Grup Idea & Abessis as exhibitors at the retail fair EuroShop

From 26 February to 2 March, Grup Idea & Abessis participated as exhibitors at EuroShop 2023, the most important retail trade fair in the world. For five days, we welcomed professionals from the retail sector to our stand: technicians, suppliers, partners and customers in a very positive atmosphere of professional exchange and business opportunities. Many professionals came to learn about our work method, projects and works in retail as well as the scope of our services in design, architecture and construction, also in its “turnkey” modality, in Spain and throughout Europe.


Located in the Designers’ Village, the area reserved for architects’ offices and design studios, we shared space with nine other young and already consolidated agencies in the design and shopfitting sector, mainly from the United Kingdom and Germany. Of the nine exhibiting companies, only Grup Idea & Abessis came from Spain as an expert company in Design & Built.

During the fair, we had the opportunity to get to know the entire ecosystem of manufacturing companies, especially in the field of lighting, materials, finishes and their high quality solutions to improve the design and equipment of shops. Sustainability and digitalisation have been the most common cross-cutting themes in the retail products exhibited and offered at the fair, from shopping stands, mannequins and decorative busts to lighting and refrigeration equipment. We attended the programme of activities on the Store Design Stage and Retail Designer’s Stage to learn first-hand about the implications of sustainability and digitalisation in shop design and construction.

The fair closed its 21st edition with a successful turnout of more than 81,000 visitors and 1,830 exhibitors from 55 countries. “In view of the current challenges facing the retail trade, we are delighted that EuroShop has once again fulfilled its role as the world’s leading trade fair offering orientation and guidance”said Erhard Wienkamp, managing director of the trade fair, in a press release.. Messe Düsseldorf will host the next EuroShop from 22-26 February 2026.
