Welcome In 2011,
EuroShop attracted 2,036 exhibitors from 53 countries and more than 100,000 visitors. In 2014, the 18th triennial retail trade fair promises to be even bigger and better with more exhibition space and a host of new features, including the Lighting Designers’ zone. Taking place from 16-20 February 2014 in Dusseldorf, Germany, the event brings together innovative ideas, products and services to meet the challenges of today’s retail environment. Once again, it will be divided into four key sections, namely EuroCIS, EuroConcept, EuroExpo and EuroSales, covering everything from shopfitting and design to technology and visual merchandising. In the pages to follow, we provide a preview of EuroShop 2014, including forums, award ceremonies, stand highlights and what to do while in Dusseldorf. Happy planning and we look forward to seeing you in February.
an incredibly tough few years for retail with brands and manufacturers feeling the impact of the financial downturn. However, sometimes the greatest amount of creativity can come out of having to work on a tight budget and being up against fierce competition. The shopfitting industry has had to work hard to innovate and find ways to make amazing things happen with less money and this is something that we at the CDS Group pride ourselves in doing. EuroShop 2014 marks a turning point and provides a hub for us and other retail designers and manufacturers to display our expertise to brands hungry for new ideas to make their businesses more attractive. I’m sure we’ll be one of many companies designing our exhibition stand to demonstrate the best of what we do with innovation, excellence and flexibility in mind. This creativity and competition will make for an impressive and inspiring event for attending brands and the wider sector.

Talk EuroShop The triennial retail trade show, in which Retail Focus is a media partner, returns to Dusseldorf in February 2014 with a promising programme of exhibitors, events and seminars. The retail world will descend on Dusseldorf, Germany early next year for EuroShop 2014. Staged just once every three years, the mighty retail trade fair attracts industry professionals from around the globe looking for ideas, innovations and solutions for store design, architecture, visual merchandising, POS marketing, IT and security. For the first time the event will spread across 16 exhibition halls at Messe Dusseldorf and will be split into four main sectors, namely EuroConcept, EuroSales, EuroCIS and EuroExpo. EuroConcept will form the largest segment of the show, covering everything from shopfitting, architecture and store design to lighting and refrigeration equipment. It will also be home to the Designer Village, where retail architectural firms and design studios such as Dalziel & Pow, Kinnersley Kent Design and Green Room Retail will showcase their services and previous work. The supporting EuroShop Architecture & Design Forum will also provide a stage for some of these firms to present trends and developments in store design, lighting, shopping centres and exhibition architecture. Among the line up, Kinnersley Kent Design will speak about ‘retail internationalisation’, and Green Room Retail will give a talk on ‘Retail Reinventions: Experience is Everything’. EuroConcept will also house the new Lighting Designers zone, which provides a platform for independent lighting planners
and designers. Here, individual stands will be grouped around a lounge area with bar in hall 11. ‘The Lighting Designers’ Zone offers an opportunity for [lighting planners and designers] to present their trade and to show the retail establishment the still untapped potential of lighting design,’ says EuroShop show director, Elke Moebius. ‘That’s because we’re talking about independent lighting planners, which means they aren’t tied to any manufacturer, product or brand but are free to act independently and develop new visions from scratch, fuelled by product ideas from around the world.’ The EuroSales segment will focus on visual merchandising and display while EuroCIS will be dedicated to retail technology. EuroExpo will centre on stand construction, design and events. On the opening night, EuroShop and EHI Retail Institute will present the winners of the EuroShop RetailDesign Award 2014, in the Capitol Theatre in Dusseldorf. Then, on the second day the winners will give presentations of their award-winning projects at the EuroShop RetailDesign Conference, in the Congress Centre at Messe Dusseldorf. Visitors to EuroShop and its supporting programme of conferences, forums and awards can register online at: www.euroshop-tradefair.com
