Baidu Basics Webinar - March 10th (changed)

Following on from their recent expansion into Japan, the folks at Baidu have set up a new international office, headed up by Grace Zhou, to interface with foreign companies wanting to reach Chinese netizens. Although Google is making aggressive moves, Baidu still dominates search in China, claiming over 60% of searches in this rapidly expanding internet market of over 210 million curious and connected people.

The webinar - login details to be confirmed - will be a panel format with Grace Zhou from Baidu, Lonnie Hodge from Culture Fish Media, Sam Flemming of CIC Data and a representative of ChinaOnTV and moderated by Christine Lu of China Business Network at 11:30 - 12:30 (Beijing Standard Time) on Monday 10th March (note change from 6th March in poster above). There will also be a live Q&A session held via Twitter and Seesmic (again, no account details released yet).

You can sign up for the webinar via Facebook or Culture Fish Media's website. As of 19th Feb, 88 people had taken the brave step.
