many more.

Because now, when China sneezes maybe we all catch a cold?

Adsale, the show organisers, said the show has now outgrown the K fair in exhibitor count- claiming 3282 exhibitors from 40 countries, compared to 3215 at the last K in 2013.  Some 400 of these are first time exhibitors, mainly from China and across Asia.
