Hong Kong "HAUSTAGE" pop-up store implementation scene
Manufacturing businesses in Adachi Ward that operate manufacturing and manufacturing retailers take on the first challenge to overseas markets When selling Japanese products overseas, first, what points of their products and technologies are received from overseas markets? Knowing what you are being evaluated for is very important. “ADACHI TIDE” provides long-term support such as providing opportunities for each business operator to learn about overseas markets, directing product development, and conducting overseas test marketing. This time, with the aim of grasping overseas needs, improving products and developing further sales channels, we will exhibit and sell the products of each business in Hong Kong, which is said to be the gateway to the Chinese market, and Singapore, which is the hub of the Southeast Asian market. We held pop-up stores for a limited time in both regions.

Localized products in Hong Kong and Singapore with overseas partners. What is the reaction? Positioned as the first sustainable shop in Hong Kong, the multi-label shop “HAUSTAGE” (https://haustage.com/) handles Japanese, Asian and Nordic brands, and Singapore connects many Singaporean designers with traditional Japanese industries. , The popular gallery shop “Supermama” (https://supermamastore.com/), which produces gifts that represent modern Singaporean culture, was the venue for the pop-up store. When selling products overseas, localizing them to match the local market is considered one of the success factors. In order to improve the products, we exhibited and sold products that had undergone product improvements after receiving advice from overseas partners in advance. During the period, about 3,000 people visited "HAUSTAGE" in Hong Kong and about 2,000 people visited "Supermama" in Singapore. Comments from Overseas Partners Businesses involved in manufacturing in Adachi City are extremely diverse. I keenly felt the possibility of appealing to the layer. Usually, when I think of Tokyo, I often think of Shibuya and Shinjuku, but I was surprised that there is still an area called Adachi Ward, which is full of manufacturing. From traditional to industrial, being able to make things in the cosmopolitan city of Tokyo is a strength, and I think that unique things will be created.
