Without children no future – Kitz4kids

by Jelmar de Vries in Hamburg

Eurotrade Fair finds it important to be socially involved. That is why we regularly support small charities, where people we or one of our exhibitors know personally are involved and we know that every Euro is well spent. We hope that you will help us support the following charity!

Kitz4Kids – A Hamburg foundationlogo-kitz-4kids
Since we are organizing our trade fair in Hamburg this time, it will be a good fit to support a Hamburg based charity. Therefore, we have chosen Kitz4kids. Kitz4kids was created by a collaboration of Hamburg doctors, merchants, lawyers and freelancers with different professions.

Without children no futurechildren-kitz4kids
Hamburg is beautiful and rich. Nevertheless every 5th child is affected by poverty. These are more than 50.000 children. Deficiency, exclusion and lack of perspective characterize the environment of these children. Often even the hot meal is missing during the day.

Hamburg companies want to help!
Hamburg companies, as well as private individuals, want to help! Eurotrade Fair also supports Kitz4kids! We have donated €1.327,- to Kitz4kids. You can support them too!

Do you also want to support Kitz4kids and help the children? Contact Kitz4kids for more information:

Project Namaste

Eurotrade Fair finds it important to be socially involved. That is why we regularly support small charities, where people we or one of our exhibitors know personally are involved and we know that every Euro is well spent. We hope that you will help us support the following charity!

“If nobody does anything, nothing ever happens”233

Bram & Rinnie are ambassador of Project Namaste. They raise money so Indonesian children can be operated on a cleft palate. They make sure the children can travel from Bali to Bram & Rinnie’s ‘hospital’ where they are being helped.

“It’s our duty to help other people”

If we are on holiday, we see it as our duty to help other people. We ourselves live in a prosperous country. We do not have to worry about anything, because everything is within reach. During our vacations we become aware of the bad situation of other people.-Bram & Rinnie de Groot (Project Namaste)

We have collected €865,-!

UK is about to hit a Christmas spending record in 2016!


Christmas is getting closer! All year long, retailers, retail organizations, web-shops and supermarket chains have prepared themselves for, among others, Christmas! Meanwhile, stores and web-shops are filled with Christmas products! Gifts, food & drinks, decoration items and much more.

There are several ways to expand your product range. One way is by visiting trade shows for import goods and promotional articles (stocklots). Here you will find large stocks of consumer goods available for immediate sale at rock-bottom prices!
All kinds of buyers make their move at such fairs to expand their product range. An example of such a trade fair is the Eurotrade Fair. Eurotrade Fair is a unique platform that brings together Europe’s largest and leading stocklot wholesalers.

Christmas in Europe

Across Europe, consumers spend a lot of money on food & drink, decorations & gifts in the period before Christmas.
The UK outnumbers every other European country with their high average of Christmas spendings.

Over €92bn in 2016

Brexit or no Brexit, Christmas will always be a peak holiday for spending and this year is no different. UK is about to hit a Christmas spending record of more than €92bn in 2016.
It is expected for 2016 that their Christmas spending will be around €952,55 per household. This will go towards food and drink, travel, decorations and gifts. Half of the budget will be spent on gifts!

(Real business (2016). UK Christmas spending to hit record £77.56bn in 2016, http://realbusiness.co.uk)

Although UK Christmas spending will only be up 1.9 per cent year-on-year, UK households are set to spend almost double the European average. Comparatively across Europe, the average spend will be €634,80 in 2016.

Eurotrade Fair and sustainability

by Jelmar de Vries in Allgemein


The world is changing
The world is changing and the consumers’ awareness about sustainability continues to grow. Sustainability
is not just important for people and the planet, but nowadays it is also vital for business success. It is of
great importance for companies to respond to this.

Everyone contributes in its own way to a cleaner environment and a better social wellbeing. Companies
contribute by taking responsibility for the company’s effects on environmental and social wellbeing:
‘Corporate Social Responsibility’.

Eurotrade sustainability

Also we have our own way of contributing to sustainability.

Products that have been written off by producers or importers for various reasons, are getting a second life
thanks to our trade fairs. Such products are called: Stocklots. Our fairs are unique because the focus is
on stocklots only!

Products offered on the Eurotrade Fair consist of stocklots, overstock, bankruptcy goods, branded goods
and bulk goods.

Eurotrade Fair attracts major buyers from the following sectors:
Retail organizations, DIY stores, Warehouses, Furniture stores, Discounters, Supermarket chains, Webshops,
Individual sales points, Garden centers, Pharmacies, And more…

Boost in sales during big events!

by Jelmar de Vries in Allgemein

Header news

In the UK, supermarkets have seen the first growth in sales in almost a year, according to the latest Nielsen report.

The big sport event ‘Euro 2016’ contributed to a 6.2-per-cent year-on-year increase in the sales of alcohol (including beer and wine) over the four-week period ending 18 June 2016. There was also an increase (4.2 per cent) in the sales of crisps and snacks. This is also attributed to Euro 2016.
(European Supermarket Magazine (2016). Nielsen Report Shows Significant Boos in UK Supermarket Sales During Euro 2016, http://www.esmmagazine.com/)

In most of the European countries, Euro 2016 has contributed to an increase of the consumer goods like alcohol, chips and snacks. Particularly in countries participating in the Euro 2016.

Big (sport) events have a relatively large impact on the sales of (mainly) supermarkets. But also companies that sell, for example merchandise, toys, sport equipment, etc. feel the impact in their sales.
Because of these large impacts, it is important for entrepreneurs/companies to respond on events like this. If the event is relevant to them, they can prepare their assortment for such events and take advantage of it!

This certainly applies to the Olympic Games which begin on the 5th of August. A big event that is known worldwide! Are you and your assortment ready for the Olympic Games?

Just as entrepreneurs/companies adapt their assortments to big events as Euro 2016 and the Olympic Games, they also adapt their assortment to the different seasons of the year. An assortment that fits in well with a season, often meets the needs of the customer.
The advantage of the seasons is that they come back every year at the same time. A good preparation is required and in this case is certainly possible.
