Hosts competition is also a major highlight during this year’s Double 12. The winner of the daytime session will get the chance to join the top hosts in the evening.
Industrial live broadcasting is another important theme for this year. From December 1 to 8, Taobao Live will carry out 8 consecutive days’ direct supply of industrial goods. In addition, it will also empower the hosts of local industrial resources.
