NOVOMANIA is a biannual international fashion tradeshow in Shanghai:
Novomania showcases the world’s premium labels in urban fashion, casual wear, shoes, premium and denim to the upper cut of Chinese buyers, media and developers. Distinctively international and independent, it brings together the best of East and West at its famous biannual fashion trade show in Shanghai.
Novomania asked QPSoftware to build a fancier and more graphically attractive website to replace their previous out-of-fashion site. They also required functionality that would allow them to facilitate registration and communication with their clients.

• Add new brands which join the show every week, ordered by category

• Share pages on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Weibo)
• Extract from the back-office list of visitors and exhibitors in CSV format in order to reuse it for campaign emailing
Additional functionality includes:• Online registration (for visitors and exhibitors)
