Get ready to shop in Shanghai

This summer, Shanghai is the place to be for tourism, culture, and shopping. The 5th Shanghai Shopping Festival and the first Shanghai Summer International Consumption Season will stimulate tourism and activities as a new annual planned activity beginning at the end of this month.

The words “debut economy,” “brand economy,” “nighttime economy,” and “live streaming economy” are used to introduce new services, cars, and sustainable products.

There are two themes: 55@Shanghai and “love shopping Shanghai”.

Following the retail events, the celebrations will continue in July with 65 high-quality concerts, music festivals, artistic performances, culture and art exhibitions, and important sporting events.

Some of the prominent events are the Civilization of Ancient Egypt show, the City Walk Pro Shanghai city experience season, the first Shanghai International Cruise Festival, the 2024 Shanghai Tourism Festival, and the Shanghai Masters ATP1000. A total of 58 unique themed activities ensure a varied urban consumer experience.
