The name – Ontimeshow – has its origins in the Chinese idiom from Mencius 天时地利人和 – when timing, geographical and social context are favourable – or in Mencius’ time, a good time to go to war! Nowhere is this more true in the business context than in China, but it isn’t without its challenges. A vast and complex territory whose burgeoning fashion industry, though in its relative infancy, has already become a prime strategic focus for emerging and established brands alike. This landscape can be daunting to navigate, which is where Ontimeshow comes in. Launched in 2014, we are a by-invitation only trade show based in Shanghai, connecting brands with industry professionals from across the globe but specializing in the unique Chinese market. Being the largest trade show in China to connect industry professionals and brands, both domestic and international, Ontimeshow invites you to meet our well-established network of buyers, agents and distributors, as well as media and retail attendees. Coinciding with Shanghai Fashion Week each season, we guarantee the best opportunity to meet potential partners and make important connections to establish your brand in China.
Not only a fashion trade show, Ontimeshow also hosts an array of multi-media installations, catwalk shows and after-parties which all help to create a relaxed yet exciting atmosphere. The Ontimeshow team’s enduring curiosity to developments in the industry means we are continually adding new content and forms to the show. Fashion shows, art exhibitions, presentations, photo exhibitions, music concerts, window displays and so on. Ontimeshow is far more than a trading location, but an ideal space for real communication.
