EuroShop 2014 in Düsseldorf: Lots More Space
Now in 16 rather than 15 Exhibition Halls
EuroShop, The World’s Leading Retail Trade Fair, held in Düsseldorf from 16 to 20 February 2014, is as high in demand from exhibitors as ever. Interest from abroad is already especially high at this early point in time.
Even today, nine months to the start of the event, exhibition space at EuroShop 2011 has already reached 108,000 square metres. To ensure the trade fair can meet this high level of demand in 2014 EuroShop will now for the first time occupy 16 rather 15 halls.
Posting particular growth is the EuroShop segment EuroConcept including shop fitting, lighting and cooling cabinets as well as the EuroExpo segment. Which is why these segments will not only fill Halls 9 and 10 (EuroExpo) and 10 – 15 (EuroConcept) but will also jointly occupy Hall 5. In 2014 the EuroSales segment will as usual be found in Halls 3 and 4 but these will also occupy Hall 1 instead of Hall 5. This means that Hall 1 will be occupied for the first time at a EuroShop trade fair.
As is customary, the EuroCIS segment will be housed in Halls 6 and 7a and is nearly fully booked already. So if need be Hall 7.0 can be added. The E-commerce theme, in particular, will be widely featured both at the stands and in the associated Multi-Channel Forum.
EuroShop 2014is open daily to trade visitors from 10.00 am to 6.00 pmfrom Sunday, 16 February 2014, to Thursday, 20 February 2014,. 1-day tickets cost EUR 60.- (EUR 42.- when purchased online beforehand (e-Ticket)), 2-day tickets are EUR 80.- (EUR 60.- when purchased online) and season tickets are EUR 135.- (EUR 115.- when purchased online). Students and trainees pay EUR 20.-. Admission tickets include a free return trip to EuroShop on public transport marked VRR (Verkehrsverbund-Rhein-Ruhr).
In 1966 EuroShop was organised for the first time by Messe Düsseldorf and is held every three years. The EHI Retail Institute acts as the event’s conceptual sponsor. EuroShop is divided into four independent segments: The EuroConcept area pools themes like shop fitting, store interiors, lighting, flooring, Architecture & Store Design as well as cooling cabinets and refrigeration systems. EuroSales is the name of the segment presenting all facets of Visual Marketing and Merchandising while the EuroCIS sector is dedicated to Retail Technology. EuroExpoin turn unites exhibition architecture, design and events. The last EuroShop in 2011 registered 2,036 exhibitors from 53 countries on approximately 108,000 m² net exhibition area and over 107,000 trade visitors, of these 60.2% from abroad.
