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.

King’s Arms, a new gastro pub opened in July – bringing the quintessentially British vibes into Tung Chung, Hong Kong.


By teaming up with appetizing and quality fusion pub food, drinks and cozy atmosphere, this newly opened gastro pub is shaking things up in Hong Kong’s up-and-coming neighbourhood – Tung Chung, where it has a good mix of expats and locals.


Located in the ground floor level of Seaview Crescent Plaza, King’s Arms is a Sport theme bar providing a chic yet relaxing environment. Decorated by different photo frames on the wall with British athletic and historical people, British landmarks, and British colonial memory; as well as equipping with multiple screens, table football, West and East infused bistro food, and great selection of beers on tap – an enjoyable chill evening does not get much better than that. King’s Arms caters to sport-watching, drinks, and gourmet needs – it transported guests to the UK with a home-like sensation immediately when entered the pub.


Pub food is a celebration of everything great about British traditional cuisine, classic dishes: All-Day English breakfast, The great British bangers and mash with Guinness gravy, Beef stew with mash. peas and carrots, and King’s Arms’ signature Shepherd’s Pie.

Besides, King’s Arms adds British people’s best-loved flavours into the menu, that is Curry. Their love with curry can be traced back to the 18th century when they bring this cuisine back to the UK. The “West Meets East” menu of King’s Arms highlights a great selection of signature Indian dishes including Chicken Tikka Butter Chicken (the top 5 most popular dishes voted by British people), Lamb Keema Pav and Anda Pav, Lamb Laal Maas, Chilli Con Carne, Whole Patrani Seabass Wrapped in Banana Leaf, Achari Paneer Tikka and more.


As a British gastro pub, beer is vital to King’s Arms. The extensive list of beers will never
disappoint everyone. Guests can look forward to more than 60 selections of draught beers on tap and bottled beer, popular choices including London Pride, Old Speckled Hen, Draught Spitfire and many others. These sit alongside a massive selection of ale, lager and wine etc.


Expanding across two shops with bar table, indoor and vivid semi-outdoor seating, this
brand-new British gastro pub can accommodate over 90 guests. King’s Arms is a classy and cozy sports bar and dining spot infused with British traditional design elements. The venue offers a hassle-free drinking and dining experience for all the guests – as well as providing a comfy hotspot in the neighbourhood.
