Footwear Today Live returned to the National Conference Centre (NCC) in Birmingham last week.

The two-day show welcomed over 300 footwear retailers from all across the UK for yet another successful buying event for the upcoming SS24 season.

There were 136 brands on display with all their latest trends, materials and designs. This indicates the impressive growth of Footwear Today Live, as the event occupied nearly the whole of the NCC, taking over nine rooms across two levels, whereas this time last year it was just one room!

As the publisher of Footwear Today magazine, the leading title for the footwear industry, the show is the perfect opportunity for independent and multiple footwear retailers to meet with their favourite brands, see new ranges for upcoming seasons, and hopefully make new contacts for the future. It really is the perfect mix of both brands and retailers under one roof – providing not just plenty of networking opportunities but an all-new buying location in a manageable and friendly environment.

The event also included a complimentary lunch, plus refreshments, for all visitors and exhibitors, which went down very well on both days, and was no doubt part of the appeal to pay a visit!

Charlotte Steadman, Event Manager for Footwear Today Live, said: “I am so pleased that the show was another huge success! We had many more visitors than our previous editions, thanks in part to the increased size of the show with more brands in attendance than before.

“We’ve already had some fantastic feedback on this September edition, with a lot of comments about the convenience of the venue, and the fact that the event is growing so fast with such a huge variety of brands on display.

“I’m excited to now start making plans for when the show returns in February! And I’m pleased to report that quite a few brands have already signed up to exhibit again, so I hope to see you all back at the show next year!”
