The organization of footwear trade show What About Shoes has announced some novelties for its second edition, taking place from August 24-26 in Berlin’s Postbahnhof. The first one is a different schedule of the fair as results of a survey among exhibitors and buyers after the last edition. Therefore, instead of taking place from Friday to Sunday, next summer edition will open from Sunday to Tuesday.

Apart from a new schedule, What About Shoes is also going to launch a new marketplace. According to the organizers, this virtual presentation and sales platform provides buyers with the opportunity to place orders even after the order show, thus enhancing and facilitating the sales and ordering process for exhibitors and buyers alike.

Finally, the trade show will also host following newcomers in August: Spanish labels Desigual and El Naturalista, Californian shoemaker TOMS and Feroz from Colombia.
