World Economic Forum Inaugural Annual Meeting of The New Champions, also called Summer Davos is now taking place in Dalian, China. Although it is not an Internet/Mobile industry specific event, but I do feel it is a big event for Chinese Internet and I am hoping there will be some impact coming afterwards.
Check out who are there,
Jimmy Wales – Founder and Chair Emeritus of Wikia, will join the session ‘Harnessing Collective Intelligence: The Role of Online Communities’ together with Issac Mao, Founder and Partner of Social Brain Foundation
Martin Varsavsky – Chief Executive Officer of FON, will join the session ‘Disruptive Business Models’
Tariq Krim – Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Netvibes Ltd., will join the session ‘New Frontiers in Internet Technology’
