The Michigan Shoe Market is one of the industry’s oldest and most respected regional trade show shoe markets and is proudly sponsored and run by industry representatives serving on the Michigan Shoe Travelers Association Board. Established in 1936, this Market continues its rich tradition allowing shoe and accessory manufacturers and retailers from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan to gather under one roof to transact business.
Noted for its Midwestern authenticity and friendliness, the Michigan Shoe Market hosts two Shoe Markets each year to showcase the upcoming season’s fashions:
Our FALL SHOE MARKET is our largest Market of the year featuring over 200 exhibitors of Women’s Fashion and Mid-Fashion Footwear, Athletic, Men’s, Children’s Shoes and Specialty Lines and Boots. We utilize three floors of the hotel for room exhibitors and the first floor of the Hotel is the Market home of the atrium and ballroom for booth exhibitors. This Market also offers opportunities for at once buys for Spring and Summer. Approximately 300 - 350 retail stores attend from Michigan, Indiana and Ohio and surrounding areas.
On Saturday evening before the Market, exhibitors can unwind from their travels at our complimentary Salesmen’s Dinner and Cocktail Hour. On Sunday evening, retailers and exhibitors mingle over complimentary Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres. Each Market day morning, complimentary coffee and donuts are available in the atrium area. A complimentary Deli Buffet Luncheon awaits our retailers each afternoon.
