Messe Düsseldorf has decided to postpone the dates of its new Pre-GDS event to Feb. 4-6 next year following a shift in dates for the big CPD show to the same timing. The big fashion fair, which will add a children’s section next February, would have coincided otherwise with the Salon du Prêt-à-Porter Feminin in Paris. As reported, the latter will also have a new footwear preview, called Starter by Midec.
