With only days to go before EuroShop opens in Düsseldorf, Germany on February 26, the Chute Gerdeman team is busy organizing their lists of the “must sees.” The last exhibition, held in 2008, attracted more than 104,000 visitors from 93 countries. With numbers like that, it’s no surprise that EuroShop is the industry’s largest international trade fair.
Top of our list is a visit to ECOpark, the new sustainable building and furnishings area. We’re also looking forward to MQ Mannequin City, and EuroShop Designer Village, which will showcase the latest retail projects and innovative and distinctive design concepts. Of course, we’ll be touring EuroConcept (fixtures and lighting); EuroCIS (technology); EuroExpo (event construction), and all the 17 other buildings that keep earning this show its reputation as the event-of-the-year.
Stay tuned for daily updates live from the show. Bess Anderson, Director of Visual Strategy and Brian Shafley, President and Chief Creative Director, will be on the ground in Düsseldorf reporting for us. In the meantime, check out this photo gallery of some of our favorites from the 2008 EuroShop EXPO.
