New concept for GDS

New concept for GDS
Messe Düsseldorf will transfer the shoe fashion event to Igedo Company. The new concept of the trade fair will kicks off at Areal Böhler in Düsseldorf in late August / early September 2017
GDS will be held for the last time at the Messe Düsseldorf site from the 7th to the 9th of February. After this the Igedo Company will act, on behalf of Messe Düsseldorf, as the organiser of the shoe trade show.

Kirstin Deutelmoser, Director of GDS, sees switching the footwear trade show to the Igedo Company as an opportunity for the sector: “The market is acting ever more dynamically and requires a completely new solution. This can only be successful if it can be fundamentally rethought without having to take existing structures and traditions into consideration. For this the Igedo Company is the ideal partner.”

The new concept kicks off at Düsseldorf’s Areal Böhler venue in late August / early September 2017. Details on the new shoe trade show will be released by the Igedo Company as part of the GDS trade show event in February.

Igedo's Managing Partner Philipp Kronen is looking forward to offering the shoe sector a new home at Areal Böhler: “I am confident the sector will look favourably on a new concept at such an emotionally-charged location as Areal Böhler. Furthermore, we have an experienced project manager in the form of Ulrike Kähler who will rise to the challenge of a redesigned shoe fair. After all, she has already proven with Gallery Fashion how a good orders show works at Areal Böhler.”
