EuroCIS and Omnichannel Forums: Detailed Lecture Programme Online!




When EuroShop, the World’s No. 1 Retail Trade Fair, is held in Düsseldorf every 3 years, EuroCIS (organised as an annual stand-alone trade fair in the years in between) forms one of seven dimensions of the trade fair. Continuing in 2017,575 exhibitors (occupying 18,500 m²) out of the total 2,400 from 61 countries account for the Retail Technology Dimension of EuroShop 2017 with 126,000 m² net exhibition space. Here the global range of IT solutions specifically geared to retail will be represented almost completely.


The proven EuroCIS and Omnichannel Forumsadd tremendous value for visitors, especially those who are retail IT decision makers. In brief talks delivered between 6 and 9 March, current practical examples and projects and trends revolving around retail technology will be presented. EuroShop trade visitors have complimentary access to the two forums in Hall 6, providing them with opportunities todiscover the latest developments. Exhibitors and their retail partners will jointly introduce visitors to the latest approaches and innovative solutions which have been implemented.


The themes covered at EuroCIS are as diversified as the topicsaddressed at the forums:
