Jerzy Woźniak
Architect (Modelina Architekci), Poznan (Poland)

"Being one of three winners of Euroshop Retail Design Award has been a huge surprise for us. It is the best proof that strong, holistic and coherent ideas allow to create a memorable and interesting retail space, no matter the size of the shop or popularity of the brand. The award itself became an impulse for a short and intense trip to Shanghai to attend the glamorous rooftop gala. Thank you!"  


Ken Nisch
Chairman (JGA), Southfield (USA)

“To be included in such a rarified group of brands, retailers, and innovators was most exciting for the JGA team. We thank EuroShop RetailDesign Awards for this important and coveted award. The ability to work with great partners, The Hershey Company, Canadian Niagara, and the MGM group, was a key element not only of the professional satisfaction, but of the creative energy that is so much part of the Hershey’s Chocolate World Las Vegas experience.”


Dan Butler
Former Vice President National Retail Federation (NRF), Washington D.C. (USA)

"The EuroShop Retail Design Awards are unique in that they cultivate nominations from all seven continents and every year manage to find the best of the best in store design projects from design firms of all kinds. These awards help to promote retail store design beyond the design community and help to promote the importance of design to the entire global retail community. Most importantly the awards recognize excellence in design that is truly worthy of praise."


Ignaz Gorischek
Vice President, Store Development Neiman Marcus Properties Group

"What a lovely evening, this event is the only one where you can meet some of the the top designers on our field today. The electricity in the room has an after effect for days! Truly a memorable experience."


Martin Pérez
Director Store Planning, Servicios Liverpool, S.A. DE C.V.

"Liverpool is thrilled to be part of a contest in which great designers from many parts of the world participate, the Gala was a great opportunity to get inspired by other people's work and to expand our network, and we are really looking forward to Euroshop in 2014 to get more inspiration."


EuroShop is the world’s biggest trade fair for capital goods in the retail sector. The topics at EuroShop range from shopfitting, store design, architecture, lighting, refrigerating technology, through visual merchandising, display advertising and POP marketing, to IT and security technology. It was launched by EHI in 1966, since when it has been staged by Messe Düsseldorf with EHI’s technical support.

As part of the trade fair, EHI and Messe Düsseldorf have presented the EuroShop Retail Design Award (ERDA) for the three most convincing store concepts worldwide since 2008.


Award categories have deliberately not been defined so as to enable projects to enter the contest irrespective of sector, location and retail format and thus to reflect the whole variety of international retail design.

Please consider: It is not suitable to submit shopping centers as a project, since shopping centers include many different stores and designs while this award solely evaluates the interior design of one single store/department store/restaurant etc.

Criteria for entries

The projects should excel in the following criteria from your point of view:

It should be a consistent store concept with clear communication of the product range, effective addressing of the target group and a successful mix of architecture, colours, materials, lighting and visual merchandising which clearly convey the establishment’s idea/story to the customer.

  • The projects must not be older than 1½ years at the time of the award presentation.
  • A company can submit a maximum of 4 projects.
  • Entries can be submitted in German or English language.
Who can take part?

Entries can be submitted by retailers, designers, architects, shopfitting companies or suppliers to the shopfitting industry, as well as the committee of experts.
