Messe Frankfort’s digital platforms helps retailers with emerging trends

The online platform Conzoom Solutions regularly offers new content that gives retailers resources in the form of expert tips, podcasts or videos. In March, the style agency bora.herke.palmisano will provide video contributions on Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld as well as Creativeworld Trends 22+.

Upcoming trends related to colors, materials, designs, and handicraft techniques will be noted. Additionally, discussions on how these trends will impact consumers at home, at all festive occasions, in the home office or office, and how retailers can utilize trends for window dressing and product range design in the shop.

“After the cancellation of our consumer goods trade fairs in January and February 2022 due to the pandemic, we would like to quench the thirst for knowledge at least to some extent on a digital level; knowing full well that there is no substitute for inspiration on site,” said Julia Uherek, vice president, Consumer Goods Fairs. “We are all the more pleased that we were able to win over some top-class speakers from the planned Academy programs for contributions on Conzoom Solutions. This will shorten the time until our real reunion in Frankfurt in 2023 and until then we will regularly provide valuable tips for business success in these extremely challenging times.”

Topics & Speakers

Product Management

Contributions on exciting topics and best practices are planned. For example, Prof. Dr. Gerald Lembke, business coach, book author and keynote speaker, will soon take a look into the future and talk about the demands on product management for younger generations.

Digital Space

In addition, Frank Rehme, retail expert gmvteam, will address how visibility is strengthened in the digital space.


The future topics of sustainability and new work will also be examined in detail. The podcast with Mimi Sewalski, managing director of Avocadostore, Germany’s largest online shop for green products, is just online. Throughout the year, experts will show new ways in which retailers can manage their business in a more targeted manner and provide answers to questions that are currently of concern to the retail sector.
