FIPP Asia-Pacific conference in Beijing addresses digital challenges
Feng said that this conference aims to confront the challenges and opportunities that have been bought about by digital magazines. “It’s a new space full of mysteries,” he said. “We are uncertain about the future, but in the last four years this space has really gained momentum.” Feng added that traditional media companies are facing a crucial moment in their existence, and this conference is of great significance to attendees because it is helping to confront challenges bought about by new platforms such as Weibo and WeChat.
