Hong Kong is a vibrant and bustling metropolis and home to all cultures and creeds, and the next big market for Pop-Up Stores. A city that never sleeps, it is filled with eternally exhilarating energy. The metropolis has multiple identities as an international center of trade, shopping paradise, and smorgasbord of the world’s food. Filled with thousands of brands, Hong Kong will only continue to welcome the latest and greatest in food, design, retail, fashion, and lifestyle products.

Central

Central is the central business district of Hong Kong. Known for its skyscrapers, high-end mega malls and glitzy lights, it is not only the prime location for retail, but also the hub for household high-fashion names, with numerous luxury and mid-price goods in shopping centres, flagship stores, and designer shops all jostling  to gain a foothold in the area.

Wan Chai

Wan Chai is a thriving business district. By day, Hennessy Road is busy with young professionals hustling and bustling to and from commercial buildings, conferences and exhibitions. By night, Wan Chai boasts a rich nightlife scene, full of bars and traditional pubs catering to the hoards of bankers, brokers and lawyers wining and dining clients. Lunch times and rush hours are fast paced with not a moment to spare. Time is money in this district, but if you have the right Pop-Up Store in this area.. To the Pop-Up victor go the spoils!

Sheung Wan

Sheung Wan, on the west side of Central, is an exotic, quaint, and friendly concoction of old and new. Traditional street life is juxtaposed with futuristic corporate skyscrapers. Riding the rickety Ding Ding tram, you will discover that the area is abundant with traditional Chinese shops, art galleries, antique shops and dried seafood stores, creating a lively local scene. Truly the “Chinese” part of the metropolis, and an exciting area for a Pop-Up Shop.

Soho

Every international city of taste has a “Soho,” and Hong Kong is no exception! Taking the Mid-Levels Escalators, you will arrive in Soho– the vibrant dining and drinking scene in Hong Kong Island. It offers a totally different atmosphere and culture from that of Central and Sheung Wan. It is filled with art galleries, cafes and a variety of boutiques… and is Pop-Up-and-coming!

Causeway Bay

Causeway Bay is the altar of retail spaces– THE place to shop until you drop.

It is an enviable neighborhood for a Pop-Up Store unbeatable with mega malls, mid-price and luxury stores and affordable youth fashion boutiques lined endlessly in the warren of streets. Densely packed with shoppers, tourists and restaurant-goers, the area is vibrant 24/7.
