The international shoe fair GDS/GLS from 14 to 16 March will feature a sizeably extended exhibitor spectrum. Likewise, GDS/GLS has also experienced another quantum leap in terms of exhibitor quality.

Including the sourcing fair global shoes & accessories, a total of 1,365 exhibitors (correct as of 20 February) will be showing their new shoe and bag collections for Autumn/Winter 2008/09 as well as trends for the current season at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.

Taken together the Düsseldorf shoe fair trio has grown by 2%. GDS/GLS alone posted a 13% rise in exhibitor figures (all data refers to the previous year's event).
