Nordstil 2019: Plenty of inspiration for retailers

Anyone searching for unusual accessories shouldn’t miss the regional ordering days in Hamburg: From 12 to 14 January 2019 around 970 exhibitors will present retailers with an incomparable selection of items that are both beautiful and trendy. Nearly 170 exhibitors will be coming from outside Germany, particularly Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden. Retailers will find a large range of products within Style & Design, Home & Garden, Souvenirs, Gifts & Stationery and Jewellery & Fashion.

You can order, for instance, home accessories in popular themes and colours, gifts for children, beautiful stationery and notebooks, trendy jewellery and a wide variety of seasonal home accessories. 

“Retailers will find that Nordstil is an ideal starting point for successful business. Here they can find a wide selection of products for the forthcoming spring and summer business – and indeed right at the beginning of the business year,” says Binu Thomas, head of Nordstil. “As before, it will be ‘Hamburg Ahoy’ for 78 of our member firms who will be presenting their latest collections at Nordstil – a major fixture in the trade fair calendar, and, for us as EVL exhibitors, an event that also opens doors to markets in northern Germany and Scandinavia. We are looking forward to Hamburg, Nordstil and, above all, to the many well-qualified trade visitors,” says Lars Adler, Chairman of EVL, the European Lifestyle Association.

New ideas to blow away the cobwebs – the complementary programme at Nordstil

Featuring numerous special sections and talks, the complementary programme at Nordstil has long been an indispensable success factor. The Nordstil Forum in Hall B1.0 consists of a wide-ranging programme of talks, providing plenty of unusual ideas for POS design. The forum, which has been so successful in the past, will again discuss burning issues for bricks-and-mortar shops during the three days of the trade fair. One major highlight which is always a special feature for anyone seeking inspiration is the Northern Lights area, now in Hall A3. About 40 creative companies will be showing their own special trend and design products, aimed at a young and ambitious audience. Eleven companies, one meeting point: The Village in Hall A4 is one of the first ports of call at Nordstil. One outstanding attraction will be a highly successful joint exhibition where handpicked manufacturers from Germany will present their latest collections in an inspiring product mix. The Buddelhelden (Bottle Heroes) will focus entirely on selling wines and spirits as a complementary product range. The area gives visitors the chance to sample the various products, to exchange ideas and to place orders.

Nordstil will be held from 12 to 14 January 2019.
