The London Shoe Show has been rescheduled in line with customer requests, Government advice and the hotels’ protocols to October 11/ 12 2020.
Organiser, Justin Morgan, HB Shoes, commented: “Having spoken to a broad cross section of the exhibition’s regular attendees it was agreed that a later show would suit everyone’s needs. Spring 20 has been very difficult, late and short, and thankfully the arrival of some autumnal mornings has allowed autumn trading to begin already. Retailers need time to assess their spring stock-carry-forward and their autumn requirements, most of which were already committed to. The October date facilitates this and allows what will become the new norm to become established in the market.
Whilst the show is smaller this year, only on one floor, there were additional new brands wanting to show, however in line with COVID guidelines it was agreed to limit numbers to ensure the safest possible environment for our retailers and exhibitors. Some of our regular brands could not make the later date due to factory cut off dates, however they have all accepted and understood the reasoning behind an October event, and all existing exhibitors have been accommodated.”
Pre-registration on our website; www.londonshoeshow.co.uk is essential from both the hotel and organiser’s perspective- however this is literally a 30 second process.
All necessary precautions will be in place to protect everyone during the 2 days; and later evening appointments can be scheduled in advance with any exhibitors directly.
There is a fantastic selection of footwear, offering autumn as well as spring stock, high margins, point of difference and individuality-
The ingredients to keep independents, independent and strong!
“The show will offer its usual relaxed and informal setting to allow orders to be placed in a professional and focused way, however appointments and pre-registration are essential. The exhibition will afford us the opportunity to review our dates for Spring 21- this is a show designed around the retailer to maximise choice, opportunity to buy and opportunity to differentiate.” Gerard Levy, GIL Agencies, representing brands: Arche 4CCCCEES, ISSEY, MIYAKE and UNITED NUDE”
