EuroShop has announced a cooperation agreement with Worms University Faculty of International Management/Retail Management, whereby students will have the opportunity to participate in the trade fair's next edition, which takes place in Düsseldorf from 26 February to 2 March.
As part of the agreement, Worms University will have its own stand at EuroShop, at which student dissertations will be displayed.
International Management/Retail Management Faculty
The university established its International Management/Retail Management Faculty, which prepares graduates specifically for careers in retail, in 1978.
As part of their curriculum, students will prepare for and actively participate in the trade fair, as well as develop stand and marketing materials – an involvement that will expand their knowledge and enable them to acquire valuable experience in project management.
“Skilled labour shortage is also a burning issue for retailers," commented Prof. Dr. Nektarios Bakakis, professor of retail management. "At Worms University we see the need to impart course content in an as vocational way as possible, so that our graduates can contribute to their company’s success as soon as possible."
March 1 will see EuroShop and Worms University organise a 'University Day' where students from universities with connections to retail can visit EuroShop at discounted rates and register for special tours. During these guided tours, participants are introduced to selected companies addressing various focal trade fair themes.
“Promoting young talents has always been close to our heart and the cooperation with various universities for EuroShop already looks back on a long tradition,” said Elke Moebius, director, EuroShop.
“Very often it is these young talents who provide key impulses for retail owing to their fresh, unbiased approach and new generation perspective.”
EuroShop is open to trade visitors from Sunday, 26 February to Thursday, 2 March 2023, daily from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. For more information visit www.euroshop-tradefair.com.
