About today’s session:
Too often China is spoken about as one market or the ‘Chinese wine consumer’ described as a monolithic entity. However, the Chinese market is highly segmented and fragmented, with not only geographical delineations demarcating consumer behaviour, but also age-groups, social identifiers and economic status. This talk will analyse various consumer profiles in China and link their traits to wine consumption, both in terms of taste preferences and buying habits.For the wineries looking to build brands in the Chinese market, this will be an invaluable exploration of the diversity of the Chinese markets and will allow for a much more targeted approach to not only identify possible importers and distributors but also to gain insight into the possible end point consumer
