“Big data in itself is not a solution. We have yet to see a solution for big data. Instead, it ought to be seen as an approach. It is the approach of managing various data sources for generating better insights. Coco Cola has huge amount of data and we have been collaborating with many leading technology solution providers to build up models doing data analytics to get deep customers insight. It’s necessary for marketers to know these digital marketing trends, as well as Programmatic Buying (RTB).”

“I think it is important to realize that it is impossible for any brand to rely only in opening a Weibo account as their major effort on their digital marketing strategy. A good digital marketing strategy is the wise use and selection of your digital tools, which means a right combination of social media networks, websites, and e-commerce channels. Different Fashion and Luxury brands are aware of this and as a result they combine their presence on Weibo, it could be with other digital tools or even with a mix between O2O strategies.” Said Keen Yim, Marketing & Communications for Buberry China.

“ I have been attending ad:tech for nearly a decade now. ad:tech is far and away the best digital marketing conference in Asia. It is a great place to network with industry thought leaders from China and abroad, learn about the emerging trends and best practices in digital marketing and have fun!  I usually only choose 1 or 2 digital conferences a year to attend, and ad tech is always at the top of the list. Hope this year’s ad:tech China will be an iconic event!” Shaun Rein, CEO for CRM Group expressed his expectations for this year’s ad:tech china.
