For people who want to know more about mobile internet in China, perhaps, they should attend the conference organized by Great Wall Club in the coming April. http://gmic.greatwallclub.com/
I attended the event last year and found it very useful for making contacts and understanding the overall industry landscape. I started my own study of the mobile internet in China afterwards.
This year the theme is “Asia to Global”. How mobile internet trends & technologies, once only common within Asia, are spreading to various regions around the globe.
Every major figurehead in the mobile internet world is going to be there. Confirmed speakers include Pony Ma, CEO of Tencent, Charles Chao, CEO of Sina.com, Joe Chen, CEO of Renren.com, Bill Huang, GM of China Mobile Research Institute, Richard Robinson, Co-founder & President of Youlu and Song Tao, CEO of SKY-MOBI. LEI Jun, a renowned angel investor who has backed UCweb and many successful mobile internet companies will be there, too.
There will also be a startup competition – mobile internet startups from around the world can show off their services. As usual, the event will be held in Beijing, in the China National Congress Center. And if you register in the next few days, you can still enjoy a 50% early bird discount.
For people don’t know the Great Wall Club yet, it is CEO member-based industry trade organization focusing on mobile Internet. Many of the speakers mentioned above are members of the club. And if you a CEO of a mobile company, perhaps you should consider joining them.
