About Focusplaza

Meet, inspire and discover: for more than 20 years that has been our added value. The link to better business is understanding and knowing each other. Not just talking or listening, but visiting inspiring places (national and international) and being informed by leading peers with business sense and a clear vision. That’s what sets people in motion.

Focusplaza is an independent network organisation, with three business units: focus groups, inspiration tours and workshops. They all have the same goal: to share inspiration and knowledge.

Inspiration tours

Did you know that the ‘difference’ where everyone is looking for, can be found in the streets of any city? Rome, Paris, London, Stockholm, Istanbul and Amsterdam – all cities with a great history in the field of retail. We would like to invite you and your team to step away from your desks to show you inspiration in the field.

In the erratic FMCG- and retail-industry, there is always a need for relevant insights in current trends.

Focusplaza provides learning by seeing and doing, to ensure that participants can apply the obtained knowledge in their own daily business.

How to deal with…
Often, Dutch manufacturers and suppliers look beyond national borders, because they are very interested in the philosophy, procurement and positioning of international retailers.

How to deal with… is an inspiring session for executives, export managers, product managers, (trade) marketers and account managers, where they share knowledge, exchange experiences and introduce Dutch manufacturers /suppliers to international retailers and vice versa, to generate business for the future.
