EuroCIS 2016 breaks 10,000 m² record. Shopping across all channels – omni-channel solutions conquer retail.
EuroCIS, The Leading Trade Fair for Retail Technology, will again post an increase next year after its record year 2015. The 10,800 m² mark of booked net exhibition space is already exceeded (EuroCIS 2015: 9,130m² net). 408 exhibitors from 29 countries will be presenting all innovative technology solutions revolving around retail from 23 to 25 February 2016. To the tune of 9,000 international visitors are expected.
EuroCIS 2015 Impressionen
EuroCIS is a “must-go” event for the decision-makers in the industry because retail technology has never been more important for retailers. Companies invest more in retail-specific IT solutions in order to stay attractive for their shoppers, who themselves are extremely well “geared up” and networked switching back and forth between channels in real time. Retailers must make the largest array of services available across all channels because those retailers missing out on the omni-channel megatrend will face tough times in future.
EuroCIS will provide an overview of current strategies and solutions for optimum networking of all channels in both the specifically created Omnichannel Area and in the integrated Omnichannel Forum. In exciting talks (bi-lingual in German/English) Best Practice examples will be shared. In the Omnichannel Area predominantly young enterprises will be represented such as Bluetrade E-Commerce, Inventorum, Mangold & Mangold, Phizzard GmbH and Tradebyte Software, to name but a few.
In addition to this, visitors can find start-ups with extremely interesting solutions at an already fully booked-up stand sponsored by BMWI, the German Ministry of Economics and Technology, namely Apinauten GmbH, CashConcepts Europe GmbH, Fehn IT-Solutions, Gesture Powered GmbH, metoda GmbH, pro.net.expert. GmbH, SayWay GmbH and 42reports GmbH.
After its successful launch in 2015, EuroCIS 2016 will also once again offer the Guided Innovation Tours (lasting 90 minutes), organised by PlanetRetail for visitors calling on selected exhibitors. The focus here will be on start-ups and companies with innovative product and process solutions.
