The next edition of Gallery Shoes & Fashion, the fair that takes place in Düsseldorf, was delayed by a month. Originally scheduled for March 7th through 9th, the live fair moved its date to April 18th through 20th, 2021. “We believe this is the best service we can offer to the segment, as of right now. All the changes were made so as to allow for at least one physical fair in the first half of 2021”, stated Ulrike Kähler, CEO of Igedo Company, the entity that organizes the event. The related Showroom Concept, done live as well, is scheduled for April 16th – 20th, 2021.

The decision was made “due to the German Federal government’s forecast of additional measures being set up for the upcoming weeks to delay the effects of the pandemic. It was clear, during the internal meetings had by organizers, that the fair couldn’t have taken place during the initial part of March 2021. That’s why we decided, with short notice, to move the date of Gallery Shoes & Fashion”. That’s what Mr. Kähler said, according to the official website of the fair, which will host many Italian companies. Specifically, those participating are the ones with the most ties to the German marketplace.
