Two months ago, on the livestreaming platforms of CSF, we launched a forum of “Stationery · Creativity · Bookstore - Shared Culture, Shared Future”, presenting bookstore industry’s post-epidemic recovery and changes in the operation. We also discussed the business integration of bookstores, stationery, and cultural and creative products.
Finally, we are able to meet face-to-face again in Shanghai!
On the morning of September 17, the first physical forum with the theme of “Stationery · Creativity · Bookstore - Shared Culture, Shared Future” will be held in the K018 forum area of Hall 1.2 of CSF.
