Dear Visitor

From 27 to 29 August, Germany's own nationwide ordering and communication platform for volume suppliers of shoes will be held once again at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair.

On those days you will have direct access to manufacturers and sellers from traditional emerging markets at the convention.
More than 160 international exhibitors will be presenting their new collections at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair, Hall 8b. All segments of the shoe industry are represented. We are also looking forward to being able to present exhibitors who are able to ship less than 100 pairs. Furthermore, we will be welcoming a range of exhibitors who can tend to your post- orders and who can be helpful in optimising your needs.
Be guest in our Buyers Lounge where you can hold private conversations with manufacturers or partners.

Free bus shuttle to the Gallery Shoes and the airport

Alongside free entry, the new convention concept entails a free bus shuttle between the Gallery Shoes and the "tag it!". Direct transfer from the fairgrounds to Düsseldorf Airport is also free. The all-round satisfaction package available to all visitors is rounded off with a deal on food available to all registered specialty buyers for free.

On-site shoe design, workshops, and a contest

A special emphasis on added value for visitors and exhibitors comes in the form of the new "tag it!" concept. One of the highlights is "Die Schuhleister". This young company, although well-known in the industry, offers the opportunity to design a shoe with the manufacturer on-site and enter preproduction. Young designers and start-ups who create a shoe with the "Schuhleisters" can participate in a contest: the shoe with the best design and business plan in the categories Women's, Men's, and Sneakers will be rewarded with subsidised production worth 5,000 euros each. It's a unique opportunity for you to get in touch with young designers and be inspired by their creativity.

"Schuhleister" will also offer design workshops every three days. The cobbler trade will also be very vividly presented by a master cobbler.
