Description

Join us for our next Hardware Massive Hong Kong event on Wednesday May 25 at MakerHive Hong Kong.

Leverage everything you have! Kickstarter and Amazon are nice, but there are still plenty of channels to tap into to diversify your sales strategy. We'll dig into some case studies as well as tactics on how to prepare for a wider sales and marketing distribution strategy with our speaker Michael Michelini.

Michael is a social media & e-commerce specialist who helps companies do business in China by leveraging the power of social media and e-commerce. He hosts the weekly podcast GlobalFromAsia.com to help businesses understand how to do business in China and other parts of Asia. Michael is also the Hong Kong + China, Asia Business Consultant with Shadstone Ltd and recently organized the Cross Border Summit in Shenzhen. www.globalfromasia.com/crossbordersummit
