An event solely dedicated to footwear

Finally it is time for India's first ever exposition on footwear and accessories,India Shoes & Accessories Forum 2012 (ISAF'12), a golden opportunity for fresh entrepreneurs, looking to be a part of the Indian footwear and accessories industry . It not only gives them a chance to capitalize on retail business opportunities in the region but also provides a perfect analysis to understand the consumption and buying patterns across the country. What makes this forum unique is the fact that it is a congregation of influential global and national buyers and will witness participation of 100 plus retail brands like Bata, Metro Shoes, Puma etc, manufacturers, raw material suppliers exhibiting innovation in shoes and accessories.

Such a forum is the need of the hour as the Indian footwear industry alone has a growth rate of 8-10% yearly and is set to experience a phenomenal growth in coming years. On the other hand with more and more accessories oriented brands like “Aldo” and “Accessorize” setting up stores in India, the rapidly flourishing nature of the Indian accessories industry is no longer a secret . This rapid growth of the industry is mainly due to the burgeoning Indian middle class now being the biggest driver of consumption.

ISAF'12 will bring together a variety of footwear and accessories brands, national and international manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, designers, trend forecasters and many other key professionals of the industry. With Woly, one of the leading brands of shoe accessories being the main sponsor, only adds to the credibility of this forum. Also by providing first- hand assessment of the footwear and accessories retail market in India as well as an international platform to showcase your portfolio by meeting a cross section of potential business associates has made this forum a not-to-be-missed event. Keeping in mind the demand for such a show, we have decided to make ISAF'12 an entry free event barring of course the exclusive and comprehensive conference about the shoes and accessories industry for which there will be a fee.

The main features of ISAF'12 will be firstly a franchising exposition where entrepreneurs will meet the widest assemblage of the footwear and accessories retail fraternity and other prospective business partners who are willing to invest . A high powered paid conference on shoe retailing will help entrepreneurs gain an edge in the market and learn some tricks of the trade. Secondly the “Shoes & Accessories Theater” will allow leading and aspiring brands to showcase their collections through a fashion presentation using models. This theater will only be showcasing fashion that is current and cutting edge which will be interpreted via fast forward global trends in construction and embellishments.

Last but not the least, ISAF'12 will be hosting the Indian Shoes & Accessories Awards which will be honoring those performances that stand out amongst brand and retail companies as well as professionals who are nominated from the industry for the year 2011.

All in all, with participation of more than 400 exhibitors and the attendance of 15000 plus visitors and delegates belonging to the biggest organizations in retail makes India Shoes & Accessories Forum 2012 an event to look out for.
