Best Practices in Retail



One of the leading retail trade fairs, EuroShop 2020, was held in Düsseldorf, Sunday, February 16 through Thursday, February 20. Over 94,000 attendees, speakers, and exhibitors attended or participated in the event that showcased the latest products, trends, and best practices for all things retail. Two of the top themes for the event were linking online shopping with offline shopping and sustainability. Since the global retail industry is one of First Line Software’s core strategic markets, representatives from First Line Software also attended the event.

EuroShop reported that 70% of the EuroShop audience traveled to Düsseldorf from abroad. Some of the largest delegations came from countries such as Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand. In total, EuroShop 2020 conference attendees represented 142 countries. There were 2,300 exhibitors from 57 countries on-site to introduce their retail software solutions and services and attract new business opportunities.
