BEIJING, Nov. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Tree Holdings Limited ("Danke" or the "Company") (NYSE: DNK), one of the largest co-living platforms in China with the fastest growth, hosted a stand-up comedy show on the topic of millennial tenants to celebrate the end of a promotional campaign, foster a sense of community, and create a dialogue on the important issue of positive spending habits among young Danke residents.
The event topped off the month-long promotional campaign "Eat, Drink, Play, Save," organized by Danke in cooperation with other brands popular with younger consumers. Partners included China's famous cake brand Cake Boss, China's largest online alcohol retailer Jiuxian.com, travel platform Klook, and China's leading home projector brand, XGIMI. Launched in September, Danke and the other brands offered coupons, discounts, and other benefits to help consumers make the most of the eight-day Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day Holiday (October 1 to 8) while also saving money.
The stand-up show featured three well-known comedians whose routines focused on relatable anecdotes and jokes for millennial and Gen Z tenants. The standup routines also drew from the 2020 Report on Chinese Millennial Spending Habits conducted concurrently with the "Eat, Drink, Play, Save" Campaign. Spending habits can be a scary topics for younger generations to discuss. Compared with the West, the difference in China between Gen Z and millennials spending habits and those of their parents is much greater. The comedy show aimed to de-stigmatize discussion of personal spending and encourage healthy budgeting and spending habits in a carefree way.
The three comedians interpreted and made jokes about the consumption habits and lifestyles of China's millennials and Gen Z asdescribed in Danke's report. The report revealed that 66.5% of Chinese millennials and Gen Z consumers have a balanced approach to budgeting and personal spending. They are more willing than previous generations to spend on improving their day-to-day lives and more willing to invest in personal development and self-care. At the same time, "buy now, pay later" has now become a common spending phenomenon among younger generations in China. 91.8% of respondents have used credit cards or online consumer credit services, in major contrast to previous generations.
