“We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to another action-packed Showcase this year,” said Paul Tyler, CEO of CIH. “Everything about this year’s event is geared towards helping our Members & Agents cultivate success in a challenging retail environment. We are providing the best space to see the latest innovations, build great relationships with the brands they are selling, as well as find out about the promotions, new initiatives, support, and training that’s available from both us and the manufacturers. Our return after the pandemic saw Showcase come to life once again. This year we want to build on this even further and create an event that is really going to provide a great amount of value and resources for our members and agents."
A record number of companies will be supporting the event, exhibiting a full range of domestic appliances, televisions, computing, and home technologies, amongst other electrical products. Among the 40 plus brands attending will be: Beko; Blomberg; CDA; Liebherr; Haier; Hoover; Hisense; Creda; ASKO; Vax; Dyson; Product Care Group; Caple; Rangemaster; Bosch; Neff; Siemens; Rangemaster; Whirlpool; Hotpoint; LG; Sony; Smeg; Shark/Ninja; AEG; Samsung; plus many others
The Euronics stand will be staged to reflect a real home, highlighting the trends that led them to recommend the products on display. Euronics agents will also be able to check out the ‘store’ area where they can see the ideal store solutions, and a line-up of exclusive products that cannot be found anywhere else.
Additionally, the 2023 showcase will see the launch of Marketplace, Euronics’ new e-commerce solution that has the ability to showcase a wider range of members’ stock, offers and services.
