For the first time outside the UK, bar-restaurant The Alchemist is serving its drinks and food in Berlin. The cocktails as well as the design of the location are described as “experimental” and “multisensory experiences.” Simon Potts, CEO of The Alchemist, sees The Playce as the perfect location due to its centrality and the mix of tourists, shoppers, locals and professionals in the area.
The first Conscious Fashion Store of Peek & Cloppenburg Düsseldorf also benefits from this. The fact that sustainability is becoming increasingly important is demonstrated by the company in its new store, which combines more conscious fashion with more sustainable action on three floors and 3,000 sq m of trends.
Moreover, the Retail Garage also has its eye on the future: the joint project of the Mittelstand-Digital Zentrum Handel, the Handelsverband Deutschland e.V. (HDE) and the EHI Retail Institute launched the showroom for the future of retail. Here, connected commerce, artificial intelligence and shopfitting come together to show the new digital options for retail. At the showroom, retail entrepreneurs, manufacturers as well as service providers and multipliers can share their knowledge and exchange ideas with experts on innovations in the industry.
