EuroShop 2023 To Highlight Shifting Consumer Trends


Consumer needs are not what they used to be. Trade fair EuroShop will be gathering the industry’s leaders and tech experts to discuss emerging trends and innovative solutions to tackle ever-evolving demands at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from February 26 to March 2. 

EuroShop will be showcasing the transition from “places-to-shop” to “places to be,” a concept CPG brands are trying to get their arms around as DTC plays a growing role in the business. No longer is shopping an individual transaction; it has developed into an experience. 

From culinary spotlights to readings to metaverse integrations, the event will be highlighting these trends and brands across several categories: store design/visual merchandising, lighting, food service equipment, energy management, retail technology, retail marketing, and more.

Exhibitors will range the retail solutions gamut, including such providers as Blue Yonder, Checkpoint, Diebold Nixdorf, Epson, GK Software, Honeywell, NCR, Nedap, POS Tuning, Toshiba, Tyco, Verifone, Zebra, and many others. The full list of exhibitors can be found here.
