At the invitation of Golden Eagle, I had the pleasure to address the joint meeting with China Mobile on the merging of online and offline retail and described current issues in global retail including US, Europe, and Asia. China Mobile is the world’s largest telecom operator with over 830 million subscribers. I described SafeRock’s unique system to integrate mobile and search data for brands, retailers, and malls. This will improve customer engagement and establish a new way to link physical and online shopping.
Visiting the new GE-World mall with Roger Wang, CEO of Golden Eagle, was a distinct highlight of my visit to Nanjing in November 2017. The GE-World complex contains Asia’s largest shopping mall, covering over 4.5 million square feet. It is paired with three buildings containing offices, residences, and a hotel.
On Singles Day, 11.11.2017 (globally this is the biggest shopping day for retail sales) I had the privilege to observe the live e-commerce operations in Golden Eagle’s Nanjing headquarters all the way till midnight. The dedicated teams were hard at work and they achieved record sales.
