• Just a few of the folks you'll meet in China...

  • OVERVIEW

    It's becoming clear that the emergence of what writer Fareed Zakaria calls the "Post-American World" is the biggest story of our time. Even an occasional visitor to China can see that a Copernican revolution is under way, where virtually every field, from coal to contemporary art, will be affected by the rise of China and the rest of the non-Western world.

    Visionary business, technology and media leaders are recognizing this change, seeking to understand this revolution, and starting to factor China into their future plans. However, for leaders that are not living and working in China full-time, it is extremely difficult to keep up with the pace of change in China where today's knowledge can be rendered obsolete in less than a year.

    Led by The China Business Network and co-organized by Web2Asia and CNReviews, the inaugural China 2.0 Tour is sponsored by Edelman Digital China and represents a unique opportunity for companies and individuals to gain a deeper understanding of China. Unlike a typical business conference or large trade delegation, we seek to go "one-level deeper" by creating a series of small-scale, exclusive meetups where people can share more openly about their business successes and challenges, and provide a deeper view into the nature of building a successful venture in China. We also are taking an interdisciplinary approach by looking at social media, clean technology, gaming, wireless, and other areas where trends in China will affect markets around the world.

    We also seek to provide informal opportunities to go off-message and off-the-record, so that long-lasting relationships can be built that will be a foundation for a sustained ability by tour participants to keep up with future changes in China.
