Tech-news MediaMarkt Tech Village comes to Rotterdam

Written by Mathilde Simon

Good news for all tech lovers! This autumn, the MediaMarkt will open a Tech Village in the city centre. The store in the current location will be completely transformed and will be a mecca for anyone who loves the latest technology.

Milaan was de eerste stad waar de MediaMarkt een Tech Village opende, maar Rotterdam kon niet achter blijven. En waar anders dan op hun locatie aan het Binnenwegplein?

Technologie komt samen

Bij dit concept van een Tech Village draait alles om de modernste technologie en het beleven ervan. Een echte ontmoetingsplaats dus voor iedereen die van de nieuwste gadgets houdt, variërend van smartphones tot drones.

Domingo Corchado, Chief Customer Officer bij MediaMarkt: “MediaMarkt Tech Village Rotterdam wordt niet zomaar een vernieuwde winkel, maar echt een technologiewalhalla waarin de klantbeleving centraal staat. In Nederland en zelfs in heel Europa is dit een uniek concept. Technologieliefhebbers kunnen er urenlang rondstruinen langs de vele topmerken die we aanbieden, maar ook zelf zien en beleven wat bijvoorbeeld die allernieuwste smartphone nu zo bijzonder maakt of wat het verschil is tussen twee typen headphones. Zo komen dit soort gadgets en apparaten echt tot leven en bieden we de best mogelijke klantervaring.”

Milan was the first city where the MediaMarkt opened a Tech Village, but Rotterdam couldn't stay behind. And where else but at their location on Binnenwegplein?

Technology bringing people together

This concept of a Tech Village is all about state-of-the-art technology and experiencing it yourself. A real meeting place for everyone who loves the latest gadgets, ranging from smartphones to drones.

Domingo Corchado, Chief Customer Officer at MediaMarkt: “MediaMarkt Tech Village Rotterdam will not just be a renewed store, but a real technology Valhalla in which the customer experience is central. This is a unique concept in the Netherlands and even throughout Europe. Technology enthusiasts can spend hours wandering around the many top brands that we offer, but also see and experience for themselves what makes the latest smartphone so special or what the difference is between two types of headphones. This is how these kinds of gadgets and devices really come to life and we offer the best possible customer experience.”

Not just a store

Of course, a meeting place cannot exist without a cool barista bar. In addition, various 'boutiques' are placed in the store where products are displayed that you can test yourself. Also nice: the MediaMarkt Tech Village gives daily demonstrations of the latest technological gadgets.

But that is not everything. When you visit the Binnenwegplein the coming days, you will notice that the MediaMarkt is building a Tech Village here. The new facade and entrance will be fitted with striking LED lighting. In addition to the typical red colours, green is also central. Striking green walls full of plants provide a warm and fresh look, which completes the new experience in the store.

Finally, the Tech Village offers a pick-up machine where you can pick up your orders 27/4 and there will be a room to have your devices repaired.

Will you be the first to arrive at the opening?
