GLOBAL SHOES back on course for growth
Aug '09
GLOBAL SHOES – leading trade show for sourcing is back on course for growth. After the global economic climate put another clear damper on the fair in March exhibitors are now returning to Düsseldorf. Some 380 of them will feature in Hall 8a and 8b of the Düsseldorf exhibition centre from 11 to 13 September.Compared with the previous year's event this still constitutes a drop of 15% but over the March event an impressive 34% plus.

GLOBAL SHOES therefore once again underlines its significance as a leading fair for OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and volume suppliers. Joint stand exhibitors from such countries as Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore have opted for Düsseldorf again this season after dipping out of the March event due to the world economic crisis. India's Council for Leather Exports (CLE) is now also recommending its shoe manufacturers to participate at GLOBAL SHOES again.

“After a turbulent start to the year the situation in the world footwear business appears to have settled a little.Many producers are looking to the future more optimistically again,” explains Kirstin Deutelmoser, Director at GLOBAL SHOES. “We are obviously delighted that our exhibitors are opting for Düsseldorf again. Manufacturers who have otherwise hung back with trade fair participations are showcasing their products at GLOBAL SHOES. But they know they can do real business in Düsseldorf because all key European volume buyers attend the fair.”

The fair's around 380 exhibitors from 21 countries will again be presenting a wide range of women's, men's, children's and sports shoes through to casual and wellness footwear. Commenting on this Kirstin Deutelmoser says: “GLOBAL SHOES is a representative reflection of the volume market business. Virtually all key suppliers will be attending in September.” Strong market suppliers include the likes of Novo Model Scoop (Israel), Michel X (Hong Kong), Cortina China, Studio 56 and Allied Champion (all from China), JC Concept and A&A Mad Mad (both from Malaysia), Eurowind (Taiwan), Euromax (France) and RAM Fashion (India).

The forthcoming GDS – International Event for Shoes & Accessories and GLOBAL SHOES – leading trade show for sourcing will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 11 to 13 September 2009. A total of 1,145 exhibitors from 42 countries will be presenting their latest shoe and bag collections (correct as of:20/08/2009). On show at GDS will be 1,800 collections for Spring/Summer 2010 plus trends for the current season.
