The world of retail is in full-fledged evolution, with the rise of e-commerce and the shifts in consumer behavior. To remain attractive and competitive in this new retail environment, MAISON&OBJET PARIS offers at L’ESPACE RETAIL major tools to help you stand out and gain market share. The show is off to discover new trends from around the world, bringing them back to retailers so that they can get inspired. This is a rare opportunity to share inspiring experiences and get top-flight advice from experts on hand during workshop-debates.

In September 2016, you’ll find this space in the very heart of hall 6 (F96-G95), in the midst of « OBJETS » section of the show!

Workshop-debates to get advice, , retail trends to find your way and publications to learn from

Retail professionals and coaches will take turns every hour giving you the keys to success for your business.

Keeping up with digital technology, point-of-sale management, merchandising, layout, emerging trends in retail…these are the many subjects connected to retail business that will be covered in the workshop-debates, lasting 15 to 20 minutes each.

4 retail trends will be developed on the space :

  • Archi shops
    In Milan, Paris, Berlin, Marseille, Bordeaux and Brussels, architects open at the foot of their dwelling or agency, retail spaces dedicated to their own creation of objects, tableware, or office accessories coupled with a signed scenography and a creative and targeted packaging. Real cutting edge ideas.
