Gallery SHOES

The new order platform for Shoes, Bags and Accessories at the location Düsseldorf

GALLERY SHOES provides information in a new design, with a new language and on an international scale. A strong trade show is what drives the sector forward. Just continuing GDS with a different framework simply makes no sense. Everything will be completely thought out again across all levels! With its architecture Areal Böhler not only signals a clear change to Messe Düsseldorf. Gallery SHOES also means a return to an order-oriented trade show. This is also demonstrated by the later date from 27 to 29 August 2017 – from Sunday to Tuesday. The focus of Gallery SHOES lies on the middling to high price segment. In terms of exhibitors we want to achieve a mix of 65% international and 35% German brands.
