Rebranding from ShenzhenParty to Now Shenzhen

During the transition in 2020/2021, the brand Shenzhen Party (and the domain Shenzhenparty.com) became Now Shenzhen (and the domain nowshenzhen.com). Learn more about the rebranding.


Because we want to encompass more the full media range of opportunities in Shenzhen, and the name containing “party” often times did not represent the full breadth of opportunity this media site has become. Don’t fret, typing in Shenzhen Party will still get you to this new and improved Now Shenzhen media destination.
