Since 1990 (the German Reunification) Prof.B.Hallier is inviting permanently retailers and experts from the former socialistic countries to visit the exhibitions EuroShop and EuroCIS (LINK) or to go jointly on store-checks to learn via applied sciences the "real world of trade" - or last but not least to get connected with dual education institutions.

20.04.2018 : Recommerce versus IoT

In its latest edition Retail Asia points the focus to a hype of "second-hand": it also covers in Asia luxury fashion! The new terminus is even connected with the idea to preserve environment and to reduce waste.

To upgrade margins on the other hand retailers could use the Internet of Things (IoT) for their infrastructure. Marketing can combine IoT with mirrors, digital, walls, dressing rooms, quick checkouts. IoT can be part of loyalty programs and bridge bricks-and-mortar retailers with e-commerce. Prof.B.Hallier is convinced that those marketing and technology trends have been well covered by the development of the exhibition duo EuroShop and EuroCIS (see: YouTube); for Asia the Special "C Star" was developed in Shanghai/China (Contact)
