The German trade fair organizer, Igedo, indicated that Gallery Fashion & Shoes will be held from Jan. 30 to Feb.1 and Gallery Shoes & Fashion will run from March 7 to 9 in Düsseldorf. The company confirmed the format introduced last year resulting from the merger of footwear, apparel and accessories.
Ulrike Kähler, Igedo’s managing director and project director, said that the company has already received the first confirmations for the January edition. The registration deadline for Gallery Fashion & Shoes has been extended to mid-December for exhibitors. Visitor registration is already open.

Traditionally, Gallery Shoes was held in March and in August and Gallery Fashion in January and July.
