Postpone Announcement

C-star 2021 will be postponed

Currently, international travel to China still remains highly restricted, and the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to create uncertainties for retail brands in their offline expansion and sourcing plans. In view of the situation, the organizers have decided, after careful consideration, to postpone the 7th edition of C-star (Shanghai’s International Trade Fair for Solutions and Trends all about Retail), originally scheduled to be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from August 31st to September 2nd, 2021. The new date and planning will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Witnessing normally a high percentage of international exhibitors and visitors, we decide to postpone C-star 2021 during the special period in order to gain more time on travel normalization, get well prepared to welcome the fully recovered retail industry and to build a higher quality sourcing and communication platform.” said by Marius Berlemann, General Manager of Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd..

For the next edition, C-star will continue to focus on innovative solutions in five dimensions: Shop Fittings & Store Design, Visual Merchandising, Retail Lighting, Smart Retail Technology and Retail Marketing. The innovative supporting programme, including Retail Stage, H!Tech Stage, ReTailor Hub, EuroShop RetailDesign Award China, Retail Technology Award China as well as Visual Merchandising Challenge will offer the opportunity for visitors to discuss hot topics with excellent solution providers, leading retail brands, shopping mall executives and academic experts.

In the next stage, Messe Düsseldorf Shanghai will organize a series of offline networking events to share retail industry insights and build deep connections. Meanwhile, the organizer will continue to work with trade media, associations, research institutes and the EuroShop Trade Fair Family to collect the latest and most comprehensive retail information for retail professionals and publish on C-star official website, WeChat and LinkedIn so that retailers can keep up to date with the latest trends in the retail industry.

Roger Dubuis opens new store in Hong Kong

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Roger Dubuis sets its sights at the Ocean Terminal of Harbour City in Hong Kong as the location of its brand-new boutique.


Extravagant and irreverent, the new boutique is a reflection of the brand’s daring ethic, as defined by the motto emblazoned rakishly on its walls: ‘No Rules, Our Game’.


Glorious excess is what defines the incredible interior design of the new boutique, from the signature Astral Skeleton décor that reflects Roger Dubuis’ iconic movement design and mastery of complications, to the industrial and paradoxical minimalism that emphasises sheer scale and vision as the primary definition of Roger Dubuis understanding of excess: an overwhelming force that celebrates freedom, madness, and pleasure at their most positive and inspirational.


As the second shop to implement Roger Dubuis’ new futuristic vision, the Ocean Terminal boutique is meant to offer an artistic experience for guests which will impress upon them the expressive singularity of the brand – from its artistry to its philosophy, from its concepts to its artfully complex pieces. For those true believers of the incredible brand, the brand-new boutique also houses an exclusive VIP lounge where they may bask in the brilliance of the brand’s uniquely disruptive genius.

Audacity and creativity, innovation and expertise guide every aspect of the new boutique, and the craftsmanship of Roger Dubuis is infused into the very displays. Specially selected pieces that represent the best of the brand’s timeless craftsmanship are thus suspended in a singularly expressive space, sophisticated monuments that excite and captivate even as they demonstrate Roger Dubuis’ Hyper Horology approach.


For Roger Dubuis, ‘No Rules, Our Game’ is truly the spiritus mundi: a universal muse that encapsulates the only way forward for the inventive and cutting-edge brand – to break free from the rules and to rewrite them all for their own.


At the new Ocean Terminal Boutique, Roger Dubuis pulls out all the stops and lets loose: enrapturing and inspiring with the signature flair and quintessentially innovative style that make it the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.
