This is 11.11, the Chinese Black Friday that already reaches the whole world

El Black Friday, which originated a few decades ago in the United States, has already made the leap to the rest of the world. Now, in Europe and other regions such as Asia, this event has become the starting signal for end-of-year shopping campaigns and during the days in which it is held, technology companies, regardless of their size and implantation, can balance your accounts or, conversely, get worse results than expected due to device sales.

However, China once again gains muscle by facing this event with its own, the 11.11. This number is considered a symbol of fortune and good luck in the Asian giant, but it has also become a holiday in which hundreds of millions of people not only travel the country, but also rush to buy all kinds of items, whether or not they are from Consumer electronics. The most striking thing is the fact that it has also made the leap outside its borders. Here we tell you in more detail what it is and how it landed here.


Chinese Black Friday

When trying to define it, we do not find too many differences with its American counterpart. During this appointment, most brands apply discounts significant to its products in different fields ranging from textiles, to tablets and smartphones in the strict sense. In China, it has already acquired its own identity under the name of "Singles Day" although it already has little to do with this group and much more with consumption. One piece of information serves to exemplify this change: During the editing of 2016, one of the main electronic shopping portals based there, Alibaba, billed more than 16.000 millones de euros.

Internet commerce, the key to expansion

If there is one element that has been decisive in positioning the Country of the Great Wall as a technological powerhouse, it has been shopping websites. Here it is possible to find a multitude of device manufacturers that, despite having an acceptable reception in their place of origin, until relatively recently, have had problems reaching areas such as Europe and very little visibility. Many of the chinese terminals that we have shown you here, can only be acquired through them. Not forgetting the largest such as Huawei, which have their own sections in them.

The biggest

At some time, we have all acquired a specific gadget or device on these portals. Currently, the most powerful could be at least two, in the field of technology: Aliexpress and Gearbest. However, there are other more discreet ones that also have their own offers on 11.11 in order to get more presence. What do you think? Do you think that the American appointment will be the reference at least in the Old Continent and that the Chinese still has a long way to go? We leave you related information such as a list of tablets that will have discounts in the Black Friday this year so you can learn more.
