China Net Online Holdings Inc., a leading full-service B2B media development and IT company for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the People’s Republic of China, last weekend participated in the 13th Annual China Franchise, Asia’s largest and most influential franchise exhibition, in Beijing.

The exhibition resulted in a string of sales meetings, which generated 12 new clients for ChinaNet’s integrated advertising and marketing services platform.

“The China Franchise Expo was extremely successful for ChinaNet and events like this enable us to accomplish a lot in a short period of time. Signing new clients, building a pipeline of prospects and increasing our brand identity were three primary goals of this event,” Handong Cheng, chairman and CEO of ChinaNet stated in the press release.

ChinaNet had two booths at the expo – one to promote its core advertising and marketing services, and the other a joint exhibit with Taiwan Franchise Association targeting entrepreneurs.

The company met with more than 100 diversified, new franchise owners over the course of the three-day conference, promoting its services and building new networking opportunities.

“We continue to drive more franchisors and entrepreneurs to our Internet advertising platform every day. SMEs, which account for 99 percent of enterprises in China and 60 percent of the country’s GDP, remain a large and growing opportunity. By expanding our network of high quality franchise owners and entrepreneurs and providing them with cost-effective advertising and value-added services, we have created a model to support sustained future growth,” Cheng stated.
