You are here: GLOBAL SHOES. General Information.
GLOBAL SHOES is the international leading trade show for sourcing in Europe and is focussed on volume trading in all of his facets.
GLOBAL SHOES as a unique segment of GDS started in 2007 at a biannual trade fair. Before that GDS was the first trade fair in Europe which has recognized the potential of Asian market and opened the European market to exhibitors from Asia. It is located next to GDS in halls 8a and 8b.
What is the concept of the tradeshow?
Through growing globalization and structural changes within the international shoe market the area of International Basic has evolved in a very important and promising market segment within GDS. Before Global Shoes started, this important segment did not have its own communication and ordering platform. With GLOBAL SHOES occurring simultaneously with the GDS we offer a completely platform for you to position yourself in the international market, to present your products, and to demonstrate your performance and service offering. The newly conceived Global Shoes trade fair has therefore a clearly defined goal: to bring volume producers of the worldwide footwear market in contact with volume buyers
