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.

Hong Kong noodle chain TamJai SamGor Mixian is expanding its presence in its home market with a flagship concept launch in the nightlife hub of Lan Kwai Fong.


The TamJai SamGor store will also unveil the brand’s new international image, featuring its signature red and black colours together with Hong Kong-style neon light signs.


“The design demonstrates TamJai SamGor’s ambition of infusing overseas elements into a Hong Kong brand, showcasing the idea of a mix of cultures and growing business in international markets,” the company said in a statement.


The store facade features a large rectangular window with a neon light frame and a  three-dimensional sign saying ‘TamJai SamGor’ in Chinese characters on one side and ‘TJSG’ on the other side. Alcohol and pairing snacks, not available in other outlets, will be rolled out at the restaurant and the new outlet in Lan Kwai Fong is scheduled to open on Friday 9 July.


Since opening its first store in Hong Kong in 2008, TamJai SamGor Mixian has grown its network to more than 70 restaurants across the city. The noodle chain made its overseas debut in Singapore last year.
