B2C ecommerce has transformed consumer marketing, allowing businesses to break free from the brick-and-mortar to reach consumers even in remote areas, effectively reducing barriers to market entry. 

In contrast, B2B ecommerce is a relatively new business tool, but definitely one which offers vast opportunities. The market is forecasted to grow two times bigger than the B2C market, with China expected to emerge as the largest online B2B market with an estimated potential of $2.1 trillion by 2020.

Join us to learn about this latest tool for expanding your business online with Alibaba Group, China’s homegrown B2C and B2B e-commerce giant which owns Taobao and Tmall.
