The first trade show with the same name was successfully held in autumn 2010.  Initially, the organizers of the "footwear" trade show planned to make it annual, but they met the wants of exhibitors and buyers providing them with opportunity to meet twice a year – in the run-up to spring and autumn. The second international specialized trade fair "Footwear. Bags. Accessories" will be held already in February, and the third one - in autumn 2011.

The exhibitors will present autumn-winter collections at the autumn forum; while during the winter trade show, they will present footwear for spring-summer season.
