China 2.0 Blogger Tour - Beijing Day 1

The China 2.0 Blogger Tour officially started off today in Beijing! After a comfy start with a visit to the impressive Summer Palace lead by David Wolf from Wolfgroup Asia we met up with Kaiser Kuo and Andrew Lih at an excellent Yunnan restaurant in Beijings "Silicon Valley" Zhong Guan Cun. There we had 2 parallel sessions on Internet censorship & Andrews upcoming Wikipedia book respectively. Right across the street was videosharing website Youku's office where we had our first company visit of the day. We afterwards got back on our China 2.0 Mobile to meet with B2B trading platform DHGate at there office (thanks also very much for providing us the space for the subsequent meeting). The highlight of the day clearly was a visit from Kaixin001s CTO & Business Development Manager who gave us an overview of Chinas currently most hyped SNS. The day ended with spicy Sichuan food at the VIP tech dinner, meeting up with old and new friends from the Chinese Internet & Marketing industry.

 

A big thanks again to our lead sponsor Edelman Digital and Adam Schokora without whom we wouldn't have been able to get this tour started!
