Exhibitors can now register online at for EuroCIS 2018, Europe’s leading trade fair for retail technology. Stand space allocation will begin in September 2017. Over 400 exhibitors and about 10,500 international trade visitors from the retail sector are expected to attend. EuroCIS will take place from February 27 – March 1, 2018 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Technology never sleeps and at EuroCIS 2018 an increasing number of solutions for addressing shoppers in a personalized manner will be presented since shoppers are becoming more demanding and want to be perceived as individuals. Playing an important role in this context are Location Based Services to send shoppers offers tailored to their needs directly to their mobile phones. In general, solutions that “individualize” and “personalize” products will become more important. Robotics and artificial intelligence will also be key topics. At EuroCIS 2018 the entire spectrum of IT solutions specifically geared to the retail sector will be on show: from omni-channel management, business analytics, payment systems, cash management and e-Commerce/e-Business solutions to ERP/supply chain management, mobile solutions and technologies as well as POS software/hardware and checkout management, digital marketing/digital signage, workforce management, loss prevention, article surveillance, weighing technology, food service and the IoT.

The exhibits will be complemented by the EuroCIS Forum and the Omnichannel Forum with current case studies, innovations and trends, presented by exhibitors and their customers in German and English. In addition, trade visitors have the opportunity to take 90-minute “Guided Innovation Tours” (German/English). Organized by Planet Retail these tours will focus on start-ups and companies with innovative product and process solutions.

The presentation of the popular retail technology awards europe (reta europe) by the EHI Retail Institute will be a highlight in the ancillary events program during EuroCIS 2018. These awards recognize the excellent and innovative use of information technology in retail. In addition the “Wissenschaftspreis Handel” will be presented jointly by EHI and GS1 during EuroCIS to honor outstanding scientific works that pick up on innovative ideas that are transferable to retail.
