Messe Duesseldorf to Launch Shoe Event in Shanghai
Messe Düsseldorf’s subsidiary, Messe Düsseldorf China (MDC), will launch a new branded shoes and bags event GDS Select – Premium European Shoe Fair this year from 17th to 19th April at the Shanghai Exhibition Center (SEC).
GDS Select will be held as a part of the China International Footwear & Leather goods Exhibition (CIFL), which is jointly organised by the China Commerce Association for General Merchandise, Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai), Adsale Exhibition Services, and Shanghai Baicheng Commerce Service.
The event is also supported by the China Commerce Association for General Merchandise (CCAGM), with an autumn edition of GDS Select currently planned for 2013 to run in conjunction with the CHIC fashion fair in Beijing.
GDS Select is a trade only event and will feature a selection of international brands. Messe Düsseldorf anticipates gross exhibition space of both events to reach 20,000 m2 with the attendance of more than 200 exhibitors.
