Chicago, IL (March 2016) – Starting this summer, GDS – Global Destination for Shoes & Accessories and tag it! – The Private Label Show, will take place on new show days: both trade fairs will be held from July 26 - 28, 2016 - from Tuesday to Thursday at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.  The dates for the winter edition 2017 have also been set: February 7- 9, 2017, also from Tuesday to Thursday.

The new days were adopted at the explicit request of retailers. “We decided to change the order of trade show days after in-depth talks with the advisory board. GDS is subject to an ongoing optimization process. In response to retailers’ requests the new sequence of days avoids the Friday which is one of the strongest selling days for retail. This way retailers can optimally use these trade shows and do not have to decide between a trade show visit and selling at their store,” explained Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf.

For further information on visiting or exhibiting at GDS 2016 and/or GDS 2017, contact Messe Düsseldorf North America, 150 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 2920, Chicago, IL 60601.
