Another supporting programme is added to recognize outstanding Chinese designs
C-star has always been committed to building a multi-module trade fair model. The event is further enriched by a series of exciting supporting programmes with various themes and formats to help retailers understand the future development trends, create a high-quality communication and networking platform, and promote the development of the retail industry. In addition to the well-received C-star Retail Forum and ReTailor Hub, this year we will also establish the EuroShop RetailDesign Award China (ERDA China) based on the EuroShop RetailDesign Award (ERDA). As the Chinese retail industry has formed its own pattern with Chinese characteristics during its development, one set of criteria is no longer the optimal assessment for retail designs in both China and other countries, so we establish ERDA China for the unique needs of the Chinese retail industry, and invite more domestic experts to join the jury and crown the outstanding store designs in China. The awardees will be invited as guest speakers to give a 30-minute speech each at the C-star Retail Forum, receive free round-trip plane tickets and accommodations to visit EuroShop/EuroCIS in Germany from organizer, and the award-winning designs will directly enter the final round of selection for ERDA.
At the same time, H!Tech Hub, which will be unveiled at C-star, will present innovative technology through future retail technology demonstration and the product experience zone. We will also partner with leading media in various fields to organize multiple salons and training events with different topics during C-star 2020.
