Featuring well known and emerging footwear brands from around Australia and the world, the Australian Shoe Fair is the ultimate buying experience. Showcasing the hottest footwear trends for Spring Summer 09/10, the fair is a must for buyers sourcing quality, key trends for women, men and children. The 2009 event occurs from February 13 -15, 2009 at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.

With a changing market and challenging times for the industry ahead, the Australian Shoe Fair remains solid. Meeting the needs of buyers on many levels, it continues to bring some of the finest names in footwear to the industry.

Ensuring that the Australian Shoe Fair provides the very best for all visitors, free Retail Workshops have been announced for the February fair. The Retail Workshops will guide retailers in making effective purchasing and merchandising decisions. International trainer, Mark Davis from The Davis Consulting Group, will speak on two key issues; ‘Visual Merchandising to sell 30% more’ and ‘Pick the right product mix to maximise profits’. Both of these topics are at the core of the retail business utilising proven strategies and relevant case studies.

With adventurous, unique shoes becoming the ultimate statement accessory, many exhibitors travel the world in search of the latest trends for the forthcoming season. The Australian Shoe Fair brings these companies together under one roof unlike any other fair. Brands already confirmed to participate include Zola Collection, Chinese Laundry, Estilo, Earth, Ecco, Bata, Holster, Fiebiger, Birkenstock, Therapy, Windsor Smith, Antoine & Stanley and Louis Epstein.
