GDF Plaza has set up an exhibition space with coastal characteristics at Haikou’s famed Wormhole Library, displaying international brands and offering wine tastings. Visitors who follow the group’s official WeChat account could be in with a chance of receiving exclusive gifts.

To boost in-store sales, GDF Plaza is sharing discount coupons that can be used at the group’s stores located in Haikou’s Mova Mall.

At a poetry and wine garden party hosted by the retailer, visitors could access additional offshore duty-free benefits through WeChat. The activities are an attempt to boost the flow of people between the group’s outdoor exhibition spaces and permanent indoor stores.

During the carnival, GDF Plaza joined hands with Elizabeth Arden on 18 June to launch a VIP member salon at the retailer’s stores where products from the brand’s Prevage collection are displayed. Skincare professionals introduced the collection and shared their luxury skincare expertise with consumers.
