GDS: RETAILERS IN GOOD MOOD FOR ORDERINGShoe trade fair GDS in Düsseldorf attracted 28,600 visitors from 79 countries (7,000 of whom also attended Global shoes) Sep. 10-12. Exhibitors reported a significant increase in quality and a positive mood amongst buyers. More than one out of two visitors came from abroad and this time more buyers from Benelux, Scandinavia, Great Britain and the Baltic states were registered. In addition, exhibitors also reported a larger proportion of non-European buyers. Retailers were in their best mood for ordering over the past few days, because some exhibitors stated that their stockrooms were already empty so they now need to catch up.
At this edition of GDS, 780 exhibitors (1,800 collections) presented the key trends for the s/s 2011 order season. Another 410 exhibitors participated in Global Shoes. The next GDS and Global Shoes fair will be held from Mar. 16-18 and from Sep. 7-9, 2011.
