DÜSSELDORF EuroShop Retail Trade Fair, 16-20 FEB 2020
Event date: 16-02-2020
EuroShop is the world’s largest trade fair for retail investment requirements. Future-oriented and dynamic as the industry itself, the trade fair presents itself in eight fascinating retail dimensions with all the trends and topics that are moving the future.
EuroShop 2017 – the World’s No. 1 Retail Trade Fair – presented itself for the first time with a new concept: 7 dimensions of experience. This forward-looking change was honoured by exhibitors and visitors alike. With 2,368 exhibitors on 127,000 sqm of net space and over 113,000 visitors from all over the world, EuroShop achieved the best result in its 50-year history.
For the trade fair organisers in Düsseldorf it goes without saying that they mustn’t rest on their laurels, that they need to keep in touch with the latest trends and that it’s important to identify market developments in good time. This is why arrangements are already being made for the next EuroShop. In 2020 the seven existing dimensions (Shop Fitting & Store Design, Visual Merchandising, Lighting, Retail Marketing, Retail Technology, Refrigeration & Energy Management and Expo & Event Marketing) will have another one added to them. This 8th dimension at EuroShop will be called Food Service Equipment.
After all, it is becoming obvious at the moment that food service facilities in and around retail stores are gathering momentum. Much planning and many refurbishment projects at food retail stores are currently moving towards adding in-store facilities of this kind. The share of cafés and restaurants in shopping centres is rising, filling stations are offering food for immediate consumption, department stores are setting up themed restaurants that merge into a given environment, and we are seeing an increase in food and beverage services that play a major role in making customers feel happy and welcome.
