Maggie Zhou, managing director for Alibaba Australia and New Zealand said the Expo provided value to Australian businesses large and small.

“The 2018 Expo has been designed to engage big businesses already having great success with our online marketplaces like Tmall and Tmall Global, as well as SMEs who are looking for knowledge and support to tap into the Chinese market.”

Augmented reality technology powered by Alibaba Cloud was on display at the Expo including a “magic mirror” through which real-time personal images can be combined with beauty product effects to drive sales conversion for brand merchants.

And artificial intelligence on display included the “cloud shelf” where Chinese retailers include virtual products on the shop shelf that are available to order online.
