Beijing, China (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
ad:tech conference, the world's largest interactive marketing event, will be staged in Beijing on October 16-17 at the China World Hotel, China. Built on resounding success from previous two ad:tech events in Shanghai, ad:tech Beijing is expected to attract more than 2,000 decision makers and heavyweight blue-chip companies to share insights, exchange knowledge and connect with the digital advertising and online marketing community.
In celebrating the third anniversary of ad:tech in China, Mr. Paul Beckley, Vice President for Technology, ad:tech Asia Pacific, believes the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games will further accelerate online advertising spending in China and therefore destined the event in Beijing this year.
"We are striving to establish ad:tech's legacy in China as the best interactive advertising event, bringing invaluable global insights, networking and technology solutions to our attendees. The robust growth in China's internet population, broadband availability and living standard will open tremendous opportunities for local and international digital advertisers and vendors," said Mr. Beckley.
China's online network sales is expected to reach 8.3 billion yuan (US$1.098 billion) in 2007, and will further accelerate to 23 billion yuan (US$3.043 billion) by 2010, according to industry forecast.
