EuroShop has a long history. Dating back to 1966, the expo witnessed the rise of consumerism with the introduction of supermarkets, department stores and then malls. Messe Düsseldorf serves as the home for the exhibition and editions are spaced every three years, which is a hidden strength. By the time the next edition rolls out, the industry and technology will have changed in tangible ways. Exhibitors have a much better chance to penetrate new markets effortlessly.
The trade show is organised around eight main product ranges (called Dimensions), which together represent the full value chain. These are Shop Fitting & Store Design, Retail Technology & EuroCIS, Lighting, POP Marketing, Visual Merchandising, Food Service Equipment, Refrigeration & Energy Management and Expo & Event Marketing. It’s all new technology presented in a smart hall plan in order to increase your exposure to targeted sales leads.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
EuroShop has a tight hold over Europe as most visitors come from European countries such as Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Russia, Spain, and Poland. Asia and America make only small dates in the makeup. A total of 69% of visitors are foreign nationals, which makes EuroShop a truly international trade show of the highest order. It is no surprise to hear organisers call it the Number 1 retail show in the world.
As far as sectors go, you will showcase your new products to visitors from all relevant and related industry sectors. These would be food retail, fashion retail, wholesale, non-food retail, architecture and design agencies, stand construction, consulting, shop-building industry, consumer goods and so many more. The reasons why professionals from all these sectors visit are manifold. In addition to scouting out new trends, visitors come to place orders, meet with existing suppliers and identify new business partners. All forms of management are represented from lower ranks to the very top of the corporate food chain!

The Additional Value of Attendance
ЕuroShop knows how to create value for exhibitors and visitors alike. Each Dimension has its own stage where additional presentations and lectures will take place. This content will be available to virtual visitors as well. So you’ll be informed on what your competitors are doing and the state of the market as a whole without having to leave your Dimension.
Organisers have also created special areas that highlight specific products. There’s the Designers’ Village, Italian Lighting Lounge and Food Innovation. You’ll get to see fully curated assortments of products and technologies, which increase your chances to generate qualified sales leads. There is also sufficient space for disruptors and young companies. The Start-up Hub is a dedicated space for newcomers to present their ideas and groundbreaking products to interested investors.
The Outlook for 2023
The coronavirus pandemic has drastically altered the retail industry and we don’t yet know the full extent of these changes. EuroShop 2023 is on the job to investigate and open conversations on the most important topics and market opportunities. The upcoming edition has announced its official list of hot topics: Connected Retail, Sustainability, Smart Store, Energy Management, Lively City Centres, Third Places, Customer Centricity and Experience.
Exhibitors and visitors can expect other major changes to the format of the event. Organisers have worked out a new structure and hall plan, which is much more visitor friendly and centers on how to create synergy between different Dimensions. The goal is to fully prepare exhibitors for success. EuroShop responds quickly to emerging trends. Retail technology and refrigeration have been growing markets, which is why their areas will have significantly more space.
As many other trade shows over the past two years, EuroShop is embracing a hybrid format seeing how the pandemic still creates barriers for international flight. If you can’t travel to the live event, no worries! The digital program still allows you to showcase product videos, presentations, while papers and manuals. Users can easily discover your brand and experience all your content in a very comprehensive way. Not to mention the EuroShop digital platform gives you access to the different stages of the show and their programming.
