Footwear Today, a Datateam Business Media Ltd brand, has announced that it has taken over the management of the London Shoe Show!

Coming into effect for the February 2024 show, the same great event will return to the capital city but with a seamless change of management behind the scenes from Justin Morgan, Managing Director of HB Shoes, to Charlotte Steadman and the team at Footwear Today.

For exhibitors it will continue to offer great value for money in an ideal location for our industry. Show visitors will also benefit from this, plus the opportunity to see the same variety of amazing footwear brands.

The London Shoe Show will continue to be supported by the British Footwear Association (BFA), which has had an integral role in assisting the event for the past few years.

The ethos of the event has always been ‘For the industry, by the industry’, and this will remain the vision for its future as well.

Justin Morgan, Managing Director of HB Shoes, said: “With the growth of the London Shoe Show and the time taken to manage it, we have been working closely with both Footwear Today and the BFA for the last number of seasons. But we are delighted to now pass the organisation and management of the show across to Footwear Today from February 2024.

“I am passionate about this industry and the purpose of this show and I do believe it will benefit enormously from Footwear Today’s involvement. Their own show has grown immensely in the past couple of years, so I feel that taking on the London Shoe Show is a natural next step for the team.”

Charlotte Steadman, Publication and Event Manager at Footwear Today, added: “We share Justin’s passion for this industry and we take great pride in this new responsibility and the opportunity to be able to develop the London Shoe Show further.

“We have an impressive track record with our Footwear Today Live show in Birmingham and we are really excited to grow the London event alongside our partnership with the BFA.

“We send our thanks to Justin for giving us this opportunity, and we look forward to working together to create London’s leading footwear trade show!”

The next edition of the London Shoe Show will take place on 10-11 September 2023, open between 9.30am – 6.00pm, at the ILEC Conference Centre, Ibis London Earls Court.
