Simple and efficient beats complex and expensive

Jun 18, 2018

The combination of many innovations and trends at Nordstil creates a unique atmosphere which makes customers more interested in placing orders. In the Village in Hall A4, ten well-known brands will show how product presentations can be implemented using simple techniques and then reproduced at the point of sale (POS). In the Nordstil Forum, visitors will also find a wide range of insightful lectures on customer communication and POS design.

From 11 to 13 August 2018, ten well-known companies will show how trends and innovations in the retail sector can be presented attractively. Achieving a coherent overall concept rarely depends on complex installations. The key lies in finding easily implementable, creative and – ultimately – efficient design approaches. Visitors to this year's participants in the Village – Donkey Products, Frohstoff, Gift Company, Good olf friends, Nogallery, Paperproducts Design, Philippi, Räder, Raumgestalt and Sompex – will find plenty of inspiration. As part of the redevelopment of Hall A4, the Village will be given a new location on stands B61 and B71. “This year, once again, the proven Village concept will sparkle with a fresh look in a fresh location,” says Kathrin Völker, Managing Director of Räder. “In this special marketplace area, these ten companies will present Christmas goods and new products for the second half of the year, offering retailers imaginative ideas for presenting goods at the POS.”

Multifaceted lecture programme in the Nordstil Forum

Visitors will find further stimulating POS design ideas during the extensive series of lectures in the Nordstil Forum. The successful format will focus on a new topic on each day of the fair: On the first day, the emphasis will be on design, trends and innovations; on the following days, it will look at customer communication and sales expertise as well as omnichannel and shop concepts. Experts from the various fields will present the latest trends and show how they can be produced and staged effectively to turn interest into actual sales.

The wide-ranging and multifaceted programme is well worth a look and is attached as a PDF.

Nordstil will take place from 11 to 13 August 2018.
