More than 25 years ago, The Store Fixturing Show made its debut in Chicago, marking the start of a long line of successful partnerships and the beginning of a fantastic source for retailers the world over, now known as Globalshop. GlobalShop 2019 will be held June 25 – 27, 2019 at McCormick Place in Chicago, and once again is on track to provide retailers with all that is needed to outfit their store, and keep up with design trends, even down to emerging technology needs.
For any store owner looking to update the look of their store, or perhaps open a new location, this is a show not to be missed. The once yearly event is the retail industry’s only venue combining experts and products in shopper marketing, visual merchandising, retail technology, and of course, store design.
Keeping to the show’s traditions of constantly innovating, this year the Globalshop Show will join in with sister trade shows IRCE, the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, and RFID Journal LIVE! Retail, the world’s only event dedicated specifically to RFID retail, to form an entirely new one-stop retail technology and design super show known as RetailX.
Over 10,000 attendees will walk the show floors this summer, browsing through the more than 500 exhibitors at GlobalShop. What kind of exhibitors will retailers find at GlobalShop? From phone and tablet security providers to rolling basket manufacturers to shelf and product designs and signage of every possible description. If you’re in the market for retail fixtures for your store, this is your market. As in past years, the show pavilions will be organized based on buying needs, including store fixturing, store design and operations, visual merchandising, digital and retail technology, and more. For first time visitors, GlobalShop recommends planning your visit in advance, and makes it simple to do by offering a free online planning and appointment setting tool called GlobalShop Connect. Simply register for the show and set up your free account; the service will match you up to exhibitors that meet the criteria and demographic information you submit in your profile.
Let’s not forget the jam-packed informational sessions offered at the show. This year the GlobalShop sessions have been newly branded “Pop Up Talks” and will cover everything retailers need to know to navigate the world of both brick & mortar retail, as well as digital retail, ecommerce, and ‘phygital’ (physical/digital combination) stores. Also on offer will be fantastic daily keynote speakers. Doug Stephens, Retail and Consumer Futurist, internationally acclaimed author and founder of Retail Prophet will speak on Tuesday, June 25, Andy Dunn, Senior Vice President, Digital Consumer Brands of Walmart U.S. Ecommerce on Wednesday, June 26, and Susan Tynan, Framebridge Founder & CEO on Thursday, June 27.
The combination of the GlobalShop show with RFID Journal LIVE! Retail will also allow retailers to experience a one-of-a-kind conference within the show. Built from scratch by the experts at Retail TouchPoints, the leading publication covering omnichannel strategies and digital transformation.

GlobalShop takes place June 25 through 27 at McCormick Place, Chicago. Retailers and brands receive free expo hall passes. For additional information on conference schedules and sessions, hotel and travel details, and the Retail TouchPoints conference, register at www.globalshop.org.
