EuroCIS, The Leading Trade Fair for Retail Technology, running in Düsseldorf from 19 to 21 February, has already exceeded its exhibitor record from last year: to the tune of 460 exhibitors will take part, occupying approximately 14,000 square meters (2018: 13,406 square meters). Particularly worth mentioning here is the event’s higher international participation: with 37 countries the organisers have registered as many nations as ever on the exhibitor side. Represented for the first time are Israel, Canada and Singapore, to name but three countries.  

EuroCIS 2019: Mirror of the Retail Industry and Future Platform

Omni-channel retail – i.e. addressing shoppers via different but fully integrated channels – has become indispensable. This is why all solutions that support retailers in implementing their omni-channel strategies will play a prominent role at EuroCIS 2019. These include especially mobile solutions be it for supporting shop assistants, for interacting with shoppers’ smartphones and for mobile payment applications or for POS digitalisation ensuring better service and emotionalising the store experience with Smart Mirrors, video walls or Virtual Reality. Also up and coming are IOT, AI and robotics. Here many things will be shifting over the next few years which is also highly relevant for retail. These themes will also move centre stage at the exhibitors’ stands at EuroCIS 2019.

Start-up hub provides Energy Boost for Retail Technology

Start ups are young, creative, flexible, future-oriented and especially stand out with their innovative problem solutions. What could be a better fit for EuroCIS 2019, the Leading Trade Fair for Retail Technology, than newcomers all dedicated to the development of cutting-edge IT systems and solutions for retail? After the successful debut last year, the Start-up hub has grown yet again and is booked up with 15 participating companies.

In addition to their stands at the Start-up hub these newcomers will be given the opportunity to present themselves and their solutions to the international expert audience at the dedicated lecture forum “The Stage” facilitated by trade magazine Berlin Valley.
