Wavelength China 

China is building the future. Our new leadership programme goes to some of China’s most pioneering businesses to learn what they are doing and how they are doing it.

Why China?

China has grown into a global powerhouse at the forefront of new business models and technologies.

Once viewed as the ‘world’s factory’ China has developed and embraced new business models and leads the charge globally in terms of tech innovation, including the deployment of AI, big data, robotics, machine learning, self-driving vehicles, new retail, new banking and much more.

Wavelength China 2020

Wavelength China 2020 will take place 4th - 13th November and we will return to Chinese e-commerce powerhouse, Alibaba. We will go inside their ‘future retail’ Hema Supermarkets, stay in their Flyzoo hotel where robots deliver room service and make cocktails, visit their $150bn fintech Ant Financial and explore AI's unlimited potential to revolutionise your business.

For insights into the technologies and business models that will shape and define the future business look no further than Wavelength China 2020.
