For some time now, the organizers of the German fair have been implementing novelties at the event. Already in the first edition of the year 2022, they changed the name to SHOES DÜSSELDORF, focusing on the exhibition of footwear and accessories.
For the second semester, the dates scheduled for the summer season will be Sunday 28th, Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th August 2022, according to its organizers.
The days of celebration for the 2023 calendar were also established. The presentation of the proposals for Autumn/Winter 2023-2024 will take place between February 26th and 28th. This change means anticipating the usual March edition, thanks to the discussion between the actors of the sector and the fair organization.
Düsseldorf as a meeting point
The latest version of SHOES DÜSSELDORF took place between March 6th and 8th at the Areal Böhler exhibition center.
The industry had its meeting point in this exhibition, where the trends for Autumn/Winter 2022-2023 were presented and a participation of more than 600 companies was registered, both local and from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Turkey and the Netherlands.
In parallel, industry and trade were analyzed at the conference of the Federal Association of the Footwear and Leather Goods Industry (HDS/L), with contributions from the German Footwear Retail Association (BDSE).
The novelty was the SNEAKERS AND SPEAKERS meeting, specialized in this type of sports footwear, as a space for knowledge and networking.
