 Zhuo Tan, Event Director of Design Shanghai says: “Design Shanghai has gone from strength to strength over the last ten years. We have persuaded many overseas brands to join this emerging market In China, and help Chinese brands communicate and export to the outside world and strive to change everyone’s perception of Chinese design. In the next 10 years, we will continue to do this, and at the same time we will use more energy to convince the overseas media and overseas markets. I believe in Chinese design and Chinese creativity. I look forward to witnessing more innovations and break throughs by Design Shanghai in June this Year.”
