EUROSHOP 2020

28.03.2019


EuroShop, the biggest retail trade fair has made its debut in 1966. The mid 60’s where there was no Super Bowl, ATM machines or even diet coke! The era that Germany had still the walls between two sides or the times that the first Wal-Mart store opened its doors.

It sounds like unbelievable, right?

At such a time, EuroShop, became the gateway to the world’s markets, a hotspot for each and everyone who was going after mint state ideas, inspirations and keys for success in retail industry.

When EuroShop started its journey with 331 exhibitors and nearly 20.000 square meters, none of us could ever imagine the numbers would hit 6 to 10 times where most of the trade fairs began to be forgotten in these days of insatiable consumption period.

Needless to say that, this exponential growth is no coincidence for EuroShop. There are quite a few underlying factors that can commentate the recipe for its success. To ensure the complete package of retail inspiration, EuroShop, needed a continual self improvement. They knew this necessity backwards and forwards!



At the first EuroShop, frozen foods has been presented as “the merchandise of the future”. Back then a lot of water has flowed beneath the retail bridge. Today’s retail world is changing faster than ever after all...

Therefore, EuroShop changed and adopted its format according to the needs of its visitors and exhibitors. It used to be held under four sectors which was called EuroConcept, EuroSales, EuroExpo and EuroCIS. In 2017, “the sectors” switched to “dimensions” and four became seven. The center of the focus was to create a more flexible and customized environment, build synergy between various dimensions that have already started to merge in real life and enlarge the scope of the fair to shape the forward thinking. It was also announced that in 2020 the dimensions would be extended to eight instead of seven.

Let us take a quick glance of these eight dimensions that can inject more depth than ever to EuroShop 2020 and what it means to your brand or company.
