The leading footwear and accessories trade fair for German, European and International markets.
For every look the right world: Enjoy THREE WORLDS OF SHOES AND ACCESSORIES – with the new segmentation, you can discover collections and trends as easily as taking a stroll through the great shopping capitals of the world.
HIGHSTREET is the main shopping street with fashion-forward collections and big brands with their flagship stores.
The products range from modern and sporty to classic and health related. PERFORMANCE, ACCESSORIES and KIDS each have their own special zone within this world.
POP UP presents brands and collections with a distinctive image, which start trends in urban hotspots and whose products are always being presented in an innovative way.
STUDIO stands for premium brands that are part of the luxury locations of this centre. It is here that trends are set. Here, style can be anything from simplistic to glamorous. It is craftsmanship, real design and perfection.
Funding is sometimes available for this event from the British Footwear Association for eligible companies.
