Business on the market is picking up again
This is how Ulrike Kähler, Managing Director of Igedo Company and Gallery Project Director, opened the preview of the upcoming Gallery SHOES & Fashion, taking place from the 29th to the 31st of August 2021 at the Areal Böhler in Düsseldorf
“We’re really looking forward to holding the event on the regular date, which, along with the earlier Gallery FASHION, is now back to every season as usual. We are delighted to be welcoming so many returning exhibitors to Gallery SHOES including Apple of Eden, Arche, Benetton, Bibi Lou, Blundstone, Ecoalf, Fly London, Gant, Hip Shoe Style, Högl, Lola Cruz, Macarena, Pertini, Ria Menorca, Scotch & Soda, Softinos, Tosca Blu, United Nude, Sioux and Gabor”, stated Ulrike Kähler

“I’m looking forward to attending the physical edition of Gallery SHOES in Düsseldorf with our brands. It’s important to be able to showcase collections again in person and we hope to see lots of customers over the three days of the fair”, commented Achim Gabor, Chairman of the Executive Board of Gabor Shoes AG.

Overall, the Igedo team is reporting positive feedback, particularly from the German industry: visitors and exhibitors are "really looking forward to participating in the important shoe ordering platform in the heart of Germany and the mood is very optimistic". As they emphasised, being able to touch products and hold them in hands is one of the most important criteria when placing shoe orders.

Visitors to Gallery Shoes & Fashion are required to provide either proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or a negative COVID-19 test to enter the Areal Böhler. Usual COVID protection measures still apply when visiting the event.

In addition to fully occupied halls, Igedo also announced a line-up of events such as the HDS-L press conference, the HDS-L-Junior Awards ceremony, TW Order Info and the forecasts by Fashion Trend Pool.
