NANJING, China, Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The 2019 China International Fashion Retail Industry Summit took place from December 3rd to 4th at Bellagio Shanghai, the celebrated 5-star international hotel under the ownership of Suning Real Estate. This top-notch retail event was attended by over 300 world-renowned retail brands such as Sephora, Sisley and Belle International.
In the presence of these international brands, Suning Plaza rolled out its Three-Year Plan 2020-2023 to open 22 plus smart commercial complexes, which are expected to total almost 4 million sqms across China’s first- and second-tier cities, showcasing the leapfrog development Suning Real Estate has made in smart estate operation over the past ten or more years.
Suning Plaza, as the platform and carrier of Suning’s smart retail, integrates almost all Suning’s business formats and state-of-the-art technologies such as big data and digital operation. Each plaza is located in the CBDs of a city. The layout of the 22 plus smart commercial complexes exhibits Suning’s burning ambition to improve offline channels and build up more gateways to its smart retail.
Piggybacking on Suning’s cutting-edge smart retail technologies and three core excellences of scenario-based Internet, smart supply chain and digital operation, Suning Real Estate has built a brand-new retail model featuring omni-channel consumption scenarios, as evidenced by the 73 smart retail plazas it is running.

During the summit Suning struck partnerships with multiple prestigious brands to pool efforts to beef up the ongoing quality consumption upgrade in China.
