Düsseldorf’s footwear and accessories trade show GDS and Tag it! – The Private Label Show will hold their upcoming editions in July 2016 and February 2017 following a different day sequence from Tuesday to Thursday, leaving Friday out of the shows’ schedules.

"After in-depth discussions with the advisory board, we decided an altered sequence of days […]. At the request of the trade we have bypassed Fridays on the new days sequence, as one of the top-selling days for trade. Thus, retailers can better leverage the shows and do not have to choose between trade fair and sales," commented Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, president and chief executive at Messe Dusseldorf.

The next edition of GDS will be taking place on July 26-28, while the forthcoming winter appointment is scheduled for February 07-09, 2017.
