88tc88.com announced today a series of significant deals executed since its launch at the SXSW Interactive festival earlier this year. The deals signify that the marketplace recognizes the immense opportunity presented by 88tc88 in the Chinese market for millions of international songs that have never been heard or distributed legally across China previously.

The specific deals, and the greater opportunity, will be further explored at MusicMatters 2010, which will take place in Hong Kong from May 26-28, 2010. High-powered discussions, keynote presentations and in-depth analysis are an integral part of the event where 88tc88 Chairman Thomas Reemer will be accompanied by Bill Zhang, VP of Shanghai Synergy Culture & Entertainment Group (SSCEG), 88tc88's distribution partner throughout China, in a speech to address this groundbreaking accomplishment.

"88tc88 provides exclusive access to the Chinese market for millions of international songs with the full understanding by the Chinese people of the original lyrics of the songs through our translations," said Thomas Reemer, Chairman of 88tc88. "Our expedited translation services and distribution facilitates worldwide Chinese search backed by critical distribution through our alliance with SSCEG. Because of the massive potential for exposure to millions of Chinese consumers, we are quickly executing deals with worldwide music aggregators, among others, to empower them with access to the Chinese market that generated US$2.4 billion in revenue from mobile music downloads and ringtones alone just last year."
