Among the novelties pointed out are the debuts of the shows ‘Gallery Shoes Selected’ and ‘Fashion-Lifestyle’, new entrances with meeting points and catering areas, or a ‘Comfort’ zone with its own entrance.
A breath of fresh air at Gallery Shoes: with new entrances, new catering zones, new exhibitors and an additional show concept in the Fashion-Lifestyle area! Gallery Shoes is constantly developing, being extended once again with a lightweight hall and creating even more space for the individual segments. We’re certainly keeping the ball rolling!”, says Ulrike Kähler, Managing Director of Igedo Company, about the fifth edition of the Gallery Shoes, which will take place from September 1 to 3, at the Areal Bohler.
In September, visitors will find the new Entrance I in the ‘Altes Kesselhaus’ in combination with the main catering area. An open forecourt is being created at Entrance II, which is located between the ‘Blankstahlhalle’, ‘Edelstahlhalle’, ‘Alte Federnfabrik’ and ‘Glühofenhalle’. This new forecourt will serve as a meeting point and creates a direct link to the ‘Alte Schmiedehallen’. Via Entrance III, visitors can reach the ‘Halle am Wasserturm’, the ‘Kaltstahlhalle’ and the ‘Alte Schmiedehallen’.
The Kids’ zone is moving into a new, additional lightweight construction. This move underlines the importance of the children’s shoe segment for Gallery Shoes: close to Entrance I and the large catering zone at the ‘Altes Kesselhaus’.
“This will not only create a new vibe for the visitors, but overall more space for Contemporary and Urban. These further developments are also benefitting the Kids’ and Comfort zones. Both segments are integral parts of the Gallery Shoes Usp. And we are dedicating our full attention to both areas. The Kids’ zone will be located in a new hall in a new area at the venue: as an even more present, light-flooded microcosmos, which could be its own stand-alone event. We are also enhancing the Comfort area with a new, separate entrance that will emphasize the presence of this segment at the Areal Böhler even further,” continues Ulrike Kähler.
