(September 2015) –  GDS – Global Destination for Shoes & Accessories and tag it! – The Private Label Show, will have new show days starting with the summer 2016 event:  both trade fairs will be held from July 26 to 28, 2016 - from Tuesday to Thursday. This new concept was adopted upon the explicit request of retailers. “In in-depth conversations with our advisory board we have decided to change the weekdays for the event. We want to constantly optimize the trade shows GDS and tag it! for retail. By opting for the new sequence of days we will avoid the Friday which is one of the days generating the highest retail sales. This means retailers can optimally use these three days without having to decide between a trade show visit and a sales day in the store,” explained Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. The next GDS and tag it! will be held from February 10 - 12 February 2016, as usual from Wednesday to Friday. But from July 2016 on, the new show days will take effect.
