The debut of the new earlier edition of GDS as the global destination for shoes & accessories in July 2014 will be running in parallel with a new revised trade fair format: tag it! by GDS – the show for private label in shoes and accessories, which will be held as a development of the former Global Shoes exhibition.

The new fair format is aimed at international manufacturers and retailers of footwear and accessories with the focus on private label production. The trade fair, which starts one day earlier than the main GDS show, is the world’s only exhibition that covers private labels for footwear and accessories and caters for all the relevant market players and has moved dates for the right time for orders in the footwear retail sector.
