GDS, key force for shoe & leather goods industry
Mar '08
From March 14 - 16, 2008 the trade fair trio GDS/GLS - International Event for Shoes, Leather Goods & More, and global shoes & accessories will bring together approximately 1,400 exhibitors from 45 countries in Dusseldorf, Germany to present their new shoe and bag collections for Autumn/Winter 2008/2009 as well as trends for the current season on about 645,800 square feet of exhibit space.

Due to the new concepts, optimized exhibit category segments and expanded ancillary program introduced at previous events, GDS now has a more fashion-driven style and is a key force for the international shoe and leather goods industry. GDS will continue this positive trend at the March 2008 event.

Exhibitors especially from Italy, Great Britain and the U.S. are increasingly interested in the event and companies such as Calvin Klein, Belle by Sigerson Morisson, Nebuloni, Ruggeri, Shubiz, Shoto, Ska Italia and Panzarasa will either participate for the first time or return to GDS after a long absence.

The success of GDS' improved exhibit category segmentation is apparent in the Exclusivity Area comprising the concept areas "prime square – value & tradition" and "white cubes -- contemporary design".

These segments will be enlarged again for the coming season in order to meet the continuously rising demand from prime brands.

The "white cubes" concept with the special "agents only" zone will function as one big showroom and was developed in close cooperation with exhibitors.
