“China Connect’s Baidu Masterclass was a fabulous event that was of tremendous value for Baidu—and, we hope, for all the brands, the agencies, and the media outlets in attendance. It was great to have the time to really show potential customers and partners the full range of solutions that Baidu offers, and to better understand the needs of our French and other European customers. The charming and endlessly energetic Laure brought together a terrific group of people from all the right stakeholders. And the venues she chose for the events were absolutely wonderful!” Kaiser KUO

MASTERCLASS – CONFERENCE with China’s N°1 Search Engine




 As China becomes an ever more strategic growth zone, it’s mandatory to further decipher its proprietary digital ecosystem (blocked (or small) occidental players), and first entry door : online search. First worldwide search engine in Chinese language, Baidu is an essential platform for any player aiming to reach Chinese netizens (average 600M) and mobile users (average 420M).

What is Baidu, its vision of the internet ? What should occidental players know and understand about the Chinese Giant ? How can they take advantage of the platform to conquer +1,3 billion consumers (including mobile, new acquisitions on Video, etc.) ? How can Baidu protect Brands’ business ? How is the search market evolving ? How to optimize audience analysis in China ?
