EuroCIS, The Leading Trade Fair for Retail Technology, will again post an increase in 2016 after its record last year: the 100,000 square feet mark of booked net exhibition space has already been exceeded (EuroCIS 2015: 98,000 sq.ft.). Over 340 exhibitors from 24 countries will present innovative technology solutions for the retail sector from February 23 – 25, 2016 at the exhibition center in Düsseldorf, Germany. About 9,000 international visitors are expected.

EuroCIS is a “must-go” event for the decision-makers in the industry since retail technology has never been more important for retailers. Companies invest more in retail-specific IT solutions in order to stay attractive to their shoppers who increasingly switch between channels. Retailers should make the largest range of services available across all channels and take advantage of the omni-channel megatrend in order to stay competitive.

EuroCIS 2016 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 bi-lingual (German/English) talks, Best Practice examples will be shared. In the Omnichannel Area, predominantly young companies will be represented including Bluetrade E-Commerce, Inventorum, Mangold & Mangold, Phizzard GmbH and Tradebyte Software.

In addition, visitors can find start-ups with interesting solutions at a stand sponsored by BMWI (German Ministry of Economics and Technology): Apinauten GmbH, CashConcepts Europe GmbH, Fehn IT-Solutions, Gesture Powered GmbH, metoda GmbH, GmbH, SayWay GmbH and 42reports GmbH.

After its successful launch in 2015, EuroCIS 2016 will again offer the Guided Innovation Tours (90 minutes) to selected exhibitors, organized by PlanetRetail. The focus will be on start-ups and companies with innovative product and process solutions. Registration at:

The Schlumberger Retail-Lounge in Hall 10 will provide the possibility for networking in a pleasant atmosphere – with a Happy Hour on the first and second trade fair day starting at 4:30 pm.
