"We are very glad to have The HUB as part of Shanghai Fashion Week and Mode this time.  The HUB has provided lots of opportunities for local buyers to see unique designs and concepts from all over the world.  They’ve also built a great platform for international brands to enter the China market and develop business here.  We look forward to working closer in the future."

Madame Lv, Vice Secretary General of Shanghai Fashion Week Organization


“We saw our customers, met some good new buyers and also some journalists. Street and casual fashions are really starting to take off now in China. Shanghai is really buzzing.”
— DANIEL LI, SALES & MARKETING MANAGER, MR GUGU AND MISS GO (POLAND)

“We were very pleased to participate in The HUB for this year’s first fashion week in Shanghai. The HUB and the people behind this trade fair has provided an excellent platform to get into contact with relevant professionals to help us grow our business on the Chinese mainland.  The RAINS team sends our sincere recommendation to other fashion companies aiming to expand into China.”

BJØRN INGWAR KARLSEN, COUNTRY MANAGER (CHINA), RAINS


“Having already introduced our products into the Chinese market we were wanting to develop our customer base, we felt The Hub Shanghai would be a good platform to do this. It takes time to enter any new market and China is no different to other markets we currently operate in. We met new buyers over the three days of the fair, wrote some orders and will definitely be looking at returning next year.”

“For its second season in Shanghai, The HUB has proved worth showing at since we saw more clients and met new ones.  The addition of the Fashion East fashion show brought great buzz and helped with networking.”

“For 22.01, it was our first time at The HUB.  We met amazing contacts. The HUB is a good platform to meet real, serious, buyers!”

MANUEL TOLEDO, CO-FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR, 22.01

“The HUB is a strategic venue to negotiate and close deals of this nature – a single place in the APAC region to meet high-value customers – which is key to growing business across this vast region.”

MIKE TODD, OWNER, TWO DECK (AUSTRALIA)

“I’ve found the mix of vendors to be good, and the after-show events and parties are a great touch. I think networking and socialising is a really important part of this business, and the show has done an excellent job of facilitating that. I will be attending the next edition.”
