|New trade fair: C-Shop Cologne|
The new European Convenience Show will present an innovative platform for products, services and concepts that meet the needs of modern convenience stores.
Koelnmesse will expand its line-up of trade fairs in the food segment in 2012 with the addition of C-Shop Cologne – The European Convenience Show. The trade fair, which will take place from November 4-6, 2012, will focus on convenience stores as an increasingly important sales channel.
This new event at the Cologne exhibition centre will be a showcase for shop concepts that provide consumers with fast, flexible and attractive “to go” offerings for all situations.
“Convenience catering will also be among the themes covered at C-Shop Cologne, which offers, for the first time in Europe, the growing convenience stores market a business-focused and dialogue-oriented platform,” says Katharina C Hamma, chief operating officer of Koelnmesse.
C-Shop Cologne will present products from the food, non-food and services segments that are intended especially for convenience stores. This will include franchise concepts, food service and stationery, magazines and tobacco products, and service providers from the security, IT, payment systems, full service, consulting and shop fittings sectors.
