Summer Nordstil: Finally space for inspiration and exchange again

28 Apr 2021

Nordstil is an important place for retailers to order, network and be inspired. Especially in a time when online determines our lives, personal exchange is missing. That's why real encounters are so important at the moment. Visitors will find creative ideas and exciting impulses in the Village. Trendy home accessories will be on display at the Promperu special presentation, and the Buddelhelden will be inviting visitors to taste their products in Hall B2.

They are design-oriented and come up with quite a few ideas for the retail trade: From July 24 to 26, 2021, six renowned companies will be showing exciting and practical ideas for assortment design in the Village at the new location in Hall B5 and offering space for discussions. In the successful special area, they will not only show current trends and innovations, but also present an inspiring product mix. "One thing is certain: There is a strong desire for the industry to exchange ideas in person and on site. We all long to present our novelties to a wider audience and need the professional feedback for further development. The informal exchange of experiences with visitors and fellow exhibitors is so important and unique at trade shows – that's something that's very lacking at the moment. That's why we are looking forward to good conversations and haptic shopping experiences at Nordstil," says Christian Schmidt, Managing Director of the Gift Company. In addition to the Gift Company, the companies bLuxe, Frohstoff, Good old friends, ppd Paperproducts and Sompex are participating.

Fresh ideas will be on display at the Promperu special presentation in Hall B5. Eight established Peruvian companies want to conquer the German market with their trendy accessories such as bedspreads, cushions or rugs made of alpaca wool. The sustainable products come in plain colors and motifs.

Each noble drop has its own special story. The area of the Buddelhelden is one of the contact points of the Nordstil. Exhibitors of wine and spirits such as Destille Kaltenthaler, Hafencity, Nork, St. Kilian and Tastillery explain the concept behind their signature drinks over a glass in Hall B2. The area invites to tasting, exchange and ordering.

Summer Nordstil will take place from July 24 to 26, 2021.
