EuroShop 2023 drew to a successful close in Düsseldorf, Germany on March 2, 2023. The retail trade fair attracted 1,830 exhibitors. During the five days of EuroShop, more than 81,000 trade visitors from five continents travelled to the event.
"Especially in view of the current challenges in retail, we are delighted that EuroShop once again met its remit as the world's leading trade fair offering guidance and orientation," said Erhard Wienkamp, managing director at Messe Düsseldorf. Highly satisfied with the results of the trade fair, he added: "We owe our exhibitors a great compliment. With their innovative power they have once again proved a magnet for the whole industry."

Attending from 55 nations, exhibitors unanimously report extraordinarily good contacts and a clear willingness to invest on the part of visitors. The proportion of retail visitors rose once again by 9% to over 50%. 68% of the EuroShop audience came from abroad. Particularly positive was the increase in visitors from Southeast Asia, Africa and North America. Altogether, trade visitors from 141 countries travelled to EuroShop 2023, including from as far afield as Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
Sustainability was the common theme running through all areas of this year's EuroShop. Exhibitors impressively demonstrated that sustainable store fittings not only contribute to climate protection, but also offer plenty of material for storytelling – from innovative, biodegradable store fitting materials to display mannequins made from raw materials garnered from ocean waste. Furthermore, the topic of energy savings took centre stage, especially in the refrigeration cabinet and store lighting segments.
The next EuroShop will be held in Düsseldorf from February 22 to 26, 2026.www.euroshop-tradefair.com
