IFES to Present 'Global Village' at EuroShop 2017
The International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services (IFES) will
present the first-ever "IFES Global Village" at EuroShop, the leading trade show for shop-fitting and exhibition
design, March 5-9, in Dusseldorf, Germany. The IFES Global Village, (Hall 4, Stand F36) will consist of eighteen
member companies and together with the IFES Association Management team, will meet with partners, members
and attendees from around the globe.
"Because IFES represents a global collaboration network, hospitality and cordiality have always been very
important to IFES," notes Uta Goretzky, managing director of IFES. "The Global Village will feature catering for the
entire duration of the EuroShop exhibition. This is meant to encourage visitors to relax; and to return."
In addition to being a hub for international networking, the Global Village will also feature a marketplace of
innovation. "It's a prototype booth," remarks Goretzky, "Many of the materials used to in the construction of this
stand have never been used like this in Germany." The Global Village will include carbon fiber-coated ceramic
surfaces, a semi-transparent LED surface screen, and visitor-tracking technology, allowing us to compile
information on activity in the booth."
Besides the Global Village, IFES is also the Official Content Partner of the Expo + Event Forum, a free lecture series
on news, trends, innovations and best practices, running concurrently with EuroShop exhibition hours, in Hall 4.
