2018 Gallery Shoes Autumn/Winter

11th Mar 2018 - 13th Mar 2018

Areal Böhler

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.

EMOTIONS & REACTIONS
 
A great start in a fresh new setting. We saw very high numbers of visitors at our Berkemann booth. The tradeshow concept in the new location has been met with a very positive response, both from visitors and exhibitors. We had visitors from Germany but also an international audience from Europe and even overseas.
BERKEMANN, Michael Zoller, Brand Manager
 
The new format has gone down very well. There was a good atmosphere on all sides. A lot of customers came on the first two days especially. A huge thanks to the visitors and organisers. We were satisfied and will certainly be back.
GABOR, Achim Gabor, Chairman of the Board
 
Germany needs a shoe fair! The fresh, new vibe is very good for the event. We’ve already seen it at Gallery, which we’re also represented at. The compact format and the clearly arranged floor plans are proving popular with visitors. The atmosphere is brilliant and the numbers are good. We are happy and so are the visitors! And we hope that this cooperative spirit will continue in the future.
AGENTUR GABI HEININGER, Gabi Heininger, owner
 
It was a great start! The location and the halls look amazing. As well as a lot of customers from Germany, we also had visitors from other European countries.
NATURINO, Ombretta Scocco, Marketing Manager
 
Our summary of the first Gallery SHOES: good business in a contemporary setting! We’ve had a lot more visitors than expected. An all-round successful start in a positive atmosphere!
PURA LOPEZ, Ingrid Höing, owner of agency INGRID HÖING
 
The show is fresh and exciting, much needed and long overdue!
SKECHERS, Marvin Bernstein, Managing Partner
