Every three years when EuroShop, the World’s No. 1 Retail Trade Fair, is held in Düsseldorf, EuroCIS (organised as an annual stand-alone trade fair in the years in between) forms one of seven dimensions of EuroShop. This will also be the case again this year from 5 to 9 March. 575 exhibitors (occupying 18,500 m²) out of the altogether 2,400 exhibitors from 61 nations account for the Retail Technology Dimension of EuroShop with 126,000 m² net exhibition space. Here the global range of IT solutions specifically geared to retail will be represented almost completely.
The proven EuroCIS Forum as well as the Omnichannel Forum will also ensure considerable added value for visitors in charge of retail IT at EuroShop, too. In brief talks delivered between 6 and 9 March current practical examples will be presented as well as projects and trends revolving around retail technology. EuroShop trade visitors can attend the presentations at the two forums in Hall 6 free of charge and find out about the latest developments in concise pitches. Exhibitors and their retail partners will jointly introduce visitors to innovative approaches and outstanding solutions that have recently been implemented.
The themes covered at EuroCIS are as diversified as the subjects addressed at the forums. For instance, the EuroCIS Forum addresses the following issues:
Managing Digital Outlets Safely and Reliably
'Me-commerce' Versus E-commerce: How Retailers are Fighting Back with Experiential In-store Personalisation
