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.

China is aiming to build a strong domestic market, with new steps to promote a higher level of opening-up during the 2021 to 2025 period, for the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Xinhua reported based on a statement from the Ministry of Commerce.

 

China is targeting a 5% retail sales growth by 2025, which will translate to sales of $7.72t (RMB50t) during that period, according to a business development plan issued by the ministry.

 

The plan stated that the country will work to play a better role in global economic governance and enhance its capacity to prevent and defuse risks. In addition to 2021 to 2025 development targets, the plan also provided an outlook for higher quality commerce growth in 2035.
