Listen, learn and buy

Diego Weber, weinverkauft!

How do you create a multimedia shopping experience with mini-podcasts on the wine shelf or price list? Welcome to a world of staff-free, wine sales inspired by audio guides used by museums.

At the counter, there will be a practical demonstration of how podcast advertising works, how it differs from established forms of advertising and how it can be integrated into your marketing mix.

Counter 1

Dispensing technology 2.0

Andreas Neumann, Knoeppel GmbH

Knoeppel will showcase dispenser concepts that support wine advice and sales, and can be used in retail and gastronomy.

Counter 2

Increase sales with wine and events

Claudia Stern, Wine & Glory

At this counter, experts will present ideas for wine-related offerings (e.g. chocolate, oils, delicatessen, etc.) as well as sustainable and attractive packaging (including color and material concepts that are easy to use). They will also provide an insight into how private labels can be successfully implemented and long-term customer loyalty assured.

Shedding light on energy management

In cooperation with the University of Kassel, the start-up "Öko Vision" has developed a tool that can help slash energy costs by up to 25 per cent. The energy management breakthrough, which can monitor and analyze electricity consumption in real time, will be presented at the counter.

It can also detect energy peaks, quickly and easily identify potential device faults, and create sustainability reports with just one click. It keeps an eye on your energy consumption too!

Counter 5

Anne Pfannschmidt, Alexandra Gundlach, Bestes Pferd im Stall GmbH & Co. KG

Tradition meets innovation: discover sustainable corrugated cardboard solutions for winegrowers at our counter. From individual wine cartons and sales displays at the point of sale (POS) to environmentally friendly bag-in-boxes and patented sustainable bottle shipping packaging - everything from the heart of the Black Forest. Sustainability, quality and family tradition in every fiber.

Counter 9

Smart wine presentation

Andreas Neumann, Fa. Knoeppel GmbH

The shopfitter Knoeppel developed an efficient presentation concept for EDEKA Zierles that allows for a higher number of items in the same space. The wine department was given a clearer layout without significantly changing the surroundings. The Knoeppel furniture integrates seamlessly into the existing furniture, which meant that the floor could remain unchanged. When fully stocked, the furniture can be easily pushed aside with a pallet truck, for example for customer events.
