EuroShop 2020, the leading trade fair for the investment needs of the retail sector, has also come to a successful end for us. For five days, our experts, LS Retail and other partners had the opportunity to present the unified commerce solution LS Central and its innovative enhancements, and to establish contacts. The trade show was highly frequented, with 94,000 visitors who came to learn about the range of products, trends and concepts for retailers and their partners that were on display in 16 exhibition halls.
According to the organizer, around 70 percent of the audience came from abroad this year, a significant increase compared with the previous event in 2017. TSO-DATA was also able to inspire interested parties from a wide range of nations. "This high level of international interest shows more than clearly the dynamism of the global trading world," says Maciej Drozdz, Business Consultant at TSO-DATA Nürnberg GmbH. Even some of our existing customers took the opportunity to visit us at our stand and talk to us personally.
"The success of online trading is really spurring retailers on: They have realized that they have to give customers reasons to come to the store beyond the product range. Competition has pushed the entire retail trade up in its level. Investments are being made in shop fitting to create worlds of experience. Digitization in retail is booming. On the one hand, it enables retailers to offer their customers even more services and to link online and offline channels with each other, and on the other hand it simplifies processes, logistics and much more". We agree with this statement by Michael Gerling, Chairman of the EuroShop Advisory Board and Managing Director of the EHI Retail Institute Cologne, and are pleased to support this with our solutions.
We were able to ascertain a high level of satisfaction among our trade fair visitors, which is also supported by the figures announced: 96 percent of the trade fair visitors were satisfied with their visit to the fair. The same number confirmed the outstanding position of EuroShop as a trend barometer, networking platform and the largest event in the retail industry.
The next EuroShop will take place in 2023, from 26 February to 2 March, in Düsseldorf. TSO-DATA will certainly make a note of the date now in order to be there again.
