The organizers of the Gallery Shoes trade show in Düsseldorf last month judged its results as positive, as the number of visitors reached 9,800, or 300 more than expected, in spite of very bad weather hampering travel to the city. The space in the fairgrounds was fully booked with a total of 350 exhibitors showing some 500 brands. Some of them complained about the scarcity of foreign visitors, who generally prefer to visit Micam in Milan.
