The fair organisers, Messe Düsseldorf, say that so far the response from the exhibitor side is very promising. The new look GDS will other a host of exciting shoe and accessories labels that have already registered, including several first-time exhibitors. Similarly promising is the registration status for “tag it! by gds – the show for private labels in shoes and accessories”.

The first edition of tag it! by GDS takes place from July 29 to August 1 and is the metamorphosis of the fair previously known as Global Shoes.
