Events: Melody & Kuromi Pop-up Cafe, and LP x Sanrio Star Dining
Venue: Langham Place
Date: Until the end of October
Langham Place has a long history with Sanrio for massive in-mall installations and visual advertising. But seems like this marketing trick is a little too overused by big scale shopping malls in Hong Kong.

In view of this, for the first time Langham Place has collaborated with restaurants in the shopping centre as part of a four-month-long summer marketing campaign Sanrio Star Dining. Participated parties include Ishiyaki+café and 100 Bites.
Vivian Leung, general manager of Eagle Property Management, said the move marks the mall’s first attempt to bring Sanrio into stores to make a 360 degree experience for shoppers.
“It’s a big shift for us. Not only does it break the stereotype of shopping centre marketing, it’s also a new way to give greater exposure and publicity to our tenants.”
Alongside the campaign Sanrio Star Dining is a series of activities featuring the most popular Sanrio characters including My Melody, Kuromi, Little Twin Stars, Hello Kitty, Pom Pom Purin & Bad Badtz-Maru will be introduced from July to October 2014.
