Pop-up stores are hot on the retail scene


"Online labels have been jumping aboard the pop-up store trend. Though reports of the weakening retail market and ailing brick-and-mortar business abound, online retailers are using temporary physical spaces in malls and department stores to reach out to a wider audience... Pop-ups are a way for the company to expand its footprint and to acquire customers from different locations. You get to activate crowds in certain parts of Singapore for a few months and then you move to another location and acquire new customers again."

About the Host

Mr. Tong Cheuk Fung

Founder, WASABI Creation~ Creating Awesome Projects between Japan & Singapore


Tong started learning Japanese as third language at age 13. After graduating from National University of Singapore with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Tong packed his bags and flew to Kyoto for his first job, and began his new life in Japan. In 2014, after spending 5 years in Japan, Tong returned to Singapore to set up WASABI Creation, for “creating awesome projects between Japan and Singapore”.

Tong’s goal is to make WASABI Creation the catalyst for creating business opportunities, developing close relationships, and explore possibilities between Japan and Singapore, as well as the ASEAN region. WASABI Creation’s mission is to spice up ASEAN with a sprinkle of Japan’s wonders, just like the overwhelming taste and burning sensation of the green Wasasbi. (Read more)
