Alibaba.com will launch a “wholesale festival” in September which aims to attract over 20 million wholesalers worldwide. The festival will feature over 20,000 B2B live-streams, short form videos and 3D display showrooms which will be held in many factories across China.
It aims to help Chinese foreign trade corporations prepare for big shopping festivals that will take place in the second half of this year, including Double 11 (Singles’ Day), Black Friday and Christmas.
