A fresh and pow­er­ful wind from Düs­sel­dorf

Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was Updates | International -

From the 27th to the 29th of Au­gust, 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”, con­cluded Ul­rike Käh­ler, Project Di­rec­tor of Gallery & Gallery Shoes, adding: “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.” Ac­cord­ing to Igedo, a lot of fac­tors con­trib­uted to suc­cess of the event: the state­ment of the trade fair as an or­der plat­form, a com­plete and in­for­ma­tive pro­gram of par­al­lel events, the place­ment of the brands by the dif­fer­ent ar­eas and even the weather co­op­er­ated. This last el­e­ment is not ir­rel­e­vant, as it al­lowed the out­door ar­eas of the in­dus­try get-to­gether to be highly fre­quented. The ser­vice in gen­eral and the at­ten­tion to de­tails al­lied to the ex­hi­bi­tion space were also highly com­mended. “We are sat­is­fied with this re­sult, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the short time­frame we had, but of course we still have our sights firmly set on our re­main­ing tar­gets for the fu­ture – and are now en­thu­si­as­ti­cally mov­ing for­ward,” con­cludes Ul­rike Käh­ler. Fu­ture editions of the Gallery Shoes trade fair will take place from the 11th to the 13th of March 2018, and then from the 2nd to the 4th of Septem­ber.
