INTERNATIONAL TRADE SHOW FOR SHOES & ACCESSORIES
A fresh and powerful wind from Düsseldorf
“Liberated and revamped for a fresh new start”: exhibitors, buyers, the press and attending associations are unanimous about the impact of the newly fledged Gallery SHOES. At the Areal Böhler venue in Düsseldorf, a new, vibrant, contemporary and modern event has been established by the IGEDO Company, which can look back on almost 70 years of industry expertise in international fashion fairs. The consensus was that the German shoe universe hasn’t seen anything like this for a long time. Strong foundations for an unshakeable new start in Düsseldorf, an international shoe tradeshow city for more than 60 years, were laid and already firmly established. Around 9,200 European professional buyers attended the new shoe fair with more than 500 international brands from 16 countries.

“We are relieved about this unanimous confirmation from the industry. In just under six months we have been laying the solid foundations with a lot of hard work. We’ve had a perfect start that will now allow us to concentrate on attracting more international professional buyers, especially from Northern Europe” sums up Ulrike Kähler, Project Director of Gallery & Gallery SHOES.
